Enter Maryland based singer-songwriter Ty Ford who released his 5 track EP back in 2009 entitled Watermelon Time. On the upside, you can expect 5 vintage pieces that champion high quality bluesy folk and topics canvassed against an Americana backdrop. Some songs have an almost earthy sound to them while others deliver kick-ass jump jive musical theatrics.

The arrangements are dynamic, ethereal, cathartic enough, yet vintage in their own right. Ninety seconds into the 3rd Track Sweet Low two of the first things crossing my mind were: 1) How undeniably truthful and honest this music sounds, and (2) why the heck havent I heard of Ty Ford yet? But lets not get to ahead of ourselves.

Track 1 Look Ma Im Flyin is a kind of a beautiful intro piece offering an almost clairvoyant acoustic backdrop that makes a great first impression but has no vocals. This leads you head first into impassioned How Dear You are to Me. The first 3 tracks really capture a good writers touch and players finesse. The thing I like about Swing Low to me is an intellectual affirmation of sorts that seems to stay with you long after the piece has run it course. The EP as a whole does a nice job at offering a wide variety of playing styles; some slow, some fast, some hard some not to hard. All tracks are a welcomed return of good alternative folk and again a touch of singer/songwriter powerful in the 70 and 80s. Also present: powerful elements of todays crossover singer/songwriter/pop genera.

My favorite tracks are the ones that really deliver full tilt goodness Swing Low and Existential Boogie.

Ford reminds me of Johnny Cash, Steve Earle, John Hiatt, Justin Townes Earle, Chris Smither, Levon Helm, Bruce Cockburn, Rodney Crowell and Leon Russell.

I think these are the only tracks where Ford is backed up band-wise. Up front Ford brings a raspy almost a Johnny Cash-ish vocal delivery. His melodic phrasing is right on the money and he has an effective visual as well. Why does he keep reminding me of Johnny Cash? Bring in a combination of good playing, solid heartfelt vocals, top flight production value, and you come away understanding why many are talking about Ford in certain parts of Maryland. All pieces flow like a stream so nicely, almost masterfully. Some songs peak with sheer excitement and intensity, while others withdraw into quiet chilled-out seclusion. I found this to be a very cool trait of Ford. CD is a bit bipolar in that respect. The lyrical content provides inspirational subject matter, and potent topics for todays thinking fan. All songs are straight from the heart.

Some would say I''m crazy for giving this guy 10 star review I dont think so. This EP is better than 90% of the stuff I get on a daily basis. Whereas most musical production these days are like a cup of Raman Noodles, "Watermelon Time is like a bowl of seasoned Escargot with garlic butter served with a splash of fine cognac. "Watermelon Time captures a bit of lighting in a bottle and does a marvelous job of extolling rocking-blues energy via a strong 5 track EP known as Watermelon Time.
