Jon RodgersExpression - The Many Sides of JonRodgersExpression JonRodgersExpression does it all both behind the scenes and in front of the mic. “Spain” sets a beautiful atmosphere thanks to the soul in the vocals, and then like a burst of lightning – BAM! The music and the vocals speed up. It’s all quite musical theater and turns into a true performance. “Stop Loving You” isn’t quite like that; it’s a more serious song. It’s that feeling when you’re in love and it won’t stop — no matter what. The love will always be there.”Been on This Road too Long” has more of a southern soul vibe to it. It’s one of those songs where you hear; you feel every word being sung. It’s the kind of music all ages can appreciate. With “Rosebud,” it’s more for the older folks who grew up in the 70′s. Lastly, “Frendz” flips everything you’ve come to know about JonRodgersExpression on its side. It’s upbeat and energetic to the point that you think it’s going to come on when you’re on the dance floor. If you’re into musicians who can change with the flip of a switch but remain skilled when doing so, check out JonRodgersExpression. (http://www.reverbnation.com/jonrodgersexpression)
