Ramin Down South (Music Thoughts: The Road To Find Out – South, Ramin Karimloo)

51QiuzCI-DL._SS500Ramin Karimloo is best known for his leading man roles on Broadway, but he really stands out singing in the Country/Bluegrass vein.  In ‘The Road To Find Out: South,” he shows that prowess. This album is part of a four EP set. (West, North, East..) where he sings both a mixture of showtunes and his own compositions in his own style. In this compilation, South, I focus on the show songs: ‘Old Man River’ is sung almost in a plain non-tenor style, and you almost feel like this is a new song, with non of theatricality of the song.  And in ‘Eidelweiss,’ we go from the mountains of Austria to Smoky Mountains of the South – and it’s magnificent.  I wish I could say more about the self-penned songs. They sound nice, but, honestly, did not really speak to me.
