I like the distortion and lyrics. Def a 90's vibe to it. I would like to call this album rock with ingredients from neighboring genres. You can tell John puts himself into his music and shows a personal side. Def a artist of our time. "Spin the Bottle" released in June of this year, please check it out yourself here https://www.johnbanrock.com/

This is a very well composed album. John is a great singer with top notch structured songs. John's songs are catchy with a pop rock feel. Exposition Lines has a little something for everyone. If you like songs from the soul, you will like this album. This album will be released Oct. 20, 2017. For more info please visit https://johnlafayetteramey.com.

Thanks to this submission I actually read a book this summer! The book is called "A Love Like Texas Weather." This book is a classic American love story based in Austin TX. Very good read, love the Shadow Queen. "The Rock Opera" is the album that accompanied this book. I am glad I read the book first because guess what, it's a musical and the book is the play and the album is the music! Between the book and the album my imagination put together a glourious musical in and about Austin. I would love to see this show. I have been to Austin and everyone I met was nice. There definitely is a magic about Austin and this musical production by Franky and the Band encapsulates that magic. I love musicals and this is another one to add to my list of favorites. The music is upbeat, uplifting with beautiful vocals and composition. A must check out for musical and Austin fans! For more info please visit https://www.frankyandtheband.com.
