Bryan Estepa is a singer-songwriter who has been around the Australian music scene for several years, and has been a part of a few bands. He’s brought in some of what and who he knows on his recent solo album, Vessels, and the result is good. The album plays to Estepa’s strengths. Opening with the optimistic “Won’t Let You Down” sets the listener up for the best, and the sunnier tunes are all the better ones. The record sounds both familiar and new. There are times for music that evokes a dark room or an artistic enjoyment of bitterness or solitude, but there are other times when it’s good to be told even when we struggle that we’ll be all right, on tunes such as “Pull Ourselves Together.” The best of Vessels is on the tracks that bring that sentiment across.
