The new project features “Sandy,” a hit for Ronny and the Daytonas, a surf/hot-rod music group whose hits included “GTO” as well as “Sandy.” The surf portion of the CD contains songs that are unique in that they focus on the Panhandle region of Fla. where so many Southeasterners vacation.

Jason White – The Longing

In Uncategorized on March 20, 2012 at 5:08 pm

The Longing is a stunning ten-song cycle that explores the longings and vagaries of the human heart. It begins with the gospel-tinged “For The Freeway Home” and the jaunty, loping title track, continues through the cinematic “Waitress” and Tin Pan Alley-like valentine “Perfect Stranger,” then winds down with the French-flavored “Belle Histoire d’Amour” and the breezy but black humor of “California.” With White’s strong acoustic guitar work and honey-on-sandpaper voice front and center, the collection offers up a melodic warmth that recalls 70s-era FM radio titans Elton John, Bread and The Eagles, while still sounding contemporary and completely fresh.
