Kamhi, Marc: Breakdown (EP)
Marc Kamhi Breakdown (EP) Review

Kamhi, Marc: Breakdown (EP)

Acoustic Rock
3.0/5.0

Manhattan, via Queens, guitarist Marc Kamhi has been at his craft from a very young age. His influences in music range from the classic rock to hair metal, and other singer-songwriters like James Taylor and Neil Young. His five song acoustic EP, Breakdown, is a prelude to a forthcoming full-length work.

As singer-songwriters go, they're not really my thing. I can dig a Neil Young, especially when playing his harder stuff, and with a full band. James Taylor, in any context, not so much. But I get him.

Kamhi in voice and guitar playing leans more to the rock side, rather than the mellow James Taylor side. His guitar playing has a rougher, sturdier feel; maybe 'ham-fisted' best describes his hold on the guitar. Call it 'manly' acoustic guitar rock. If he wanted, Kamhi could probably front a hard rocking band with equal aplomb.

His subject matter is typical singer/songwriter fare, Kamhi 'shares his emotional expression of life, loss, pain, rebirth, and redemption.' Dandy. Another reason S/S's don't push my buttons. Addendum: call this 'manly acoustic guitar rock from a dude in touch with his emotions.' Okay then. I wonder if he gets more chicks.

Nevertheless, with guitar firmly in hand and heart definitely on his sleeve, Marc Kamhi delivers some well-played acoustic tunes. Best picks: Just Think of Yourself and Stronger Than You Think. And you can't argue with his choice of American whiskey. Jack. Check him out.
