Single Review: Eli Rey – That Kinda Feelin

by Laura Giagos

At its heart, Greeley has always been a country kind of town. But because of its proximity to the Grizzly Rose in Denver, most major country acts sign a radius clause saying they can’t perform within a certain distance of the Grizzly Rose and well, that’s where Greeley sits. But in true Greeley fashion, when something won’t come to Greeley, Greeley just does it themselves. That’s what Eli Rey has done with his earnestly delivered single “That Kinda Feelin.” 

With slick, red dirt country rock production and a starry-eyed demeanor, Rey elevates the local country scene to a radio-ready level with that down home kind of feeling. Fit for the national stage with his clear, heartfelt, cross-over vocal, look for more from Eli Rey later this fall upon his return to Colorado from a Texas radio tour.
