“Sweet and psychedelic, stormy and intimate”

Strong writing and excellent production always makes for a great recording. Cheyenne Mize seems to have the recipe perfected here with her latest release, Among the Grey.

The LP is very reminiscent, yet with a fresh touch, of a collection of pop-songs that are soulful with a psychedelic 1960s atmosphere.

There is something special about the hypnotic tone and pacing throughout. The tracks are sewn together beautifully by Mize’s engaging and sweet voice with songs that display a subtle hint of Jim Morrison’s poetic structure and music of The Doors.

Mize’s tone and melodic arrangements engulf you; the spacious ambience of songs such as “Wouldn’t Go Back,” a somber ballad, and the record’s best track “As It Comes,” are indeed touching and reflective. Each song, however, delivers a genuine emotion. “Raymaker” is expertly woven “in the mix,” allowing the record to send your mood to a quiet state, and a journey of a soft lullaby in a nostalgic sense. Spacious, soft, soothing guitars nicely complement Mize’s airy, sultry vocals.

There is no “grey” area here. Cheyenne Mize’s spectacular collection is among those you should acquaint yourself with; this comes highly recommended.
