Music Review: The Great Divide by Stella StageCoach

While I was going through music blogs listening to sample songs a few years back, I came upon this group of musicians. Stella Stagecoach is an indie pop/rock band formed in 2009 by two brothers, Mathew and Tim Morgan. According to their profile, their music style is influenced by their trip abroad (I'm guessing England by the sound of the vocalist). Their music was initially only instrumental composed for small film projects, but soon after, the brother dual started writing lyrics to accompany their instrumental tracks. They released their first album, The Great Divide, late 2009.

The first sample song I heard by Stella StageCoach was What Have I Done off their album, The Great Divide. The song has a piano component in it, which is always a plus for me. I thought the song itself sounded better than most music at the time and decided to purchase their album. Once I listened to the whole album, I was surprised at how cohesive it was which made me like it even more. The whole album has a fun whimsy feel about it, especially in the songs First Times, The Great Divide, and Paper Crown. Other songs are slightly darker, but still match the overall tone of the album. I would say that the band is sort of a fusion of Michael Bubl√© and Jason Mraz. If you're a fan of either of the two, then you might want to purchase a copy of The Great Divide by Stella StageCoach.

Overall Rating: 5/5
