Each recording by Chris St. John shines with that special sauce that Nashville personnel are known for. And his songs ain’t bad, neither, especially for a well-seasoned audience who appreciate the artist’s soundalike quality to ‘70s heroes. Paul Simon’s Graceland period comes to mind when we hear “Hey, Siri,” St. John’s brisk, clever (borderline silly) put-down of our modern tech-based lives. The artist’s voice brings a deeper, more confidential (and James Taylor-like) tone on his best tune, “My Sunrise,” a sweet love song whose great arrangement includes a string section with a standout call-and-response violin. “Look for Me” conveys a soothing vibe and mature, relateable sentiments. Film/TV folks will want to take a listen.
