Bring You Back by Brett Eldredge

Debut efforts can be of the hit-and-miss variety, mostly due to the lack of song quality rather than the vocal proficiency of the artist. On this maiden voyage, however, you get the vocal prowess along with solid material, mostly written by Brett himself.

Brett delivers the goods with a much more soulful feel than might be expected from his current hit, “Don’t Ya,” which is included here. At certain points, particularly on “Waited Too Long” and the title tune, there’s an almost Travis Tritt-like quality to his voice, while the fun-loving “Tell Me Where to Park” allows him room to use his falsetto to brief but memorable effect.

Certainly, a few songs travel down the often-trod pavement of small-town odes and wild country loving. But never do they sound contrived or overly sentimental, due mainly to Brett’s heartfelt delivery.

But he also writes from the heart, with “Signs” coming through as one of the more picturesque stories about rural life heard in some time. All you gotta do is read the signs, the song declares, if you want to know what’s going down in a small town.

A couple tunes, “On and On” (a prophetic title, for sure) and “Beat of the Music,” seem ordinary and almost expendable. But on the full scale, Bring You Back will have you wanting more from a promising new artist.
