New Blaine Sharp album shines like the brightest suns
(Published: October 18, 2019)

Blaine Sharp has a voice that is both timeless and classic.

On one hand, his singing haunts the memory like crooners from the past. It sounds like "old radio"; the dreamy, loving tone of his voice has echoes of Frank Sinatra and his contemporaries. But the modern touches in the production give it a new feeling. It's a balancing act that Sharp successfully keeps consistent on his latest album, Wanderlust.

The initial single and opening title track introduce listeners to what is essentially a travelogue. Sharp comes across as a hopeless romantic looking for bliss while circling the globe. Sharp's warm singing caresses the ears like the softest of pillows, gorgeously anchored by the autumn breeze produced by his band. "Slow Boat to China" features some of Sharp's finest, most moving vocals. It's in front of the mix, and he's got dazzling pipes. The engaging piano, tasteful guitar, and vibrant drumming propel the track forward, giving the sensation of an evening cruise.

Probably the best cut on the record is "Road to Nowhere." The crystalline beauty of "Road to Nowhere," especially Sharp's eloquent singing, is poetry in motion. This is among the year's prettiest albums; it shines like the brightest of suns.
