Sammy Nino is a musician from New York who has dedicated his life to finding the right words and melodies to sing and play. Nino shares those songs with us on More Than Worries. He makes palatable music that has aspects of folk and rock but fits nice and snugly into a category of pop.
His music contains shades of melancholy but for the most part the songs were very uplifting. I like the flow of the album which was fluid with a lot of cohesive elements. He has a sound that he shapes amongst these eight songs.
Nino went to a pro studio and the proof is in the pudding. The songs are radio ready and reminded me of something you could find on the FM dial. This is a professional sounding effort in every aspect.
Nino opens with “Need You From The Start” which gives you a good idea of what to expect from the remaining songs. His songs often start grounded but by the end have a grand, epic and hopeful vibe. “Free” is a standout track. The vibe is upbeat and seemed like a serious contender as the single which would get radio play. “More Than Worries” was a solid track that also really brings on the reflective vibe and in a way that made me appreciate the subdued and sparse “Hold My Heart.” The remaining three songs further develop his style and the structure you can hear he clearly has an affinity for.
Nino’s music in general has a mainstream appeal to it. That’s not a bad thing but it’s hard to deny. You can hear differing artists like Coldplay and John Mayer in there. While there is little doubt he is stepping into a large arena with a lot of competition he doe it really well. The delivery and songwriting is on par with a lot of larger acts that have a similar style. Check it out and you should know quickly if this is your cup of tea.
