Chris St. John’s I Called You Rose has a traditional rock sound that melds together performers as diverse as John Denver and Billy Joel. There’s a bit of a more traditional, even 19th-century approach to St. John’s single that will stick with listeners long after the song ceases. The instrumentation that bubbles forth at points during I Called You Rose hangs with Chris’s voice. There’s a robustness, a richness to the production here that makes everything work. Utterly familiar while still giving Chris St. John ample opportunity to forge his own unique pathway, I Called You Rose will have toes tapping for the foreseeable future. Give the single a play (below) and let us know what you think.
