Andrew Belle – The Daylight EP

Image

Andrew Belle is a twenty-something singer-songwriter from Illinois that has a knack for writing songs that often get played in the background of some of your favorite television shows. From Pretty Little Liars to One Tree Hill, Belle’s music gets lost in the bright lights and brighter characters of these teenaged-tinged soap operas.

Often compared to the likes of The Fray and Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Belle writes tunes that your girlfriend and advertising executives are sure to love. Unlike his musical comparisons, Belle’s safe-as-milk songs are sensible and approachable. But, where Belle’s songs succeed as soundtracks they fail as a whole. Without a pretty manufactured television image accompanying them, the three songs on The Daylight EP run together into one large fourteen and a half minute track that neither excites nor provokes.

Belle has a future. Don’t get me wrong. With his good looks and adult contemporary compositions, Belle will be writing songs that will eventually be used to sell anything from cars and computer software to thirty-something Starbucks drinkers with dead end day jobs.
