Album Review

After scoring with the John Mayer-esque pop of "Amazing" and the upbeat country of "Georgia Clay," Josh Kelley has decided it's time he bared his soul to us all. For his eighth album (and first for Sugar Hill), 2016's New Lane Road, Kelley has taken a detour into singer/songwriter territory. The album delivers a dozen personal songs about love and family with a feel that's half-Nashville and half-Laurel Canyon. Kelley has said that he was listening to a lot of vintage Eagles and Jackson Browne material while recording the album, and it's not hard to hear the influences. Kelley even soaks up traces of Browne's vocal inflections on tracks like "Call It What It Is" and "I'll Be Standing Tall." If this music favors Kelley's country side, the mood is laid-back and contemplative. Most of the time, Kelley has relationships on his mind. "It's Your Move" and "Call It What It Is" don't make such things sound easy, but "The Best of Me" and "Cowboy Love Song" suggest it's all worthwhile. "Take It on Back" shows the man loves soul music, and he cuts a pretty convincing groove with the goofball funk of "Anywhere You Wanna Go." Many of the songs on New Lane Road cover familiar lyrical tropes, but Kelley brings a warmth and sincerity to this music that's honest and effective. And Kelley certainly sounds more comfortable singing about the glories of married life than he did trying to fit into the boundaries of mainstream country. New Lane Road is a few steps short of a triumph for Josh Kelley. But it's strong and well-crafted enough to sound like he's found a direction that works for him, and this ranks with the singer and songwriter's best work.

Customer Reviews

Great Arist

I love the heart and soul in his voice. been a fan for many years. this is yet another great work of art from a great artist. Way to go Josh

Your best album yet

I have waited too long Josh for another album from you but that pain no longer matters because you have delivered an incredible body of work. I can't pick a favorite yet! Anywhere You Want to Go grabbed me right away because it was easy to picture you in studio bopping away to it, adding all the layers that make it fantastic. Only God Can Stop Her Now is so heartfelt and your voice has never been better. Thank you for climbing out of your studio 'hole' holding this!!!

New Lane Road

Josh Kelley's heart and soul comes through in his music and lyrics in this song, can certainly see why he chose to name the album the same. Brought tears to my eyes as I feel so passionate about our homeland as well as my own oh so sweet home. My new anthem song, thank you, Josh, for this amazing song.
