Cut You In

2008, Independent

Rating: 3/5

Ben G is a young singer/guitarist that is creating a buzz on the Ontario scene. His debut EP is getting rave reviews and magazines and media are talking about his music in quite the favorable light. After one listen it is clear to see why.

The debut 5 song E.P. features some great blues based guitar playing from this young guitarist. The disc kicks off with “Addiction” which is an upbeat rock song with great harmonies and a foot tapping beat. It is a blues based power pop rock song that will satisfy. The vocals are smooth and the guitar gels well with it with a slight bit of fuzz. The title track; “Cut You In” starts off mellow then kicks in with more of the same power pop with an edge. As with these 2 selections the remaining trio don’t stagger too far from this formula. Why mess with a good thing?

Not overly original but quite enjoyable to listen to. Ben’s voice is easy on the ears and the guitar playing is clean and melodic.
