ACTING NATURAL: ACTING NATURAL EP
26/11/2017
1967 was the highlight of The Beatles. Exactly half a century later, from New York sounds the same sound over the ocean. What inspires a young trio from Tampa Florida to conquer the world from the big Apple with a nostalgic retrospective? Love for quality music of course.
Three Americans, dressed up with badgers, undeniably fan of the British super band and the London Led Zeppelin, released their first EP last month. Acting Natural shines on this with six authentic pop songs. (For the Americans, of course pure rock & roll.). Literally you should not take the group name ‘Natural Acting’ either. Even the haircut reminds us of John or George.
As you might suspect, Acting Natural catapults itself in the 60′-70 ‘past.
Opener ‘The One’ can be confused with a Beatles song for my part. In ‘Nicole’ they can not hide their American roots. Singing together, elongated end notes and a catchy melody à la Todd Rundgren point to their natural musical behavior. Also in ‘Missed The Train’ is that Liverpool ghost popping up. The later full album will show whether British DNA is ‘acting’.
Acting Natural delivers beautiful work that will delight both young and old. The trio leaves no opportunity to spread their sweet revival message. From hip-hop clubs to hardcore metal venues, positive reactions followed everywhere. Also mine!
Line up:
Eric Carnevale (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Piano, Organ)
James David Maney (Bass, Vocals)
Jesse Leonard (Drummer, Vocals)

Arriving on November 17th is the debut release from singer/songwriter Lindsay Bellows titled “Wake To Dream.” The new 5-song release is a perfect introduction to this new independent artist as you are instantly draw into her sound on the smooth R&B pop of “Slow Steady.” Her voice grabs your attention on the playful delivery of “Wake Up” as the song’s rhythm has a jazz based groove. Her new short release finishes up with the slightly funkier beat of “Wild And Free” and the a capella feel of “Simple Gifts.” To find out more about Lindsay Bellows and her latest release “Wake To Dream,” please visit lindsaybellowsmusic.com.
