Song Review:

Song: Time Changes Everything

Overall Impression:

A master of Western Swing, Nolan Bruce Allen has put forward another gem with his tune Time Changes Everything. The moderate groove provides enough get-up-and-go to bring listeners to their feet without pushing anyone to their limits. With a witty sensibility, the lyrics play with the power of time and its effect on love. Their cleverness is often disguised by Allen's larger-than-life singing and provides a cathartic release for listeners with a keen ear. If the lyrics don't grab listener's attention, the fine instrumental fills and melodies surely will. Following the colorful honky tonk piano, the fiddle takes center stage with a light, effortless solo before the final chorus. Recently nominated to the Music Hall of Fame in Buffalo, NY, Nolan Bruce Allen brings a signature sound with Time Changes Everything that awes with its musicianship while keeping a cool approachability.
