Jason Brody
To The Quick
Loud Hearts

Young singer/songwriter Jason Brody has a lovely voice and a knack for writing brilliant songs. There are shades of Jeff Buckley and Rufus Wainwright without the cabaret in his music.

"Angel on Earth" is a sensitive, restrained number that lovingly compares a girl to an angel without seeming cheesy. "Come to life" is a sweet little number that ebbs and flows with Brody's angelic voice. "Circuitry" is a marvelous song with a sophisticated arrangement, Brody echoes Buckley in his less flashy moments. "I am the World" is a scarily obessive song that plays to Brody's strengths and allows him not just to be the sensitive guy. "You were nothing before you were mine" he sings.

"Midnight Stroll" is a little more up and all the better for it.

It's a strong debut by the gifted Brody.
