Right away the quality production on singer-guitarist Tawmy’s recordings makes everything snap, so clear and bright. His standout tune is the growling blues-rocker “Know Where To Run” with its catchy hook, terrific drum tone and a fusilade of guitar licks that are frequent and fiery. What’s cool about the vocals is the apparent use of doubling, using the lead singer’s high pitch and low pitch in an effective blend. The optimistic “Brand New Day” has the same brand of fluid guitar fills in a song that’s laidback and low-key. Tawmy effectively shifts from blues-rock to pop-rock for “Will I” whose sweet n’ soft demeanor and confessional tone (“I’ve done stupid things...”) conveys a message of maturity.
