JFH Indie Inspection Review

Tour 2010 EP

Rod Kim
Tour 2010 EP

Street Date: 2010
Style: Piano Pop
Artist Website: RodKimRocks.com


Last year, singer/songwriter Rod Kim decided to pack up his keyboard, quit his day job, and embark on a yearlong tour across the country. Having previously released an independent LP, A Fortunate Consequence and a live album, Live From LaDue Auditorium, Kim's latest offering is a six song EP aptly titled Tour 2010. The EP features two brand new recordings, a song from each of his previous releases, a remix, and a Christmas song. Kim specializes in lovelorn piano pop songs ala Ben Folds. His songs read like journal entries, and though it is clear he has experienced heartbreak, he remains upbeat and hopeful. Kim's melodies are simple and catchy, and while he may be moving in a more polished, commercial direction, his lyrics continue to speak to listeners on a personal level. His Tour 2010 EP shows where he has been and where he is going as an artist and is a perfect introduction to his music. The resounding theme throughout his songs is that love, both romantic and spiritual, can change a man's life. I look forward to great things from this artist, and I hope that someday soon he gets his "happy ending."
