ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A native of southern West Virginia and now living in the Charlottesville, Virginia area, Bahlmann Abbot grew up in a family fond of swapping stories and songs while gathered on his grandmother's porch. Some of his songs reflect this love for story telling while others paint an impressionistic view of the struggles and rewards of love and loss. His songs are influenced by his experiences as a carpenter, river guide, husband and father. As an architect whose focus is the design and renovations of the family home, he draws a parallel with songwriting to the design of a house. They both start as a fuzzy concept with disperate parts and evolve and gain clarity as one sketches over the plan or works over a particular melody line of a song. For him listening to a song can be like moving through the different rooms of a house, each room refering to the last but offering a new revelation or view.

A self styled acoustic guitarist, Bahlmann's music sets a distinctive mood which is embellished by the spare notes of his pedal steel. On Falling in Place he is joined by veteran musicians from the Charlottesville music community including Jeff Romano on harmonica and keyboards, Randall Pharr on bass, Spencer Lathrop on drums and back up vocals by Peter and Debbie Hunter. Each of Bahlmann's three grown daughters also makes a contribution to the artistry of this warm and heartfelt colection of songs.

Hasn't been out of my cd player
This was recommended by a local author in an email - and I took a chance. This CD rocks. It hasn't been out of my player since it arrived over a week ago. I keep it playing almost all day long. Love the voice, the songs, and the feeling of combination of lyrics and melody
