John Dyer’s CD came across my desk and immediately caught my attention thanks for the beautiful graphic design of the front cover. As I began to play tracks from this record, I was as impressed with the music, as I was with the artwork.
Dyer writes in a style closer to that of a poet than a pop star, yet his songs are memorable and quite melodic throughout. At times, the lyrics were far too deep for my usual pop sensibilities, but it inspired me to think and give meaning to the words as I listened for a second and third time. Check out John Dyer’s Gostayplay and be ready for a moving experience.
