“In the Beginning”
By Leslie Snyder
Shadows of doubt hover over Los Angeles, California. These shadows come from an independent solo artist and electronic/urban rock producer named Woodrowgerber. Woodrowgerber sounds similar to Queen and The Verve with their sharp rock melodies and somewhat ominous lyrics, along with a heavy dose of “eerie” keyboards throughout the entire debut CD. Woodrowgerber released his debut CD “In the Beginning” on February 26, 2013 featuring thirteen heart wrenching tracks that are about heartache, doubt, and uncertainty.
The lonely journey begins with the first track “You don’t know.” This track has a rather noisy introduction featuring “stomping” and a “hoarse” harmonica, along with “gritty” vocals and “screeching” rock melodies. This track is a heartbreaking tale about a man who is tired of his girlfriend treating him badly. Meanwhile, uncertainty lingers in the second track “Lights in the Sky.” This track features “moaning” vocals and “brooding” rock melodies. This track is an ominous tale about a man who thinks the world is coming to an end because he sees stars in the sky. The man is panic stricken for no apparent reason.
Finally, the lonely journey ends under a shadow of doubt in the third track “In the Beginning.” This track features “robotic” vocals and “rustic” rock melodies. This track is filled with anxiety from a man who was worried that his girlfriend was no longer in love with him. However, the anxious man’s girlfriend is in love with him. So, the anxious man was worried over absolutely nothing.
Woodrowgerber brings dark electronic/urban rock back to the forefront. The CD “In the Beginning” will send chills up a person’s spine. Woodrowgerber is a superb independent solo artist who deserves to be heard.
