Country music around South Louisiana for the past
thirty years. In late 2006, I decided to record
some of the songs I had written in that time.
The studio was like a breath of fresh air after
playing clubs and other peoples music for so
long. I have never let the fact that I am legally blind
get in the way of performing or songwriting.
I am a firm believer in following your dreams
and that is what I am doing.

"On My Own" by Sid Melancon is a collection of impressive country songs brought to you with a modern sound and a bit of tradition. The album is strong in many ways. The lyrics are clever and tell a story. Sid's vocals are certainly memorable, both in terms of excellent pitch as well as his well-suited country voice. The excellent harmonies in the choruses of many of these tracks are also noteworthy. The arrangements and musicianship behind Sid's vocals are professional, lively, and well layered. Overall the CD has a commercial radio-ready professional quality. Highlights include "Stronger in Love," a tale of love lost that is a definite sing-along. "Done Her Wrong" is a high energy upbeat tune, with a nice walking bass line and fun solos. "Just What to do" is another "barn-burner" with nothing but a good time in mind. If you enjoy country music, especially male country vocalists, you'll like this one.-William and the RadioIndy.com Reviewer Team
