All in Good Time (Sony, 1995)

Marcus Hummon

Reviewed by Richard McVey II

Hummon came to Nashville in 1986 and has since made a name for himself as a live performer on the local club scene and writer of several hits ("Cheap Seats" for Alabama and "Only Love" for Wynonna). As for his debut, it's a stretch to categorize it under the heading of country. Don't let the lack of country sound, even by today's standards, dissuade you. Hummon, whose talented smooth tenor vocals possess a fresh quality, also wrote or co-wrote all 12 songs. Starting with "Hittin' The Road," which sounds like it came off Harry Connick, Jr.'s record, listeners will know that Hummon has a distinctive style. Throughout the album, Hummon mixes an even blend of upbeat, piano-licked tunes with heart-wrenching ballads backed up by strong melodies and sweet harmonies. For those listeners who walk the tight-rope between pop and country, and are tired of unrecognizable hat acts, look no further than Hummon.
