Taste in music, like wine, is in the realm of the beholder.. from rapturous love to ho-hum to complete abhorrence. A wine taster will describe the appearance, aroma, and finish and be able to identify the subtle tastes of a small region in a particular country on the other side of the earth.

“Many musicians weave a large chunk of themselves into their work, and Neil Wise is no exception. Only two of the tracks on Songs From the Edge of Middle Road were co-written with the help of friend and co-lyricist Dean Anderson; the rest were written entirely by himself. Wise has drawn from his own experiences and shaped them into tracks that can be both constructive and enjoyable to others. . It is full of touching lines, one of the most sentimental being, "Tell me, will Heaven ever glow more than your smile?" The mandolin and harmonica round the song out, leaving you with a peaceful feeling. Although Songs From the Edge of Middle Road contains a mix of genres, they all seem to revolve around a single folk-country, country-rock base. And there is something about the voice of Wise that is especially homey and soothing without ever becoming expected and dull. Wise's music is unique, and he has shared his stories in such an intimate way that makes it feel as if he has given listen”
