The album opens with the upbeat and mid-tempo "Days of Old," and he shows his mellow vocals on the acoustic ballad "Until the End." It immediately breaks into the youthful "Over and Over Again," while he displays his sassy side on the laid-back "Daydream." Equally beautiful is the acoustic ballad "Yeyo," while he showcases his spitfire and husky vocals on "Holy Water." It continues with the mid-tempo "Haunted Holiday," while he changes the pace with the haunting ballad "Romantic."
The highlight song on the album is "Josie," written for his mother, where his rich, crystalline vocals are reminiscent of such timeless artists as James Taylor and John Denver. Its heartfelt lyrics are pure poetry. The Miller Place CD closes with the piano-driven "Souvenir," which has a neat echo effect to it.
Most impressive about this collection is that the Big Shot front-man pays homage to the artists that have inspired him growing up, with his own original music that is reminiscent to the sounds and tones of his early influences (Paul McCartney, James Taylor and Elton John).
The Verdict
Overall, Mike DelGuidice delivers on his debut studio album Miller Place. It garners an A rating, and it is recommended for any fan of Big Shot, Mike DelGuidice, or anybody interested in hearing good music from one of Long Island's best singer-songwriters out there.
Miller Place is available for purchase on Amazon and on iTunes.
