Crystal Ball EP by Weatherstar (Self released EP)
Weatherstar is the solo project of Cameron Walker, an extremely talented and resourceful singer/songwriter based out of the Southport, CT area. In 2009, Weatherstar gained a good deal of attention with the well received Planes Oceans & Symphonies EP (also known as Self-Titled) followed by an excellent three song Acoustic collection in 2010. Now in the year 2011, Walker finds himself represented by the same management group who handles the careers of national artists such as Never Shout Never and The Ready Set. And judging by what’s heard of Weatherstar’s latest EP Crystal Ball, one can only predict massive success for the likes of Cameron Walker.
The two songs found within Weatherstar’s latest EP exude a good deal of hit single potential. Title track Crystal Ball is wildly infectious – with a joyous melody and upbeat lyrics that will remain embedded within your head long after the song spins to an end. Definitely a tune one can imagine hearing on the radio airwaves all across the nation.
Can’t Get Away From U is the second track, another dazzling pop and roll song with soaring choruses and lyrics that you’ll instantly commit to memory. Mischievous and catchy as hell, this tune as well as the title cut clearly shows Walker possesses a brilliant knack for writing pop song perfection.
Definitely a step forward from the previous recordings, the Crystal Ball EP by Weatherstar shows an artist on the verge of the big time. This could be the last recording Cameron Walker releases on his own, because he’ll probably wind up being signed to a reputable label by the time we hear from him again.
Long time Weatherstar fans are well aware of how talented Cameron Walker is, and songs such as Crystal Ball and Can’t Get Away From U will only expand the fan base tenfold. If you enjoy wondrous pop songs that will jangle in your brain and get your toes tapping, be sure to check into Weatherstar and discover what will surely be your next favorite band.
In addition to Cameron Walker, the Weatherstar experience is rhythmically enhanced by Billy Toti on drums.
