iTunes Review

Where Secondhand Serenade's debut album Awake showed how much John Veseley could do with just acoustic guitars and otherworldly vocal gymnastics, his second album is more fleshed out with a full band and formal sounding orchestration — though his skyward soaring singing remains prominent. Veseley introduces A Twist In My Story with those gorgeously textured vocals breathing life into the hyper-sentimental "Like A Knife," but what comes off as more interesting is hearing how the stripped down "Your Call" and "Maybe" from Awake pan out here — redone, upgraded and fully arranged with ample help from renowned producers Danny Lohner of Nine Inch Nails fame and Butch Walker who has worked with the likes of All American Rejects, Avril Lavigne, Fall Out Boy, Lindsay Lohan, The Donnas and Hot Hot Heat (amongst many others). Fans of Dashboard Confessional and Five For Fighting will find a stirring familiarity in songs like the piano-heavy power ballad "Fall For You" and the haunting "Your Call", and the exclusive bonus track "Tested And True" hints at a young man finally finding an old soul within, and thus beginning to influence himself.

Customer Reviews

its pretty flippin sweet.

i have the amazing opportunity, to go on tour with this guy. He is amazing, this album is definately a step up. I can't wait, to see this tour and all its happenings, this tour will unfold who he is as an artist. You definately need to buy this album, support him even if you dont like his music, just support him. #7 album on itunes is an amazing opportunity not many bands get to experience, especially with performances on talk shows such as Conan o'brien, and others. You need to keep tabs on this guy, because within the next year this guy will explode and become a major record label artist!

Amazing Album

I haven't heard a CD as good as this in a long time. I'm really impressed. Definitely worth every penny.

Much like Five for Fighting or Dashboard Confessional, Secondhand Serenade is the project name for a solo artist, singer/songwriter John Vesely. Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area in a musical family that included his professional jazz musician father, Vesely spent a number of years playing bass in local bands before picking up the acoustic guitar and refocusing his attention on composing original material. Rather than releasing the new material under his name, Vesely chose to group them under...
