If I was to use one word to nail down Rocky Votolato it would be consistency. The man has never failed to put out a half-decent record, and his passion for music has never showed any signs of waning. Unfortunately, the only progression that the artist seems to be making lately is an increasing polishing and honing of his sound. He's not taking any steps backward, but he doesn't seem to be making any forward either. This isn't such a bad thing, but you just wonder if Votolato is so proud of his music that he doesn't want to make any changes, take any risks
The album proved a signpost to a period of depression where he quit writing altogether and went into seclusion. A year later, he tried to find his way out; he began looking at his demons, and reading and investigating philosophy, spiritual, and esoteric thought. Eventually, his depression relented enough that he could begin writing the songs that became True Devotion; his finest collection. Produced with Casey Foubert, this is a set of profoundly honest, lyrical, predominantly acoustic tunes that reflect on his condition, the origins of its cause, and find a path to acceptance.
Back with his fifth studio album, True Devotion, Votolato returns to the direction of Makers and Suicide Medicine after the brief departure in sound that was The Brag and the Cuss. And a welcome return it is. Votolato's warm, inviting baritone grips you within the first few lines of "Lucky Clover Coin" and doesn't let go once over the course of the 10-song album. Votolato needs no more than some light acoustic progressions and his voice to let the story unfold. When he sings "you're keeping me alive, 'til the sunrise shall spring roses in water" and his.
