"Show" is just the beginning for Jimmy Tierney

While I might be a little biased, considering I play guitar on one of the tracks and because I've been a friend of Jimmy Tierney's for years and watched him grow, I can still give a fairly objective review of this piece of work. Tierney has a great voice, his songwriting craft is strong and intentional, and as an instrumentalist, he shines.

Opening with "Go," the catchy pop tune that travels out of your car speakers and reverberates around in your head as you go about your day, Tierney's ability to deliver a hook is evident right from the get-go. The second, and title track, "Show," is packaged with a bow and ready to be delivered to the radio station, and it sounds like it could've been on John Mayer's first album, which is a huge compliment. "Making A Spaceship" begins to show the depth that Tierney has in his music; he's not all radio-pop after all, he's got some interesting style to bring to the table and incorporate throughout songs that don't run into each other, but instead complement each other like a bouquet of different flowers. "I Love You, Goodbye" is a touching and catchy ballad that's got a great hook, and deals with the end of a relationship. "Sheep To Count On" is another interesting tune that's bound to make you come back for seconds and thirds, and has some great piano and keyboard work. "2-1=1" lightens up the mood on "Show," featuring David Rothlein crooning about stealing kidneys, and asking for your acceptance of his choice of a career. "Blind" is another radio-friendly pop tune with a catchy hook. "Break-up Song" features vocalist Rachel Moriarty, and as you quickly find out, Tierney and Moriarty's voices are meant to sing together, as their voices together drive this mellow, acoustic song home. "I Get Things Wrong (A Cappella)" showcases Tierney's skill for harmonization and beatboxing, and takes a wonderfully-written song to a new format, that some people may be surprised with. "Cameron (Instrumental)" is a break from vocals, and is a display of the fact that Tierney's not here solely to sing, he's a phenomenal instrumentalist as well, and "Cameron" is full of interesting time signatures underneath beautiful melodies and harmonies. To finish the journey, Tierney offers you "Stars (Live)," an original song that's got catchy melodies and great lyrics, but also has great piano work.

All in all, Jimmy Tierney's debut offering "Show" takes you on an adventure through pop, radio friendly songs, to interesting melodic arrangements, to a cappella, to instrumental, and right back to a piano ballad, which may be Tierney's greatest strength. With such a variety of styles, it really makes you wonder what's to come on his next album, but in the meantime, you'll be happy to enjoy these 11 gems. If you like John Mayer, Ben Folds, or Billy Joel, "Show" is right up your alley, and if you don't, check it out anyways; you might be surprised.
