( Self - released / Hemifran ) 2012.
Americana / roots music - USA
JJ Schultz is a Wisconsin born artist, but he has been working in San Francisco for many years now. He discographically
debuted with " Bustin' Outa Town" in 2004, followed by " Something To Me " ( 2005 ) and " Travelling Sons " ( 2007 ). His
actuelle offering is " Carolina", a full-length with 8 tracks in. With minnimal following back-up instrumentations, Mr. Schultz
deliver a portion of americana/roots variants, with strong songwritings, added with emotionally driven lyrical pastiche. He write
about love, sadness and passion, creating a emotional atmosphere, and specific mood. Some reviewers used to compare a
mentioned specific atmosphere with Springsteen's " Nebraska" , and to be honest some similiarities are present, but more in
also mentioned ambiental/atmospheric methods of exposure, than in author's views. JJ Schultz is a serious author, and " Carolina"
as a album offer enough pleasent moments...
