It’s not likely that you’ve missed hearing “Superman” or “100 Years” playing on the radio, but if you’ve never heard the voice of John Ondrasik, a.k.a Five For Fighting, now is the time to remedy that. In his soon to be released album, Slice, John’s soothing voice tells a story of American life – a slice, if you will, of experiences and sentiments.
Other than hearing a few tracks on the radio, I’ve never really listened to Five For Fighting. I do love listening to new music though, so when I was given a chance by One2One Network to review an advance copy of Slice, I jumped on it.
After giving the album a quick listen, I couldn’t believe that I had never paid more attention to Five For Fighting. Between John’s smooth voice, the amazing melodies, and thoughtful lyrics, I was immediately hooked. Slice has been on heavy rotation for the last several days and I expect it will be for quite some time.
John will also be hitting the road in October with An Acoustic Evening With Five For Fighting. He’ll be at the Midland in Kansas City on November 20th (anyone want to buy me tickets?). Other dates and locations are listed on his site, www.fiveforfighting.com. In the meantime, you can check out the video for the single “Chances” on YouTube.
