Music Review by EDF

New group SUNS OF MARCH is a four piece group that come from Montgomery, AL. While they are a rock based outfit, they mix in Hammond organs and fiddles, that at times allow a Country sound to creep in. Consisting of founder member and main songwriter Michael Wright on vocals and guitar, Ryan Aldridge on bass, Berry Matthews on drums and Kurt Butler on guitar, fiddle and nearly every other featured instrument in the group’s repertoire. You realise when you listen to this album how solid the production is and it should come as no surprise that it was produced by Jeff Tomei who have worked with other artists such as Smashing Pumpkins and Matchbox 20.

The first single from the album was “San Jose” which got the group a lot of attention in a few countries. This track has more of a country feel to it due to the fiddles and the way Wright delivers the song. The latter half of the album is more power driven than what we have heard so far. The best example of this is the title track itself, “Bulletproof Heart” where it has all you would like to say to your ex-lover. This thread is also found in “I Learned It From You” and is something we can all relate to. The only time the album slows down is on the melancholy “Sentimental Moonlight” which is backed by violin and slide guitar. Overall, this is a decent album and if you enjoy decent rock music that you can sing along to, than this is the album for you.
