Carey Ott's melodic pop is catchy and appealing
Former Chicagoan Carey Ott's new LP is one of a good-sized handful of anticipated 2006 releases from Nashville's rock and pop community — and judging by early tastes of it, might be one of the discs with the widest appeal.
Due out in May on Nashville label Dualtone, Ott's Lucid Dream straddles a couple of melodic lines comfortably, with sounds that fit in the pop singer-songwriter landscape with fellow Nashvillian David Mead and former Nashvillian Josh Rouse, but also keeps a moody melodicism that will appeal to Anglophiles who gravitate more toward polished Britrock players like Travis.
It's the kind of pop that can appeal to both collegiate types and their moms — á la Coldplay — in that it's inoffensive and catchy, but still has some youthful enthusiasm. Fans of TV's Grey's Anatomy got a little preview of Ott's new music early this year, when the show played Dream's leadoff track, Am I Just One, in a January episode.
