Wag More Bark Less
With a lengthy production and songwriting career spent mostly in the shadows, Chas Sandford has rarely afforded himself the opportunity for his own voice to be heard. With Wag More Bark Less, he sounds as if he’s been ready for this moment for some time. Specializing in smooth but seductive midtempo melodies with radio-ready appeal, Sandford complements his guitar finesse with husky yet engaging vocals with an echo of Don Henley. Likewise, emotional ballads like “Broken,” “My Favorite Regret,” “I Believed” and “Whenever I See Your Smile” sound so familiar they might have been plucked from Billboard’s Top 10 circa 1975.
