He's got soul...

"This is a great CD. Its a tasteful mix of soul, rock, and folk - imagine if Jack Johnson and Lenny Kravitz had a baby. I'm new to Tyrone and his style is definitely refreshing."

"I have been going to see Tyrone play locally in California now for about 3 years in coffee shops, in the busy walkway of a local outdoor mall, and in venues with 2000 people. No matter where he plays he gives the same amount of passion in every performance. He is an extremely talented and gifted singer and songwriter. I, and many of his fans, have seen him blossum into a bon-a-fide star. Mark my words, he will be big.
Now, this cd is his first on a major label, but you can buy his prior cds and dvd at his shows.
Buy this cd and you will discover a great new artist who will blow your socks off with his incredible voice, songwriting, and passion. His music is a combination of soul, rock, pop, and folk. It is hard to classify, but he just simply sounds great. He is also one of the nicest human beings I have ever met. [...] Buy it, you won't be sorry."

"The first cut on this CD, "What are we fighting for" was what I heard first on a local indie channel here. I was interested enough to check it out on iTunes. Big surprise, I liked most of the cuts and ordered the whole CD from Amazon.

"What are we fighting for" is pretty self explanatory, but this up-beat anti-war anthem deserves more than just another chalk mark towards artists who are weighing in for peace. The ending gospel chorus "I had a dream.." will get you up singing.

There've been a lot of songs about loving someone the way they are, but Wells takes that theme and re-addresses it one more time with "Baby Don't You Change". It's still about a pretty face, but it's a strong love ballad and if I were a guy, I'd add this to my 'get out of trouble with the girlfriend' playlist.

"Jealous Man" is about a man behind bars warnings others away from his girl. He's got two things to tell you about his girl, "one, leave her alone" and "two, leave her alone." This one's just plain hair-raising.

"Looking at her Face" compares a lover's face to a sunset and it's just glorious. This is a sweet love ballad and almost a shock after "Jealous Man."

Yes, this is a wide variety of well-done music and it's very much worth listening to. Give Tyrone Wells a listen. He's hard to categorize, but well worth the time to hear."
