Jingle writer and kid TV sensation PT Walkley demonstrates a knack for pop music, adult audience.
PT Walkley can claim songs that have appeared in both scotch adds and on Sesame Street. Listening to “The Way That You Are”, the point of entry on this 10-track release, you understand. There’s something childlike about the sparseness of the tracks, about the energy the sometime Edward Burns collaborator brings with him via “Go Away”, “The Purpose of a Skunk”, and “I’m a Snob”. There’s also something subversive enough to make all that innocence seem ever so slightly less so, via “The Marriage of Mice”, and “If I Were British (Sing Along)”. There are moments, in early listens, when the songs seem to blend together a little too easily, but repeated visits allow the individual character of each to shine through.
