Review: Billy Bauer Band – So I Love

Seven years after the release of 2011’s full length “Maybe Tomorrow,” Billy Bauer Band returned with new music this summer with the long-anticipated single, “So I Love.”

The band tracked the single — a fan favorite at live performances — at MilkBoy the Studio in Philadelphia, funding the project with support of its vast regional fanbase via GoFundMe. Now available on digital platforms everywhere, “So I Love” is a fast-moving, nostalgic slice of acoustic rock written in memory of Bauer’s late father. The single features a strong, rugged vocal and infectious melody from Bauer, harmonized in the refrain with the electric violin of Chris Lorenzetti, which shines in its ambiance throughout the track.

Those who pick up the single (or stream it digitally) will notice that they get some bang for their buck. The band included three live tracks from its 2014 opening performance for platinum-selling alt rockers Third Eye Blind, including renditions of “Maybe Tomorrow” cuts “Front Yard” and “Birdman,” as well as a version of “You Never Know” from 2006’s “Another Day is Coming.”
