Sea Gayle recording artist, CJ Solar, released his debut EP, Hard One To Turn Down. The new collection of music features five brand new songs, all of which Solar co-wrote, co-produced and played on. Hailing from Baton Rouge, CJ delivers relatable songs that country music fans will certainly appreciate.
Introducing the EP with “New Radio,” Solar makes a great introduction showcasing his solid vocals. The momentum continues with album titled single “Hard One To Turn Down.” The new track has an anthemic feel of sorts, and provides a laid-back vibe brought to life with notable lyrics. “Tall Boy” serves as the lead single from the EP and is based on getting over a relationship, which includes moving on with an ice cold tall boy.
Many will notice a familiar voice featured on “Just Another Day In The Country” as CJ Solar teams up with Jerrod Niemann. This is not the first time the two artists have worked together, Solar co-wrote Niemmann’s latest single “Blue Bandanna.” Bringing the EP to a close is “A Little More Time,” a standout track which exposes a more vulnerable side to the artist, and brings the album full circle.
We were immediately captivated by all five songs, and hope that this album obtains the recognition it deserves. The country theme is strongly maintained throughout the EP, all while incorporating a variety of musical elements. Each song has its own sound and its own story, offering listeners a variety of gratifying music. CJ Solar makes a solid first impression with this release, and is a collection of music that is indeed a hard one turn down. In fact, you’ll want to turn it up!!!
