PressWhere The Heart Is Review
California songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kurt Mahoney has some clever lyrics that draw folks into charming songs like "Jimmy Stewart's Wings." His cross-bending genre's subtle instrumental shadings don't always align with his vocal styling, but his original acoustic folk, balladry and blues-flavored narratives offer evocative moments such as when he sings about "The Most Beautiful Girl" or asks "Who's Gonna Be Your Baby." Tapping into the blues, "Workin' On My Attitude" establishes a nice no-frills melodic riff...I commend him for being able to successfully cover a great deal of cross-genre music. Mahoney's low-key telling has introspective feelings that come across like musical correspondence addressed to "Dear Grandpa," "Oh Mama," or "Hey Little Girl." We learn where Kurt Mahoney's heart is .... it's with all those people who have loved, supported, and inspired him during life's inward and outward journeys.
