Immediately, this well-traveled troubadour gets our attention with a gruff vocal style whose undertone says, “I’ve lived it, I’ve been there.” And Overbey has the songcraft to turn his anecdotes and observations into engaging songs that are by turns melodically hooky and lyrically genuine. “The California Kid” is a mid-tempo autobiographical tune wherein the artist presents his warts-and-all resume. The laid-back “I’m In Love Again” is our favorite, a song about the mystery of attraction––a hopeless romantic’s willingness to repeat the same wonderful mistakes. We feel this song particularly could draw interest from a marquee performer who could make it his own.
