Review: General Hospital’s James Patrick Stuart stuns on ‘The Apple Tree’ (Includes first-hand account)

The CD opens with “Rest in Peace,” which features his rich, rumbling voice, and it is followed by “Walking on Water,” which Digital Journal described as delightful. It immediately breaks into the mid-tempo “Good Morning Sunrise,” which has a retro vibe to it.

“The Keeper of the Lighthouse” is soothing and resonant, while “Mr. Give” is witty and entertaining. “That’s All” is a controlled ballad, while “The Book of Love” is the highlight track on this collection, which his character, Valentin, sang to Nina Reeves (played by Michelle Stafford at the time) on General Hospital at last year’s Nurses Ball.

Equally remarkable “My Dear,” while the lyrics “Nothing Without You” are filled with vivid imagery and raw emotions. After the piano-driven “So It Goes,” the album closes with an a capella version of “You Are She,” featuring Jeremy Clyde, and on a fitting note with the soothing “Lullaby with My Father.”

The Apple Tree is available on Apple Music and on Spotify.

The Verdict

Overall, this album is a must for any fans of actor James Patrick Stuart or anybody interested in listening to a collection of well-crafted soft rock and adult contemporary music. The Apple Tree garners an A rating.
