What We Want, What We Get
(Razor & Tie)
FOR FANS OF: Matt Wertz, Jon McLaughlin,
Having fraternized the college music circuit
nearly ten years ago with his charming
lyrical chops and memorable melodies, one
of Nashville’s favorite singer/songwriters,
Dave Barnes, is maturing into a full-ﬂ edge
pop artist with What We Want, What We Get.
Fusing radio-friendly ﬂ air and thoughtful
word rhymes with production as sensitive
to his early 30’s peer group as his collegiate
constituency, Barnes creates his most
accessible project to date. And though his
lighthearted take on love will always appeal
to a younger demographic, Barnes has
morphed from a wordsmith wonderkid into a
competent commercial artist with a veritable
foothold in extended musical markets.

Times Like These (Daywind Records)
FOR FANS OF: Rascal Flatts, Emerson Drive
This seems the perfect Nashville record.
After all, the foundation Music City, U.S.A.
is built upon—the Country and Christian
music markets and the sheen production
commonly associated with both genres—
glosses over the entire affair on Austins
Bridge’s Times Like These. Rascal Flatts’ Jay
DeMarcus handles production and polishes
the already slick melodies and harmonies to
a clean shine.
