Compare Liana Conway to Taylor Swift – Album Review
I really don’t want
to compare Liana Conway to Taylor Swift. The similarities are there,
they’re young, talented, singer song writing females in the
country music genre. The comparisons begin and end there. Taylor Swift’s
music is more in the pop side of country while Liana Conway is more
on the bluesy side of country. I prefer Conway, not because I have
to for this review, but because I prefer the bluesier side of country
music to the pop side. I prefer the bluesier side of all music to
the pop side. That said, my 4 year old prefers Taylor Swift, so it’s
Liana Conway is great with words. She can sing about some of the simplest
things and make it sound poetic, important and credible. The music
is great too, but it’s the words that will win you over and
she’s only 20 years old. Everything about Liana Conway is real
and authentic. She’s pretty, but not over the top to the point
where she looks fake. Her voice is perfect for what she does. She
doesn’t have crazy range that distracts from the song and she
doesn’t need auto tune. Her songs are great, they are easy on
the ears, but they’re not over the top cheesy pop song that
are popular today but forgotten tomorrow. Conway is the type of artist
that could have a long and healthy career. Her songs are timeless;
they could exist in any generation of country music.
Liana is the real deal. If you’re into singer songwriters, then
I think you should give Liana Conway’s new album “Sunrise”
a chance. It was released this week, so definitely go check it out.
I’ll end this review with a quote from Liana herself, “The
most important thing for me is to be real…This is who I am.
This is what I look like. This is how I feel...As long as I’m
happy, I’ll consider myself successful.”
