Leave It Alone EP
MW / self-released
Mark Witt has an arresting style in the Americana field with some poppy touches. His debut EP sees him tackle some interesting self-penned songs. The title track sees him do a mid-tempo tune with a rueful lyric that suits him just fine.
"Big Portraits" has him do a slow, haunting song that recalls prime Wilco. His vocal is strong and assured. "Not Gonna Crawl" is one of the strongest songs, as Lexi Bloor adds a sublime vocal to the proceedings. Witt's made a strong debut, may he follow it up soon.
