With a voice like “a country music Chris Martin” (Coldplay), Reed Waddle projects a spirit that is smooth and easy to like, especially when he’s giving voice to such uplifting, inspirational originals as “Too Bright To Fade Away,” which we could definitely imagine on Americana radio playlists. Waddle brings a bright, modern twang––and gets to his chorus quickly––on “Caroline,” another song that oozes with humanity. As expertly as those songs are arranged and recorded, Waddle and company raise it up a notch on “Castle Wall,” enveloping the song in a wide, mysterious well of reverb in an inspirational story about overcoming depression. Reed Waddle’s harmonic, uplifting vibes are hard to resist.
