Where I Am
Aaron Michum starts his debut with a cover of a little known Dylan song, but the rest is all his own. His songs are intelligently written and he has a breezy style that's reminiscent of David gray and Damien Rice.
"I'm Not Going To Die" sees him adding Beatlesy touches to a neat lyric. "Beautiful Crazy" is a nice song in the confessional vein, Mitchum's soft delivery staying close to the aforementioned Gray. The title song is an honest mediation on life, love and all that really matters. It's sensitive and acoustic and done
very well indeed. "Heartache" is beautiful and sad, Micthum remanding on lost love and new possibilities.
His new album is a real treat, and he's a fine new voice.
