I Can't Stop Thinking About It - or Listening to It.
I, like most people, discovered Obadiah Parker from the Hey Ya phenomenon that emerged a while back. That instantly became one of my favorite songs ever. And it still is. When I saw that this was out, I was ecstatic. Mat Weddle is nothing short of amazing and his voice soothes me and instantly puts me in a better mood. The music is fun and vibrant. From the funky second half of "Fall Back" to the horn happy "I Can't Stop Thinking About It" to the famous "Hey Ya", this album does not EVER disappoint. It's rare that you come across an album where every song makes you feel as upbeat as this one does. Buy it. Love it. Live it.
When the Internet brought talent to the world
From a grainy video a friend sent me I was exposed the raw talent of Mat Weddle. Taking pop culture and making it your own and then saying to the world “This is who we are!” is a bold move not many bands would do. Most would toil playing simple sound-a-like covers but with this one song Obadiah Parker has caught the attention of the masses. I bought the album right after the announcement hit my mailbox and it is everything I have come to expect from this rising star. Mat, Jessie, and Daniel inspire and entertain with power, talent, and soul. I cannot say enough about this wonderful album other than I can’t wait to see what’s next!
Coming up NEXT!
Finally, something NEW and FRESH! What a great way to get down and jiggy with the fantasmic arrangement of "Hey Ya". But the greatness doesn't stop there! Matt Weddle lays down some profound lyrics in "Kimberlina" and "Burnt Offerings". The guy has some serious talent behind all the facial fuzz. Who needs a drummer? Not this trio! Jessie Young is no "park-it-in-the-back", girl back-up singer. She is a masterful on the trumpet in "Six or Seven" and her energetic piano/keys add the "carbonation" to this sparkling FRESH beverage called Obadiah Parker! Line up now folks! This band KICKS! More playtime please!
