Mormino, Brad - 2001 Love Hurts Anyway

Brad Mormino - vocals, background vocals, drums, percussion
Curtis Marolt - all guitars, bass, keyboards, sequencing and drum programming

Music has been an important part of Brad Mormino's life since he was a child with his parent's exposing him to many varied musical styles. Somewhere along the line he discovered rock and for the past ten years Brad has been drumming and singing in rock bands in Wisconsin and Chicago. For a while Brad had been harbouring a desire to pursue his own direction with his own material, the final outcome being 'Love Hurts Anyway'.

The Songs
It hasn't been an easy journey getting to this point and it is understandable that a number of the songs are quite personal and emotional, bundled up in a mostly acoustic pop/rock atmosphere reminiscent of Mitch Malloy and Mr Reality. While Brad has a good voice in the Mitch Malloy vein I think it his song writing ability that will take him further. Tracks such as 'Bleed', 'True Love' and 'I Am Alone' are very well written and performed, having a sound that would appeal to a wide audience. Brad also mixes in a couple of rockier tunes with 'L U 2' (particularly catchy chorus), Been So Long' and 'Stupid Again'. They're good songs, but I think Brad's major strength is in the more laid back reflective material. We are also treated to Italian versions of 'Bleed' and 'True Love', which are perhaps even better sung in Italian than in English. Hitting the Italian market might be a consideration. 'Love Hurts Anyway' has shone a light on a very talented song writer and performer.

In Summary
In the future I would hope to hear a full album in the style of tracks such as 'Bleed' and 'True Love' as these definitely have hit potential. However, that is my preference and doesn't detract from 'Love Hurts Anyway' being a nicely varied and entirely pleasurable listening experience.
