CD REVIEW: Andrew Hoover "Chances, Stances, And Romances"

Andrew Hoover is a breath of fresh air in the music industry. His debut full length album is one of the most refreshing and inventive albums to come out this year. From start to finish the album is full of well crafted songwriting, stellar production, and some of the coolest musical arrangements found in this style of music. Andrew has an incredibly soulful voice and is an outstanding guitar player as well. He brings elements of John Mayer mixed with elements of John Legend to life in his own unique way. His closest musical comparison is possibly Kyle Riabko, but Hoover's music certainly stands alone. The best tracks on the disc are "Lie To Me," "Come On." and "Saturday," but the entire album, from start to finish, is incredible. Andrew Hoover has brought soul back to the world of the singer/songwriter.
