John Michael Hersey: Dreamtime

NYC singer/songwriter John Michael Hersey has released his new album Dreamtime. The fourteen tracks are retro sounding pop that is straight from Top 40 radio. The album is nice enough for what it is, but this not music that is relevant in today's world. More so, it is an amalgam of every hit pop artist one would care to name. Try to envision a top 40 cover band that happens to be doing all original music, but that still sounds like a bunch of covers. The album is played well, the songs are decently crafted, but it's all been heard before, Billy Joel, Barry Manilow, Neil Diamond, Boz Scaggs, it's all there. This is an album by an obviously talented artist, but also one who needs to find their own voice. Steam and buy Dreamtime at the link below.
