Welcome back to another wonderful review here on the best indie music website on the planet! JJ McGuigan is a singer/songwriter from Kansas and he has a new song called “In All Honesty” and I’m going to tell you what I’m feeling about it. JJ discovered a passion for music early in life and around college started playing guitar. He attended Full Sail University to help him with his desire to pursue music.
JJ McGuigan – In All Honesty
Well, in all honesty…I’m excited to hear his next project. I know Dave and I joke about this in our livestream series, but it’s true when we say this. When we hear promising talent, we look forward to more refined music in future releases. I can tell JJ is an honest and gifted guy trying to make some honest music and I give him credit for that. For me though the song itself has missed the mark slightly. Sound production and quality? Awesome! Guitar playing? Great! Singing? Ok! Overall? I’d have to give this one a 6 out of 10. Now, remember this is my personal opinion. Also, I haven’t listened to his other music, just this song…
Don’t get me wrong, JJ is a talented guy for sure! His voice holds its own and as I said before the production is awesome. I guess my only real critique is that the tune is melodically a bit boring. I couldn’t discern a chorus or a bridge but just a droning acoustic guitar and 3 chords. Sometimes this works, but not often. The song is short and sweet so I didn’t lose focus, but it was just sort of flat-line for me. Anyone who is into the darker side of alternative will definitely appreciate the music of JJ McGuigan.
