Review: 'Orazi, CJ'
'It Ain’t All Unicorns And Rainbows'   

-  Album: 'It Ain’t All Unicorns And Rainbows'
-  Genre: 'Blues' -  Release Date: '17th March 2016'

Our Rating:
Described as ‘a barroom crooner, with bluesy licks and heart-breaking lyrics’, CJ Orazi’s latest album promises a ‘heartfelt mash of acoustic guitars, raw lyrical prowess and a voice capable of warming even the coldest heart’.

Ordinarily, I’d eschew the term ‘troubadour’ on account of its pretentious, not to mention foppish, connotations, but Orazi is, indeed, a contemporary troubadour, and not remotely pretentious. His acoustic songs are essentially lyric poems, sung simply and elegantly and with emotion. He may be a lover, rather than a fighter, and a sensitive soul, but he’s also an entertainer, who can turn his hand to grainy blues ballads. What’s more, he has a knack for a sharp line or two: ‘She don’t wanna be tied down / she’d rather be tied up’, he hollers on ‘Tied Up’.

As much he does love and romance, as the title suggests, there’s the sad side, the down side, the broken side of love, and that’s a rich lyrical seam for the lovelorn songswriter.
