Local CD Review: Mac Comer

Trails of My Town

Mac Comer’s not your local hippie dude anymore. On his second CD, Trails of My Town, he’s given up the party tunes and written a mash letter to Knoxville—“Meet Me Down at the Boulevard” is a bluesy ode to the park at the end of Cherokee Boulevard, and there’s a song called “Wrights Ferry Road.” Comer’s also recruited local mandolin whiz Cruz Contreras as his recording partner. The results indicate some maturity on Comer’s part, despite a tendency to over-sing, and Contreras’ nifty work adds a new dimension to his songs.
