Music: February 3 2011: Covenant Wylder

Covenant Wylder
as his event ad put it "is reminiscent of blue-eyed soul singers of the late 60s and 70s"
strong voice

Live Music with Covenant Wylder at Le Chiantelle Live Music and Ballroom on February 3 2011
Le Chiantelle Live Music and ballroom - February 3 2011 - 31 people on the sim

From: USA: Tennessee: Nashville

Songs: Arrived roughly half-way through the show. First song I heard was dedicated to the people of Egypt. I like the songs, the voice, but as I do not recognize the songs, I cannot say how his versions work compared to the originals. Or, for that matter, if I was listening to his originals or covers. Ah, there - one of the songs had the phrase "Black Widow" and one of his originals is titled Black Widow. Which does not mean, in and of itself, that no other song has that phrase in it. heh

See again? Yes
Recommend? Yes
Vague rating:
song choice:
Entertainment: 8/10
Instrument: Guitar: 8/10
Voice: 8/10
It is hard to rate voices in different genres. Some singers could have a great voice for a particular style, but if they sang something different, they would be . . . singing outside their zone. It would be and is interesting to hear a variation of a song in a different style, which is different than a singer great in one style singing in another. None of this has anything to do with this singer, but with trying to rate voices in general. The voice rating tries to be both voice in the genre I heard them sing in, and in general voice quality. Well, I take that back, somewhat. It does directly have to do with this specific singer as he has a good voice for his genre. Whichever genre that is, which, in its way, is a reminder that I'm an audience member with no advanced knowledge of music.
