Something You Can't Find
Artist: Tom Wehrle
Label: Espy Records
Newcomer Tom Wehrle is searching - the subjects of his songs are looking for many things - recongition, friendship, self-esteem, closure, understanding, fulfillment, and grace. Mixing Britsih pop influences with American adult alternative flavors, Something You Can't Find might be something you should find.
"You Don't Know" deals with popularity and with wanting to fit in, while struggling with issues no one can see. It features a kazoo chorus that is reminiscent of Huddle. "Something Isn't Right" has a toad the wet sprocket feel lyrically. "Finding Ourselves" combines the sounds of Ben Folds with Caedmon's Call. "6 & 1/2 the Other" is about trying to understand another's point of view:

It's all about getting thereSomething You Can't Find is a promising debut for Wehrle. If he was looking for a positive review, he has found it here.
