Your Love, My Home

All Music Guide - Aaron Latham
If the music and voice of Josh Groban were thrown in a blender with the laid-back approach of Norah Jones and pureed to an ultra smoothness by a top producer, the results just might resemble the debut disc of Joshua Payne. The sweeping balladry of Your Love, My Home introduces the classically trained Payne to the same masses who flocked to worship the pop romanticism of Groban and Andrea Bocelli. Teaming with producer Michael Omartian Christopher Cross, Michael Bolton, Payne shies away from his classical roots to showcase a set of luxurious pop songs that go light on the bombast and heavy on sentiment. The title track basically sums up this formula, as an orchestra swells ...

If the music and voice of Josh Groban were thrown in a blender with the laid-back approach of Norah Jones and pureed to an ultra smoothness by a top producer, the results just might resemble the debut disc of Joshua Payne. The sweeping balladry of Your Love, My Home introduces the classically trained Payne to the same masses who flocked to worship the pop romanticism of Groban and Andrea Bocelli. Teaming with producer Michael Omartian Christopher Cross, Michael Bolton, Payne shies away from his classical roots to showcase a set of luxurious pop songs that go light on the bombast and heavy on sentiment. The title track basically sums up this formula, as an orchestra swells and ebbs with each progressive chorus highlighting Payne's longing voice that mews lyrics like "You will never know a night alone/I will make your love, home." It is the type of song you'd expect to hear backing a professional figure skater on a television special. However, it is performed and produced to perfection, and carries with it the same guilty pleasure as reading a romance novel. The balance of songs, mostly written by Payne and Omartian, border on bland and tend to bleed into each other, with the exception of the breezy light jazz of "The Moon" and "City Song," which captures the late-'70s/early-'80s soft rock ballad style of Michael McDonald or Christopher Cross. Overblown renditions of the classic pop tunes "If" Bread and "If You Leave Me Now" Chicago are surprising distractions and the album might have benefited by using Payne/Omartian compositions in their place -- perhaps a couple of playful melodies to thwart the tediousness of all the ballads. Payne's voice is a fine instrument that fits perfectly in this romantic setting. He's not as forceful or operatic as his contemporaries and his muted tone and shallow vibrato work in his favor, as he exudes a vulnerability that is less technical and more emotional. Despite the lack of sparkling material, Joshua Payne's voice and ability to create dreamy tunes are enough to win anyone over who may simply want to relax and enjoy what the title of one song suggests is "The Art of the Heart."

    happy accident

    I was casually browsing the cd aisles and this one grabbed my attention for some reason. What a happy accident! I used the listening devise and was hooked as soon as I heard Joshua singing the first track. He has a velvety voice that caresses. I immediately purchased it and rushed home to listen to it. I was thrilled to find a new artist I love.

    Absolutely Beautiful

    Joshua Payne's voice grabs you on the first track and keeps you listening all the way thru the entire CD. He is being compared to Josh Groban and there are similarities, but his voice stands on its own merit. Go ahead, treat yourself to a copy, you deserve it.

    I fell for this Zen sound hook, line and sinker.

    When it comes to music, choices are very personal; what your ears yearn to hear is all that matters. Reviewers expound on the sound and might sway some but really with music it isn't about what someone else thinks. Joshua Payne's genuine, gentle sweetness is my strongest impression on these tracks. I enjoy ballads when they are sung with emotional generosity and this cd fits my genre perfectly for me. The arrangements could not be more complimenting to this magnificent voice. Joshua Payne has a comfort level with his music and own voice that is refreshingly pure. There is no assault of sound either it's all very respectfully woven together to be as clear, palatable and sensitive as possible. The originality of each piece is done with great care and passion. Even the three remakes are uniquely arranged beautifully. For me this cd is like a great yoga class - envigorating but very peaceful. The zen quality of Joshua Payne's voice is not lost on me. I love this. I think it's the finest release of 2004 to date. It's just my personal opinion.
