Album Review: “Ello V Easy” by Tyler Gahn

“Ello V Easy” creates a summery, sunlit sort of atmosphere, one that proves Tyler Gahn to be a storyteller with a real sense of poetry. Over the course of the album, Tyler Gahn draws from a wide variety of styles, from country to pop to folk even a touch of classic rock, all neatly woven together into a blissful whole.


Reminiscent of Jason Mraz’s work, there is something so passionate and full of life throughout the album. Little snapshots of life lived to the fullest emerge over the course of the journey, from thoughts on relationships to simply trying to get through another day. Something about these stories feels quite lived in and real; perhaps it is Tyler Gahn’s emphasis on small details or simply his casual cool vocal delivery. Either way, it results in an imagery that lingers long after the songs have ended.

“Living on the Edge” sets the tone for the album, with wonderful guitar work and a slight nod towards funk. Rhythms have an inviting quality on the downright determined fervor of “Raise Your Voice”, even incorporating a bit of humor into the proceedings. A pastoral spirit defines the laid-back “Message in a Bottle”. Going for a full, rich approach is the classically inclined splendor of “Black Horses” with particularly impressive strings gracing the piece. Stripping things down to the essentials is the intimacy of “Hazel Eyes”. Perfectly bringing everything to a joyous conclusion the giddy “Groove” feels just right.
