Something About You (ft. Jerry Manfredi) by Gary Dranow: Review
“Something About You” is a brilliant melodic piece by bluesman Gary Dranow. I’ve been enthralled by the artist thus far, such as the emotionally gripping “Destiny Road”, and this time around his epic ode continues. “Something About You” follows the tropes of classic rock, with a dash of blues. Led by a powerful voice at the helm and smooth guitar lines drawing us in, who’s up for another round of Gary’s magic?
The music of Gary Dranow is reminiscent of an old western flick and “Something About You” is no stranger to that aspect. The singer’s flow pertains to a light gravelly voice that has equal amounts of blues and wild-west blended into it. Apart from that, buttery guitar instrumentation unfolds on this tune and the vibe is extremely resonant. The rhythm structure had further surprises, such as the introduction of synth pieces which gave it a vintage outfit. Eventually, in the track’s crescendo a gripping solo entered the premise, and facets of grandeur were immediately felt.
“Something About You” is truly a song filled with nostalgic elements. The “cowboy era” is a prominent part of gaming and cinema culture that has grabbed my attention for decades now. Doing so, allowed me to appreciate the music of yesteryear, and modern artists that take the initiative to compose melodies as such. With that being said hearing Something About You’s blues rock aura was incredibly moving and I insist that you share this piece of music with enthusiasts all around!
