Positivity is always a good thing, and singer-songwriter-instrument player extraordinaire Wayne Potash’s album Yes! serves to inspire just that. Whether your interests include in depth musical descriptions of trucks and canine space-travel or you just enjoy listening to catchy tunes with your family, this album (the overall theme of which is “positive affirmation and fun”) will put a smile on your face.
Weighing in a 15 tracks in total, this album (which just came out in February of this year) offers a variety of styles and sounds for any situation- and I’m not just saying that. In order to test the myriad of uses for the music on Yes! , I engaged in the various activities associated with my day-to-day life and accompanied myself with the tunes via speakers. While walking to my morning class, I found myself bobbing my head to the blues-y “Rock Island Line.” On the way back, my song of choice was the aptly named rock song “Seven Nights to Rock.” Finally, when I’m headed to the mystical land of dreams tonight I’ll be joined by the steady and upbeat yet soothing melody of “Sleep in a Tent.” These are just a select few- I worked out, ate salad, and did my homework to the rest, and felt a whole lot more positive about those plus life in general in the process!
What really makes Yes! great, however, is the outstanding performance of the band as a whole. Mr. Potash alone is a force to be reckoned with, but throwing the accompaniment of so many talented musicians into the mix really takes the songs to a new level of acoustic enjoy-ability. I would recommend this album to any listener, young or old, who likes to smile and have a good time!
