Editors’ Notes

This Canadian sextet put matters of the heart first and foremost on this likeable if undemanding entry into the country-pop sweepstakes. Emerson Drive’s sound goes easy on the twang factor, taking more than a few cues from co-producer Richard Marx’s ‘80s-era hits. Though Pat Allingham’s fiddle licks add a down-home touch, the arrangements lean as much towards light rock and R&B as anything countrified. Vocals are the band’s big drawing card, with lead singer Brad Mates projecting a tender yet masculine presence. Seamless harmonies lift the choruses on “Fall Into Me,””Say My Name,””Light of Day” and similar tunes. From flirtation (“Looking Over My Shoulder”) to infatuation (“I Should Be Sleeping”) and devotion (“Only God (Could Stop Me Loving You)”), the songs offer a positive spin on romance. There are some steamy moments, such as Mates’ growl-tinged delivery on “Hollywood Kiss.” Emerson Drive is consistently tuneful and smoothly played, the perfect accompaniment for a trip down lover’s lane.

This is a great album. I heard Moments on the radio and I liked it so i decided to go on and see what other songs they had. I'll tell the truth when I say i didn't expect any to be very good but i was suprised when I was having trouble deciding what album to get. I'd recommend this album to anyone.

After everyone came on board, they chose the name 12 Gauge, refurbished a rickety old school bus, and began gigging throughout Canada. Eventually guitarist Danick Dupelle and drummer Mike Melocon joined up, and new manager Gerry Leiske sent the young sextet out on the road...
