Mason Man” -- a universally enjoyable love song that one might have expected Frank Sinatra to sing at the Sands Hotel in the 1960s. Drummer Eli Hludzik’s interesting take on the “Mr. Mason Man” rhythm anchors it with a relevant, almost urban feel. Deeper tracks, including the pop ballad “Gone” and jumpier “Breathe,” are classic in concept and demonstrate the true virtuosity of Jeff's band, particularly Wes Styles’ expert guitar-playing.
Even deeper tracks, “Stay Awake” and “So Far” turn into guitar-heavy rock tunes that suggest an influence of Genesis and Led Zeppelin. Side Hey! concludes with a sweet piano lullaby, “Here with Me," which showcase's Jeff Fowler's distinctively velvet baritone voice. But perhaps the most pleasurable track on Side Hey! is the bonus live version of “Breathe,” which is an energetic recording of the band playing to a packed house at a well-known LA venue. Jeff Fowler’s next album is set for release in Spring 2009.
