Jeffrey Slape is a Folk/Rock artist from Georgia who has a new EP called "Cycles".
His acoustic style is so mellow and laid back that he makes the perfect music to just sit in your house and zone out to. His songs are simple with guitar and vocal but they work extremely well.
His style is so laid back the EP almost blends together like one long song. This is a good thing in my opinion because it works. One of my favorites is a song called "For My Father". Any man with a good strong father in his life can relate to this song. His guitar playing is beautiful and flows perfectly with the lyrics.
I actually like that there are no drums in the songs. Another song called "The Reassembling" is again a song others can relate to. Especially if you have been through something rough and you needs to piece your life and your mind back together. It is hard to find good songwriting like this anymore. It makes you look forward to a full length album from him to see what is next.
The CD is well recorded and each song seems a bit short but that is fine.
This type of music is for grown folks. Really mature and easy listening to brighten any day!
You can buy the EP at itunes here!
