“Cry” Thompson Newkirk

A silky smooth voice accompanies a soothing bluesy country rock track.  “Cry” by Thompson Newkirk is a song for kicking cans around town with your head hung at whatever place you choose to keep it but the song recommends you hang it.  The pacing starts off with a driving harmony section that develops into a heavy hitting rock ballad.  The dynamics fade and then rebuild into an uplifting section and rhythmic break.  The guitar solo is bluesy and crunchy, it reminds me of going out to jam band music festivals in the northeast with a twinge of country and blues.  The outro builds into three part harmonies repeating the hook as the song jams out.  Definitely for fans of a combination of; John Mayer with more edge, My Morning Jacket with more country, or Zac Brown Band.
