Product Description

This debut release from Colorado Springs resident, Jeff Caylor takes cues from John Mayer and Matt Wertz with songs that go from funky piano to smooth guitar to emotional introspection. If you're a fan of indie singer-songwriters, check out Jeff Caylor today. This album is so independent, the artist is talking about himself in third-person right now.

Review

Sounds like ... acoustic pop and folk reminiscent of John Mayer, Sting, Matt Wertz, and Dave Barnes. At a glance ... the title just doesn't do justice for Okay, a stellar independent album with smart Christian songwriting and superb musicianship. Long before John Mayer's on-again-off-again relationship with Jessica Simpson was tabloid fodder in US Weekly, Mayer recorded an album called Room For Squares that I couldn't take out of my CD player for the better part of two years. And naturally, after someone as buzz-worthy as Mayer hit the scene, a slew of copycat acts followed and the term "thinking man's pop" was tossed around as carelessly as confetti at a birthday party. Diehard fans would elicit an impatient groan every time a new artist was compared to Mayer. And then I heard Jeff Caylor's album Okay. Like Mayer's work, the Colorado Springs native has a knack for witty wordplay, warmly complemented by unfussy, jangly acoustic pop. But unlike Mayer's aw-shucks commentary typically dedicated to relationships gone wrong, Caylor digs deeper with thoughts on life, love, and the state of humanity. And if that sounds a shade too serious for your pop music tastes, rest assured his thoughtful, faith-based insights are very accessible and never too heavy-handed. Memorable songs like "The Ballad of Jon Turner" and "Perspective" definitely provide food for thought something that's very welcome in light of the average disposable pop song. Once you hear this well-crafted collection, it comes as little surprise that Elton John was one of Caylor's favorite songwriters growing up. Both have a knack for telling stories through song, and Caylor's emotive vocals make the storytelling all the more convincing, whether singing about life's trials (the funky "Pain Is a Megaphone") or the need for clarity from God ("Equilibrium"). Shying away from familiar Christian clichés, spirituality is powerfully woven throughout, yet artfully understated. Thus the Anderson University alum cleverly examines the nuts and bolts of faith with "Maybe Tomorrow," while "I Didn't Think I'd See You Here Today" serves as a thoughtful reminder of God's love in all seasons of life. Thinking man's pop? Sure, but Caylor's work doesn't just fit a label; it exemplifies the term. Okay is about as sophisticated and catchy as Room for Squares plus it benefits additionally from stronger takeaway value. --http://www.christianitytoday.com

Okay strays from folk in rich rhythm, vocals BILL REED THE GAZETTE June 29, 2007 - 9:31AM Jeff Caylor calls his music acoustic soul, which is a nice handle to describe the range he covers. The Colorado Springs musician recently released his debut album, Okay, and it showcases a talent local music fans will want to get to know better. He is a folkie who, unlike many of his brethren, embraces rhythmic complexity. It s clear from the first track, Almost Flew, with the sweet groove of the acoustic guitar, bass, hand drums and maracas forming a rich backdrop for his vocals. Those vocals are another thing that sets Caylor apart. He sometimes possesses the pleasing pop gravel of a Sting, and other times turns on the folkie-funk of a Jack Johnson. And he gives voice to some nice snatches of lyrics this moment s your currency to spend or pain is a megaphone. Halfway through the album are the skippers Equilibrium and Perspective, which are about as invigorating as a dose of laudanum. The smooth, effects-heavy production on these tracks seems out of place and turns the songs into bland, forgettable mélanges of sound. After the two-song detour, the album bounces back. The second half is mostly moody and thoughtful, punctuated by stirring violin. The quiet finale, I Didn t Think I d See You Here Today, brings us down easy. All in all, the musical journey is far better than Okay. --http://www.gazette.com

We highly recommend Jeff Caylor and his album "Okay". Jeff Caylor describes his sound as Acoustic Soul, which is fitting in our opinion. "Okay" is a subtle, yet passion-filled album and is an enjoyable listen from start to finish. In this era of overly produced, gimmicky "pop" albums, Okay is a nice departure. --musiclovr.com

I'm not Caylor's cousin and I don't think it's a sad CD at all. On the contrary, I found this CD an amazing surprise. I'll admit that I have my doubts when I buy "Indie" artists material, and usually I'm disappointed. Not this time. Caylor's OKAY CD is downright amazing. From the opening "Almost Flew" to the funky/jazzy "Pain is a Megaphone" and "Standing Still," this CD leaves me wanting more! (Caylor - make these a bit longer next time!) You will not be disappointed with this purchase. If you like acoustic, funky, jazzy music with passionate, soulful lyrics that actually make you think and reflect then this one is for you. Wake up on a Sunday morning, pour your coffee, pop in this CD and enjoy...
