Don Rousell drops new single


Most would agree most popular artists out there have something truly special to give to their fans. This goes above the typical attributes like raw talent, amazing songs, nice voice, or even a very marketable look, sound & image. There’s something truly infectious at the core of these artists that simply makes us feel good when we listen to them. Whatever “it” is – they all seem to have “it”. Don Rousell is one of these artists.

Today I listened to the latest single from Don Rousell “My Wife and My Girlfriend” Venturing to the internet I get the impression this is one artist that is extremely experienced and passionate about the songwriting craft. From start to finish this exciting single from Rousell delivers and is in itself a very entertaining musical experience from start to finish. It has a Contemporary Motown, Jazz quality to it and even dabbles in classic Vocal Blues and Soul Rock It also reminds me of Billy King, Curtin LeMay and Bobby Womack among others. Any fans of any of these artists will enjoy this latest release from Don Rousell. It’s clearly marketed for those who enjoy a low but soothing Baritone vocal front. The song is priceless Pop-Blues and my hats off to Rousell for hand picking such an amazing piece to release to the world. Within this single Rousell offers up his own unique musical interpretation and bares his soul delivering what I would call pure musical mojo on Bass and vocals. It offers much in the way of passion and compelling-thought provoking message. The playing from Rousell is impressive and he is backed up by Shane Regal on guitar. The timing is spot on and just makes the whole song even more enjoyable. The overall vibe of the production is boldly honest but offers pockets of hope shining through. The song is remarkably easy to groove to.

I see Don Rousell as a polished performer. He possesses an amazing amount of experience, insight and rock solid musical instincts behind the microphone or behind a bass. The strong suit of this single is the way Rousell makes every second of this track all his own.
