Rick Denzien
 
Rick Denzien is a relentless promoter of his music, including assuring his album was eligible for the Grammy process in 9 categories. The songs on Exit 21 have an REM influence including the opening track "Desperation" and my favorite track "Father Love." Moody lyrics and melodies permeate throughout this collection of 13 songs, lifting into some pop choruses, though throughout there seems to be a conscious choice to keep the vocals low in the mix and the bass up front. The result is a MOR feeling college modern rock collection that works well in it's niche.
