Jeff Laine
Long Way To Go
Jeff Laine Music

I wish I could say a cliché phrase like, “the music speaks for itself.” It does! But I can’t leave it at that. Jeff Laine has renamed the songwriting book for songwriters; it’s called Long Way To Go. This album stands out, and I have a good feeling about this guy. Other than the fact that he HAS played with everybody (and their dog) at some point or another, he’s got a natural energy in his songs that keep you driving, or keep you from touching your CD player…let it spin!

I heard influence from a few of the people he has played with. There were sounds of Johnny Cash, Dylan, Nelson, and Chris Rea. At the same time, I could sense a real direction of his personal flavor. A very well written and produced album! It's nice to hear roots of true songwriting still alive. Don’t be surprised if you see this album listened to by people of all ages. If you’re a singer-songwriter, you have to check this out. It’ll make you want to write again!

Favorite Track: 1, “Long Way To Go”
