If you want to fall in love with a band with a unique back story and inspiration then look no further. The Tin Man, fronted by a singer-songwriter who left practicing law two years ago, is taking the music scene by storm with quirky, unique and quality music. Inspired by the Wizard of Oz, The Tin Man quotes The Wonderful World of Oz, “But, after all, brains are not the best things in the world…Once I had brains, and a heart also; so, having tried them both. I should much rather have a heart.” I love a band that is inspired by literature, and the profound impact it can have on life, music and lyrics.
The Tin Man have a greatclassic country sound mixed with a pinch of modern alternative influences. I love the beautiful, vocal-focused intro to Too Many Lines. The lyrics are catchy, smooth and make for a great listening experience. The steady variation and transition between rhythm and beats of the drums and guitars makes the song something really special.
I love how country music is about telling a story and The Tin Man are great storytellers. Every song evokes emotion and even if you aren’t going through what they are singing about, they manage to paint a vivid picture with their lyrics. Please Don’t Let Me Go and Already Gone showcase that ability on their EP. There is so much raw emotion put into every word sung.
I only wish we had more songs from The Tin Man. The EP only provides a glimpse into what kind of music and artistry this band can showcase.
The vocals mesh so well with the rhythm of the guitars, and the beats of the drums. It sounds beautiful and makes such an enjoyable listening experience. I’m really impressed by the range they showcase in just 5 songs. You get your ballads, fast paced beats and mixture of the two in each of the songs. I feel the EP gives a great glimpse of what to expect from this band and the great quality they have to offer.
