It’s always good fun when a new songwriter with a foot in two worlds blends them together to create something which is very much their own. The new EP from The Rebel Scientist does just this, making for an excellent four track collection which can be found now on Spotify, iTunes and all the usual places.
The Rebel Scientist himself is a guitarist who has made a career as a session guitarist, mainly in the world of mainstream pop music. This is a clear influence on his work, with each of the four songs having real moments of catchiness. However, his skill as a guitarist brings to the EP a different slant, adding some intricate guitar work which wouldn’t sound out of place in a rock band.
By blending these two genres, The Rebel Scientist has come up with something a little different which should appeal to fans of both. And with any luck, he will soon find enough success that he is able to take centre stage himself.
