Review: "Dad" By Jimmy White

Website: Jimmy White really delivers the goods on his new Ballad "Dad". Opening with a nice piano figure, "Dad" has a very sentimental reflection on his father, and it is one with which most of us will be able to identify. With lyrics like "No one stronger, no one wiser," Jimmy's vocals are so full of emotion that at times it seems as if he's about to break down as he sings the song. This is a beautiful track with full strings sweetening the mix, and the lingering piano figure on the end reminds me very much of "Dream of the Return," by Pat Metheny and Pedro Aznar. White's timing of release is brilliant, and so is this production. The electric guitar has a bright tone, but it's not abrasive. "Dad" will touch many people who love their fathers and even some who don't. It's the perfect song and gift for Father's Day. Website: Facebook: MySpace: Twitter: YouTube: iTunes: (

The single will also be available for streaming through Spotify and for purchase through CD Baby, iTunes, and other online distributors.

Alex Katz and Katz Company will release one song per month from June to September for their latest project, Katz Company Presents: Variety Pop. "Releasing one song each month keeps me creative and gives our listeners new material on a consistent basis. We recorded these songs in my home studio rather than working with a producer this time around and had "Change Our Place" mastered by Ron McMaster at Capitol Studios and Mastering in Hollywood, CA. These songs are, without a doubt, the best work we've released thus far."
