Jonathan Tyler & the Northern Lights
Unlike the rock that has dominated the airwaves as of late, Jonathan Tyler & the Northern Lights' Hot Trottin' mixes all the key styles that originally gave rise to the music: blues, soul, gospel; etc. However, rather than overwhelming listeners, the Dallas-based band somehow pulls it off effortlessly. Faster songs like "Gypsy Woman," "She's from the Other Side" and "Slow Train" showcase both Tyler's voice and his band's musical talents, while the slower tracks ("Sunshine," "Time for Love," "She Wears a Smile") allow his songwriting abilities to shine. To put it plainly, Jonathan Tyler has got soul, and those Northern Lights of his are covered in rock and roll funk.
