New Music Review: Ty Gonzalez

Written by Terry DeBoer on . Posted in Local

GonzArtist: Ty Gonzalez (Gonz) Album: “Big League Dreaming”Baseball references abound in the latest project from West Michigan-based hip-hop/rap artist Ty Gonzalez (Gonz).

"Big League Dreaming" takes listeners on a tour through his youthful goal of sports heroism to his newer pursuit of musically communicating gospel truth.

The title track's music video (online) visually tells the story. Raps such as "Triple Crown" and "No Shame" carry the baseball metaphor. But "Bottom of the Ninth" actually reveals his new passion: "...It's time to rap, ain't nobody stop me....walk and not be faint, like an eagle I soar..."

He performed some of the new songs at an August benefit concert in his Comstock Park hometown, where he was a baseball star during his high school days. (Ty's younger brother Zane currently is a pitcher for the Kalamazoo Growlers of the Northwoods League).

The new album is available via iTunes and other digital outlets.
