Your Own Path


3.5 Stars

Hey, you! Have you ever wondered what would happen if you took the spacey sparse ethereality of Chris Whitley, layered it atop the minimalist electronic sensibilities of the rock band Doves, then slathered it all up with vocals from a laboratory-created triple-stranded DNA helix consisting of Christopher Cross, Maynard James Keenan, and Kenny Loggins? Have you?! Well if so, boy do I have the guy for you. This guy – guitarist and singer-songwriter Clay Snyder – landed in Erie from Hawaii less than two months ago and brought with him an album that's different and interesting and a breath of fresh air from the somewhat self-cannibalizing scene sometimes seen here. That Snyder's got talent is apparent on "Your Own Path," the aforementioned 5-track album, but the most interesting thing he's got going is that voice; it'll be exciting to see how and where he fits in after this strong album starts making the rounds. — Cory Vaillancourt
