Review by David Bowling
Vocalist Whitney Lyman and composer/guitarist/keyboardist Andrew Boscardin have joined forces as Supersonic Parachute and released their self-titled debut album.
Lyman is a vocalist of great potential. She can soar when needed and purr on occasion. She may need a little more control at times but she has a gift that can turn into something special.
The music is heavy on the synthesizers, which give it a distinct 1960s vibe. The sound is more modern when the guitars are prominent. As the duo develops, they will hopefully settle in to a consistent approach.
They are a creative duo and Buscardin has the ability to write songs and then build them with layers of sound. Lyman has the ability to adapt her voice to fit each song’s style.
It all adds up to a good album by a duo finding their way. The intrigue is in what will happen in the future. Supersonic Parachute is an album that will hopefully lead to a bright career.
