Album Notes
The Memphis based Pop / Rock / World music combo, Native Son, has been turning heads since they resurfaced on the local scene in '01.

Their 2002 release, "Spirit" is filled with some old favorites and brilliantly vibrant new songs .
"Spirit" was produced and engineered by Jeff Powell (Tonic, Afghan Wigs) and features many of Memphis' premier guest artists.

Paired with Violinist, Jon Westover, Bassist, Blake Rhea and Drummer, Stak Murphy, longtime songwriter and Guitarist, Wayne LeeLoy, has set out to raise the stakes with this newest incarnation.

Their eclectic mix of latin, reggae and pop music is redefining the soundscape of Memphis and the southeast.

Perfect for all moods
This CD is great. I have now had the CD for 11 days, and it has yet to be removed from my car CD player. There is a song for every mood. The music is soothing but energetic for the morning, and helps me unwind in the afternoon. Erosion, Phoenix, and track 9 are my personal favorites. I have already recomended it to all my friends!

If you love roots music with pop overtones, you’ll never grow weary of Native Son. On par with Dave Matthews, Counting Crows, and India.Arie, Native Son ply organic melodies with expert musicianship, delving deep into strong folk, rock, and jazz influences with an occasional burst of r & b. In other words, they draw from every avenue of American music. Ably commandeered by singer songwriter Wayne Leeloy, the band’s repertoire is open to a wide range of harmonic possibilities. To their credit, Native Son never meander or wander into meaningless jams. Leeloy’s confined baritone and literate lyrics are emotive and serious, as his driving acoustic guitar comping anchors each cut. However Leeloy’s nimble fingered posse, notably violinist Jon Westover and bassist Will Lowrimore provide the thrilling counterpoint and rhythmic acrobatics that lift the songs to a level of mainstream-radio hit potential. From the sentimental retrospection of "As A Child" to the angelic harmonies of "Bird On A Wire" (no, not the Leonard Cohen classic), to the seductive vibe of "Open Book", Spirit is Native Son’s calling card to success outside their borders. Long may they run.
