It’s easy to feel that you’ve heard it all when it comes to Acoustic Blues Folk. But with his latest single “Rocky Mountains” Austin Rock cooked up a hauntingly immersive soundscape and set himself apart with his experimental ingenuity and the potency found in the lyricism. His distinctive vocals which carried equal parts charisma and pensive emotion; and that’s not something that you hear every day.
While the acoustic guitar takes the lead in the multi-layered mix, there is plenty of depth found in the contrast of the lighter notes of the keys and orchestral effects. In short, Rocky Mountains is a work of aural alchemy which offers a full bodied soundscape along with a generous serving of melody.
