CD Baby: CASEY HOLFORD: bad spell, good spell (1786 words)
"bad spell, good spell" is a pretty intimate affair recorded in the home studio of producer scott mann.
The songwriting on his second album, Bad Spell, Good Spell, is skewed in the way many of his fellow musical naifs' output is. That might sound like a bad thing, but anyone jumping to that conclusion need only think of any number of talented musicians whose work was ruined by the homogenization of formal training.
Good songs insinuate themselves into your head in some way and there are several of them on this album.
