"Red Light, Green Light, Go" by Brett Perkins is an inspirational, easy listening Pop album. Each track delivers real instrumental, non-synthesized music with accurately harmonizing vocals. Greatly inspired by the work of The Beatles, "Red Light, Green Light, Go" does an exceptional job of combining the melodies of 60's pop with modern Americana guitars. The track "Figure It Out" has a perky, upbeat tempo and the chorus is probably the catchiest one of the entire album. The instrumentation on the track "I Won't Give Up On Love" matches the artist voice perfectly. Staying in the tenor range with a female vocalist accompanying him, this song is intricate in lyrics and musicianship. The Beatles have inspired many a great artist since the launch of their career and "Red Light, Green Light, Go" by Brett Perkins is a shining example of that.
