The Past Echoes.
 
The Past Echoes. Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $10.00
Artist: Johnny Stanec.
 
 
Quantity:
 
The second solo record from the former leader of First IN Space is a combination of acoustic and rock songs. Live, Johnny usually performs solo acoustic and wanted some of this record to reflect that. Nicely done too, we might add. And, like on his first solo outting, he plays just about all of the instruments (Dolus McCormick also contributes some piano and backing vocals on a few tracks). On the more fleshed out songs, he pulled together all his influences to create something unique to him and where he is musically now. His music has been described by Cleveland Scene as a "mix of Tom Petty, Jesse Malin, and various mid-west bands such as the Replacements." "There’s hints of Ryan Adams as well as influential nods to Jessie Mallin all over his music. Stanec is an incredible player, but most importantly an incredible songwriter. It’s about time someone gives him credit for it." - BuzzBin Magazine We still hear "echoes" of The Gin Blossoms in Johnny's music, especially on the more fully fleshed numbers here. Well done! EXCELLENT!!
