CD Review: Ramzi Khoury left his office job in California in the fall of 2006 to pursue his music career. He moved to New York City and began writing about his experiences there. So, written half in California and half in New York, "Color" was born in 2008.

"Potential is a funny word", Ramzi sings on "When I Go", the opening track, and this CD has plenty of it. Simple, acoustic songs that demand attention as well as a second listen, these songs are sunny, summer days with the occasional hazy afternoon thunder storm as Ramzi reminisces about life and love. With his heart on his sleeve and guitar strapped to his shoulder, his music would fit in with Cary Brother's Hotel Cafe Tour. In the truest sense of the singer/songwriter, Ramzi keeps the instrumentation light to highlight the music and lyric.

Standout tracks are "Going Nowhere", "When I Go", "Now that You're Gone", and the more upbeat "A Year Gone By".

Add a little "Color" to your music collection if you are a fan of Josh Radin, Jason Mraz, or Jack Johnson.

Buy it at iTunes, CDBaby, or on his webpage at
