Great songwriting and history collide in the new EP, 'We'll Answer The Call' from John McDonough. The five songs of 'We'll Answer The Call' are a welcomed wakeup for the folk/Americana/singer/songwriter genres. His music seems to be fueled by his excellent sense of words and tying together the acoustic guitar with more subtle, but romanticized instrumentation courtesy of the piano and electric guitar. Just like 'We'll Answer aThe call,' John McDonough could be called an alchemist.

McDonough's prideful display for this particular subject moves along with much the same way as historical non-fiction author Erik Larson("The Devil In The White City," "Dead Wake: The Last Crossing Of The Lusitania" and more). McDonough is a natural at giving another life to this story. McDonough brings such joy to these songs because he believed in the human spirit that Rantz possessed. I think he feels the same about his listener.
