Overview

The obvious "sounds like" comparison for country-rock singer/songwriter Mark Wehner is Steve Earle. The Philadelphia-born Wehner doesn't have Earle's Texas twang, and he doesn't rock quite as hard, but he is liable to remind listeners of Earle in the sense that his music mixes traditional elements of acoustic country with basic rock & roll and in the sense that he writes closely observed, wry lyrics that he puts into catchy melodies and sings with a knowing matter-of-factness. Songs like "It Might as Well Rain," "I Was Doing Fine," and the title track are could-be hits that somebody in Nashville should have put holds on, even if Wehner's musical approach isn't exactly like the pop-leaning sound favored by country radio. As it is, his own versions are excellent and well worth hearing. That's the Way That It Goes, Wehner's second full-length album, deserves to earn him much greater recognition as both a performer and a writer.
