Zack Borer is an interesting singer/songwriter, similar in style as John Mayer, Keaton Simons, Jason Mraz and the likes, but certainly not yet on the same level. The songs on “Dollars Spent On Nothing” show potential but do not really stand out in the crowd. It may have something to do with the production or mixing of the album, but Borer is very much a beginning artist.
Bring Back The Days is a nice soulful song that would make a very decent radio single. It’s a song that could garner attention, cause exposure and give Borer a chance to meet people, for doors to be opened, so that he can exploit his potential. Because that he’s talented is for certain, he just needs to learn, listen and develop.
Give him a few years to open up for bigger, more accomplished artists and Borer will pick up the tricks of the trade and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him break through eventually.
