Movin’ Higher Review on Mossip

Posted: Jun 3, 2009

by Andrea Guy, writing for Mossip | Original article

Nick Daugherty has a pleasing voice so its no surprise that he was chosen to be one of the “Top 100 Unsigned Artists” by Music Connection. His songwriting is uplifting and fun. Perhaps the only downer about the guy is that he’s almost interchangeable with artists like Gavin Degraw, Jason Mraz and John Mayer. That doesn’t matter because Nick’s debut Movin’ Higher is so good, you’ll keep playing it until the disc is worn out.

You’ll cheer him on as he tries to muster up the courage to speak to the girl of his dreams in “Out Of My League.” And you nod in agreement as he calls off on “Sick Day,” which is one song that just about everyone except maybe Paris Hilton can identify with. It is the every man style of his songwriting that makes Nick’s songs stand out from his peers. Perhaps it’s the 14 years of guitar experience he has and the 8 years writing songs, but whatever it is, Nick’s songs have a certain appeal, because they are open and honest and sometimes even painful.

Nick paints a picture with each song, especially Jaime. You don’t need a video to accompany the song to picture a loving relationship unfolding. The lyrics do that for you. Just as you can feel and see his heartbreak as he sings “Giving You Up” a song about the painful breakup of a not only a lover but also another friend. I Won’t Stand For Watching You Fall Down a song about an attempted suicide will break your heart as you listen.

There’s no glitz or gimmicks to Movin’ Higher, its just great songwriting and a voice that seems familiar and that’s what will draw people in. You’ll listen to one song and say, isn’t that….and with a shake of the head of someone else, you’ll ask…well then isn’t it? Until someone finally says “That’s Nick Daugherty.” and you scramble off to find Movin’ Higher because you’ll want to hear more and more of his unforgettable and so true to life lyrics.

Its not often that an album can really touch a part of you so completely, but this one does. Nick writes about life and love in a way that so few can, and he does it beautifully so that you savor each moment of the music hes sharing with us. You go through the ups and downs and all those moments in between on Movin’ Higher and you’ll love every minute of it.

If you try one new artist this year, let it be Nick Daugherty. He may not have a new sound but the music he’s giving us is too wonderful to be passed over.
