Radio Airplay Review

Overall Impression: Sky Fallin’ by Dean Mueller is an Americana-tinted piece of Rock that looks back and wonders what the hell happened. This new tune brings a little Southern flair to its Rock foundation by way of some twangy guitars and Mueller’s gravely vocals. The groove bounces along with an infectious energy, bringing the most stubborn fans to their feet. It serves as a killer foundation for Mueller’s witty attitude and singing. Stricken with disbelief, the lyrics tell the story of a fella ignoring the warning signs and getting dumped. They make for an ear worm chorus filled with hyperbole and an insanely catchy melody. As the tune progresses, the excitement and humor grows exponentially before erupting in the final hook. This is a wildly fun new Rock tune by Dean Mueller that is full of energy, catchiness, and a story that too many of us can relate to.

Strongest Point(s): The varying musical textures featured in Sky Fallin’ are wildly entertaining. The verses ramble forward with a Southern edge, while the chorus erupts with a rocking anthem. There isn’t a single dull moment in Sky Fallin’, and the listener is left reaching for the repeat button.

Target Audience Appeal: Fans of Rock and Americana will enjoy Sky Fallin’ by Dean Mueller.
