Like a refreshing breeze of melodic wonder, A.J Gatz writes songs that will be floating around your head for days. Currently residing in Paris, The A.J Gatz Project have recently released Volume 2 of the album Who Is A.J Gatz?
The album was produced by A.J Gatz and friend Arthur D.B and what is apparent from all the songs on the album is the bold and intelligent songwriting skills that Gatz possesses. A great example of this is “Blame” with a simple but effective arrangement that supports the vocal and piano melodies perfectly.
But the track that particularly resonates with me is “How Long”. With a stunningly, gleaming guitar line that, from the intro, really sets the feel for the track. To be later joined by Rhodes-style keys and discreet horn sounds to add subtle textures to create a candescent flow.
