Tod Hughes Project 'Changing Gears' - Self Release

Hughes is a singer/songwriter from Calgary, Alberta and this EP of six songs is a debut release. Clocking in at just shy of 22 minutes it is pleasant listen with production from fellow musicians Spencer Cheyne & Craig Newnes. It comprises commercial radio tunes that are melodic and unobtrusive. The soul-based groove of The Quiet is driven by the Hammond B3 of Mike Little. The Only Person Who Won’t drink With Me is You has a nice county honky tonk swing, with Mitch Fay adding some nice guitar lines over tinkling piano. Changing Gears will serve as a taste of things to come.
