Melody Thomas reviews the solo debut of Lyttelton's velvet voice Marlon Williams.

Marlon Williams AlbumMarlon Williams first came to the attention of local music fans as the lead singer of Lyttelton country band The Unfaithful Ways back in 2008, and he’s been the honey-voiced young buck alongside Delaney Davidson’s gravel-worn stallion for three albums of country songs. His just released self-titled solo debut, offers up a diverse showcase of styles, shifting from energetic Honky-tonk and haunting country ballads, to luscious sounding 60s pop straight from the Bacharach and Spector songbook.

Songs Featured: Strange Things, Everyone’s Got Something To Say, Silent Passage, When I Was A Young Girl, I’m Lost Without You
