The singer and songwriter known as Gasner The Artist has released his latest self-titled Country album, “Gasner The Artist”, which has been proudly released independently, with the support of Belak Consulting music company. Raised on R&B and Motown legends, while being inspired by country stars, when you hear Gasner The Artist sing, it is undoubtedly him, no one else sounds like this at all in Country. He has such a distinctive vocal and it has such a warm, friendly, rich and soulful tone that he could sing the phone book and you would be impressed. After listening to the album a number of times, I’ve got to say that the production has surrounded the singer with sonic elements that focuses on his strengths, and at the same time, gives radio something fresh and exciting to play.
Gasner The Artist’s easygoing, positive personality permeates the album. His vocals are authentic Country Soul and R&B, while the band complements his voice rather than overtake it. The album, “Gasner The Artist” is much more than a collection of great songs done well.
This is an album that should be considered as a whole. Its message is consistent and timely, from the first song to the last. From when the album opens with the frisky and romantic groove of “Re-up”, Gasner The Artist showcases his storytelling skills. He takes his lessons in life and love, and turns them into catchy songs with his rugged, soulful twang.
Sonically speaking, Gasner The Artist mixes in an emotional gospel-tinged twist, on sadder songs, like “Last Song About You”, which drips with hurt and sorrow, like the most memorable weepers of our time. The track also showcases some beautifully layered backing harmonies.
The album’s third track, “Drankin About You” is one of the most captivating songs in Gasner The Artist’s repertoire. The minute he sings the mid-tempo ballad, it shines a light on his buttery rich baritone’s best qualities. The emotive nature to his voice is what gives Gasner The Artist his unique connection to audiences.
The longer Gasner The Artist keeps it slow and soulful, the harder it will be for you to resist his vocal charms. So “Wear Her Dress” tells yet another sentimental narrative, which too, showcases the nuances and strengths of the singer’s stunning vocal cords on a slow-burner.
Gasner The Artist is an easy going, charming performer who can light up a room with his voice, especially when he is riding a hip-swaying groove like “Same Old 2 Step”. There is also an intensity to his performance on “Let Me” which only the very best artists in any genre are able to achieve. When Gasner The Artist sings this style of song it really feels like he is in the room with you.
Gasner The Artist’s vocals are simply superb on “Naked”, driving it forward with style, power and panache. The vivid use of the lyrics and the cadence of words, to create a resonating melody are a feature of this song, and an indication that we are listening to a very special performance here.
A big beat thumps behind Gasner The Artist’s strong, clear vocals and lyrical wisdom. There is something of an every-man quality about him, the epitome of a guy from just outside Nashville, Tennessee – a polite, well-mannered man, eager to please.
Gasner The Artist has packed this album full of brilliance, depth, emotion and entertainment. There is no filler, no wasted songs, nothing is done under par. Every song tells a story and every lyric looks toward living life and love, in a better, bigger, and bolder way. There can be no doubt that this recording is poised to blow everything else in its category right out of the water.
