A blend of country and alt rock, almost raising question where he might fit on the spectrum, the tracks illustrate why one of Nashville's most promising new talents has been buzzing since the release of his Ben Rector co-produced album Watching Time Run. After that night's performance and a run through each of his two full length records, I predict Moakler the heir to the John Mayer thrown. A crown he'd likely be proud to wear (minus the douchey gossip surrounding Mayer's love life). And with a few more elements of mainstream production added to the new tracks, he could very well follow in those footsteps.
