ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Music swirls in the soul of Andrew Holbrook, just as he breathes in the air from the mountains that often symbolize his Muse of melodic inspiration. Holbrook's music is not for the faint of spirit. His lyrics churn with emotion, passion, and an unassuming honesty guaranteed to capture the ear - and quite possibly tug at the heart - of an unsuspecting audience. His storytelling talents and vivid descriptions transport you to the places, literal or figurative, and to the lives he describes. You taste the melancholy, feel the wind of his journeys, and hear the swishing of a red tail hawk.

The melodies and full chordale arrangements that accompany the words weave themselves within his masterful percussive finger style to produce innovative, unexpected sounds that embody the soulfulness of his music. Holbrook, who commands attention with an unassuming, observant, and poised demeanor, is unafraid to sing of subjects that many people wouldn't have the courage to even whisper.

He paints tales of feverish love, temptation, and resentment. He shares the color and mood of illusions, of the struggles of mind games, and the follies in accepted cultural conventions. He also takes us to the heights of his gratitude for the beauty and re-creation granted by nature and its accompanying moon.

From the cozy atmosphere at coffeehouses and the unforgiving airwaves of radio showcases to the open skies at dude ranches, Holbrook's live performances fill venues with currents of deep sentiment. He transmits his music of commitment, disappointments, discovery, and conflicts of the heart. He exudes personal philosophies that he freely shares from the depths of his musical soul.

Holbrook's recordings are similarly engaging and powerful. In his "Sky Corral" CD, the essence of his magical, moving gifts float in the air. You'll find yourself admiring the beauty of what and whom he pictures for us in "Colorado" and "Rainbows in the Sky." You'll feel the vibrations of sadness in "Everything's Alright" and "It's so Hard to Say Goodbye." You'll inhale the regret in "Everyday."

You'll drink the bewitching aura of the moonlight in "Forever," and you'll taste what is possible in "Red Tail." You'll be moved by the romance of "Holding On," "All of Our Lives," and "Love Me Just the Way I am." The wind will sweep through your hair in "Lay You Down." The clean, sweet simplicity of "So Beautiful" will leave you smiling. The selections are numerous, as is the range of emotions they'll invoke in your own spirit.

Holbrook soars in a creative, unblemished whirlwind that's fresh, daring, alluring. His music is meant to be experienced.

Very Nice
This album, I feel, is rather under-represented in the grand scheme of things. Andrew Holbrook is an extremely talented guitarist, and is quite the song writer to top it off. While these two frequently go hand in hand when it comes to accoustic guitars, it does not mean that this album is like all others produced by artists with similarly grouped talents. There is a clear "western-ish" tint to the songs on this ablum, and it sounds reminiscent of SHEL's earlier works. It is easy to listen to, and enjoy, while simultaneously having depth of character and emotion, and an overall sense of the author having come a longer way than most, and having much to share from the experience. Highly recommended.
