Asheville Rocker, Andrew Reed, is riding the natural high that comes with the intent to share good vibes throughout his latest album release, ‘If All The World Were Right’. Kicking off with the first track, “Sailed Away”, Andrew lyrically remains grounded in vulnerability as he expresses the reality of his current life with a level of optimism that seeps into listeners bones and settles a rapid mind. The second track, “Cure My Mind”, begins with a simple acoustic guitar opening the doors of perception as Andrew lyrically travels through bouts of dismay that come with the acknowledgement that we as human beings are constantly soaking up stimulation that can lead us to steer clear from embodying our highest self. “Life in the City” is the third track that kicks off with the instrumental feel of a Dave Matthews Band track back in their ‘Under The Table and Dreaming’ days as Andrew lyrically comes to the realization that the glitz and the glam of life in the inner-city serves as a distraction to his life of simplicity. The fourth track, “Putting Things in Order”, slows it down into a blend of solace and good cheer as Andrew figures out what keeps him aligned while figuring out the ingredients to stir into his boiling pot of life.
The title and fifth track, “If All the World Were Right”, showcases a level of idealism as Andrew creates lyrical castles in the sky highlighting the components of what the world would feel and be like if it spun around core values that are laced with integrity, honor and truth.The seventh track, “Where She Goes”, is a romantic spill of reflection as Andrew speaks of a woman who emitted the aura of emerald and topaz and once served as his morning dose of elegance that gave him a ride through his consciousness. The ninth track, “Open Road”, Andrew speaks of the serenity that comes with scenically-rich drives through the other side that also provide ample lessons on patterns that exist beyond the knowledge bubble we as human beings injudiciously operate from prior to experience beyond the known. The eleventh track, “Hourglass”, serves as a slow-burn that resounds with listeners in a human way as Andrew faces being lost in transit over a melancholic yearning for peace. Closing out with “All the World is Right (Poem)”, Andrew shares a potent level of sensitivity over a lyrically revealing ode to clarity and inner righteousness.
‘If All The World Were Right’ is the perfect album for traveling down the long road of contemplation. If you’re a fan of fellow artists such as Dave Matthews Band, Grateful Dead and Jack Johnson, then check out with Andrew Reed has to offer on Soundcloud.
