Critics take aim at Lou Mars "Whispering 2 Shout"

ReverbNation Crowd Review (*Wisdom of Crowds), Takes Aim at the Lou Mars Band Track "Whispering 2 Shout." Comments/Observations from 'Wisdoms of Crowds' Critics: The very beginning sounds of this track are so different to the point that it grabs the listener right in and doesn't let go! This track uses different techniques with the vocals and harmonizing that isn't heard on the everyday radio play. This will definitely grab and hold on! The vocals have the sound as if being sung with a megaphone, or sung "through" a tube which gives it a hollow sound that is different and desirable! This being different makes this song more interesting and gives it better chances to rise up higher in the charts. Believe it or not, it's got a bit of a Beatle quality to it; almost as if there is the Sgt. Pepper album influence in this song. The beat keeps the listener on their toes and the lyrics flow extremely well with the sounds of the drum beats. Very original and the message the vocalist is getting across is heard plain and clear...use your voice and not your fists was my favorite line. This song will definitely make it on the charts and it has potential for a big audience. Very talented high action introduction would appeal to 'hippy'-ish personalities. The lyrics also go hand in hand with the hippy feel that the background track presents. The slight reggae feel presented creates a very enjoyable experience with a very easy to listen to voice over the top of good solid music. This is a strong piece but lacks depth in the lyrical construction as well as there being to much going on instrument wise at some points. That such a magical introduction to song, with a variety of strings instruments perfectly combined and played together, I especially enjoyed how the banjo was played, quite, close strokes that made track stand out right from the beginning. Absolutely adored percussion as exemplified by manner in which drum was played. Really enjoyed 18 first seconds (i.e., intro) of the song. Singer timed his coming in perfectly, but please DO NOT digitally enhanced his voice, song is losing its amazing professional quality because of it! I thought the lyrics as sounded by back sounded better. This is a very good track, just get rid of any digital effects! I enjoy the opening set of strings and the percussive instruments as they come in. I like this song, it reminds me of something that would be on a psychedelic soundtrack, similar to Across The Universe. I don't think that this is something that will make it to the radio, but I do think that it will be a huge hit in the indie music community. One of those bands that you knew first. This song is a really calm song if you are looking for some serenity. This melody is relaxing and tuneful to relax anyone listening to it. The vocals are distinctive and warm hearted. Lyrics make sense and sound good and at the correct tempo with the song. The instrumentals are awesome and in harmony. I loved the horn solo towards the middle because of the variance from the original set of instruments. the melody sounds on key and the melodies used work incredibly well with the harmonies used. the artist has a lot to offer to the music industry. The vibe that this track gives is very strong and bold. I really enjoyed this piece as it combined a folk sound with touches of rock, country, and even a smattering of the Beatles. The percussion is perfect with the drum corps touch tossed in here and there. The horn section was a nice touch. The song has a light and airy quality that I really enjoyed.

Lou Mars Band Special “Story Teller” and CD Release Party

The Lou Mars Band to perform a special “Story Teller” show and CD Release party Friday, April 25th, on the 'new' Otter Rock Cafe sound stage, located in Morro Bay California, 885 Embarcadero.

The 90 minute set will feature the most popular original selections from the Lou Mars song catalog, along with NEW material from his 4th and latest CD Release “4NO1” (but u). The set will also include selected covers taken from the Lou Mars Guinness Marathon Drumming World Record documentary “Beat 5.” The Otter Rock show will provide an intimate setting for Lou Mars to reveal the back-story behind his most popular songs.

The Lou Mars Band is Jonal Clauff (Guitar Vocals), David Chock (Bass, Vocals), and Lou Mars (Drums, Synth, Vocals).

Professional musician, recording artist and author; Lou Mars, career spans over 30 years. Mars drumming was featured in the 'Dixon Drum Your Way to Hollywood' televised special which aired on the Comcast on demand A&R Channel in 2008. The program was edited and reissued by Dixon in 2010 with Mars as the featured artist titled “How to be a Great Drummer.” Mars also appeared in the Warner Brothers recording artist Sharon MaRee music video "The Way You Love Me" which received heavy rotation on the GMC channel in 2009. In 2010 Mars performed for 5 days straight for the Guinness Book World Record Marathon Drumming category, a total of 108.5 hours to place himself as one of only four drummers world-wide to ever play beyond 100 consecutive hours, and the second longest drum performance ever recorded, at the time of the event.

After a near fatal motorcycle accident in 2011, Mars bounced back by writing, composing and performing all of the instruments (many from a wheel chair) for three CD releases “Broken, Phoenix Ashes, and Reflect.” produced from 2011 thru 2013. On April 04, 2014 Lou released his 4th CD titled 4NO1 (but u). The Lou Mars song catalog is written as a soundtrack to support his upcoming book release titled “Beat Alive” due out in 2014.

Although Mars performs “all' of the instruments on his recordings, his hand selected band performs the songs live under the Lou Mars Band branding.
