Giveaway and Review: Five For Fighting CD - Slice (11/11) CLOSED

Thursday, October 29, 2009 Posted by Dina N


Five for Fighting's new album, Slice, just came out this month. I was not familiar with their music until the One2One Network sent me a download of this CD.

John Ondrasik, the singer and songwriter who records his music under the band name Five for Fighting, has five previous albums. Along with numerous television licenses, John has composed songs for “August Rush”, “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”, “We Were Soldiers”, “Chicken Little” and “Everyone’s Hero".

Here is what John says about his music:

"Every round I try to write the best songs I can, and perhaps step out of the box a bit. To me, records are about offering my worldview while providing sentiments to which people may attach themselves or escape into. Slice is where I've come from, where I am, and a few scraps I've picked up in between. All in a slice of time."


I enjoyed listening to John's expressive voice and meaningful lyrics. Several songs start with a piano intro, and all feature beautiful instrumentals. John is a very talented musician, and the tracks in this album are memorable. I particularly liked the title song, Slice, as well as Tuesday and Story of Your Life. Slice is definitely worth hearing. I played it numerous times, and found a new favorite line or melodic sequence every time. Don't we all want to say to our loved ones - or hear it from them -"You put the beautiful in life." 

Here is a list of all tracks:
1. Slice           
2. Note To The Unknown Soldier           
3. Tuesday           
4. Chances           
5. This Dance           
6. Above The Timberline
7. Transfer           
8. Hope           
9. Story Of Your Life           
10. Love Can't Change The Weather           
11. Augie Nieto

You can learn more about Five for Fighting on their website, watch the videos on YouTube,  or find John on Facebook and Twitter.

Right now, John is touring with An Acoustic Evening with Five For Fighting. Here are the remaining stops on his tour:

29-Oct            Nashville, TN
30-Oct            Chicago, IL  
3-Nov             Salt Lake City, UT
5-Nov             Seattle, WA         
6-Nov             Portland, OR       
10-Nov           San Francisco, CA
11-Nov           Los Angeles, CA

    I'm afraid to say I haven't been listening to much music. I've been listening to WINS, and every 20 minutes they give me the world.
