article imageReview: Drake White knows how to 'Spark' on breakthrough country album Special

By Markos Papadatos     Aug 20, 2016 in Music
On August 19, country singer Drake White released his breakthrough country album "Spark," via his label, Dot Records, and it is solid.
He co-wrote 10 out of the 12 tracks on the CD. The album opens with the mid-tempo yet soulful "Heartbeat," and it is followed by the catchy "Story." He shows the gruffness in his voice on the piano-driven ballad "Makin' Me Look Good Again." "It Feels Good" has a laid-back and mellow vibe to it.
His vocals on "Livin' The Dream" are reminiscent of a Billy Currington tune, while "I Need Real" is authentic and autobiographical. He traces his roots on the bittersweet "Back To Free." Equally noteworthy is "Live Some," while the slow-moving "Waitin' On The Whiskey To Work" has a bluesy vibe to it. The CD closes with the spitfire "Elvis" and the unapologetic "Take Me As I Am," where the listener can recall Andy Grammer.
The Verdict
Overall, Drake White stuns on his debut studio album Spark. There is a lot of musical diversity on this project, where no two songs have the same identities. It earns four out of five stars.
