The only problem with Reza Salleh’s debut album is that it employs love as the central theme, resulting in a sometimes annoying, lingering neediness throughout. He also sounds like the frontman of Creed at times.
That aside, Realize is still an album that invites playback. With a variety of melodies and paces, Reza’s soothing voice makes for great company over coffee on a rainy day.
Listen to: ‘For Her’, ‘Need’
If you dig this, you’ll dig: Phil King, John Mayer, Creed
