A West Way Home

A West Way Home it's not really a band, it's a solo project of Seann Bowe, from Paramore's homeland, Franklin, Tennesse; navigating though the seas of Indie and acoustic; also a couple of his songs have some electronic/ambient taste.
I have to recognize his effort, he recorded and produced all by himself, yet, the good intentions are not all that counts when it comes to music. His song "For My Own Good" reminds me a lot of the first time I heard Stereo Skyline!, unfortunately, in a bad way, it sounds more like a copy than a band in the same style.
His relaxed, acoustic songs are a bit better, at least they sound more original, but, without all the electronic play he made, his voice doesn't sound well, I mean, he's probably a good singer, but he just don't know it yet. He needs to work on his vocals because he screams every once in a while, also, he doesn't hit the right note sometimes.
Despite all this, you might like his music, it's kind of moody, and it's not that bad. After all, if you like it or not it's your decision.
