Tyrone
Vaughan – Downtime

Downtime
– Next Stop Texas – Bubba Dan – Buzz Kill – Nine Times Out Of
Ten – She Could Have Had Anything – L.O.V.E – Ladies Man –
Wanna Hear You Sing – The House Feels Empty
You
can guess by the name that this guy is no posh New-yorker hipster,
especially if you think that guitar hero Stevie Ray Vaughan is
Tyrone’s uncle!
No
worries, this Downtime LP is not going to give you any break, led by
Tyrone’s clear-cut voice. Let us talk about the songs as a musical
journey.
First
let Tyrone take you on a freeway to his beloved one-star State with
“Next Stop Texas” and its beguiling melody. However as it is
sometimes good to be back home, namely a home to share, you may long
for your Saturday night dish your sweetheart used to cook (“The
House feels so empty”).
You
will feel fine hearing harmonica on “Bubba Dan” along with well
tuned guitars and swingy violins doing counterpoints.
You
may also chill out noticing the clever use of the banjo on “Ladies
Man” and see the

a capella

spoken part as the perfect break to introduce a solo on a detuned
guitar.
Nine
times out of ten” has got, as for it, an uplifting chorus played a
little bit higher with violin starting at the beginning of it. For
sure a gem ten times out of ten.
L.O.V.E”,
with its sizzling and old-fashioned intro offers something
Dooresque
catchy and hypnotic, probably my favorite song on “Downtime”.
Overall,
instruments play well smoothly together and never encroach on each
other.
So,
what have we got here? A real country hit-tank and obviously one more
gifted musician to add to the Vaughan family.
