Aaron Durr has a natural sophistication that oozes from this piano man whose excellent voice can 
deliver both a chesty resonance and a gliding falsetto, as if two singers are at work. We can’t decide which tune we like more, “Smart Girl” or “Shaken.” The former rides a solid mid-tempo groove that never quits, and the latter’s catchy chorus is a winner in a tale of a troubled relationship. “Double Crosser,” however, can’t overcome its trite, formulaic blueprint. A competent keyboardist, Durr has a quality to his vocals that has made him a
 popular piano bar performer, and it is clear he’s cut out for something better. For his recordings, we suggest he boost the energy of his restrained backups––except for the guitarist, who shreds!

LISTEN
Nothing Lasts Forever
Writers: Michael James Marchesano

Did you ever love somebody so much
That you'd give up your life?
If you'd really take a bullet for love
Then you know why I'd die for you
Baby nothing lasts forever
I'm gonna love you dead or alive
If we crash the car together
We collide, we're beautified, and we're still alive

I've been thinking 'bout the home that we built
and the garden we tend
All the love we made and even the spilled milk
I don't want it to end
Baby nothing lasts forever
I'm gonna love you dead or alive
If we crash the car together
We collide, we're beautified, and we're still alive

Let me explain
Cause I really don't want to freak you
Everything's here and now
You can see it if you open your eyes
I can't complain
Even though I can't write a haiku:
We're all gonna die
Live a little while we can
Is this a haiku?

Are you mindful, do you live in the moment?
Everything is right here, right now
Are you waiting for the Day of Atonement?
Are you feeling aroused?
Baby nothing lasts forever
I'm gonna love you dead or alive
If we crash the car together
We collide, we're beautified, and we're still alive

I don't wanna grow old without you
I'm pretty sure you feel the same
When our song becomes a curfew
We collide, we're beautified, and we're still alive

I don't want to be the last one standing
But I don't want you to go it alone
So let's make a deal that we move on and find love
Life is for the living
