Album Notes
Ali Eskandarian was born a few months before the climax of the Iranian revolution September 11th 1978 in Pensacola Florida where his father was being trained by the Americans. Upon the completion of the training Ali and his family returned to Tehran, Iran's capital and the family hometown. After the war was over and the Ayatollah Khomeini died (1989) the family moved to Aachen, Germany and were granted political asylum by the German government. After nearly 2 years in Germany the family were granted political asylum by the US government and moved to Dallas, Texas where Ali went to High School and College. Ali attended the award winning Quad C theater program @ the Collin County Community College in Plano Texas where he studied acting for 2 yrs. After that he moved to Los Angeles for a year to pursue a career in acting. He then returned to Dallas to concentrate on the band he played with, The Warm Jets. He moved to NYC in July of 2003 so he could play with the big boys. "I knew that people's ears opened wider in NYC". Ali is influenced by many kinds of music from Iranian Pop, jazz and traditional music to Indian, Greek, Italian, and German(krautrock) to Glamrock, blues, country, jazz, psychedelic rock, YOU NAME IT. Alis ambient alt/country soundscapes, mixed with his edgy songwriting and singing set him apart in todays music scene.



to write a review


beautiful concoctions of full bodied nothingness
Ive been playing Nothing to Say in my taxi all weekend- passangers are loving it- there is a full bodied spontaneously present voice which can often be tamed on a studio recording- not here. That honesty builds an immediate connection. A great voice and fresh sound, but really that connection is not the result of anything which can be articulated hence the title is a lovely allusion to what is most important in any artistic exchange. Great to know this music is being made now- thankyou...Only critisism was I wanted more- greedy!- and would love to hear more of the middle Eastern influences which added another layer of rich presence to a couple of tracks.

All the way Ali!!

I loved the harmonies, your smooth acoustic guitar playing and basically everything. Your voice reminded me of Bob Dylan's on the Nashville Skyline album and a bit of Jeff Buckley, my hero of all times, falsetto's melodies. Wow!! I was hungry for something that good. I wish you good luck on the road touring with this album and maybe hopefully will see you in Santa Cruz. The attic will be a good place to play here in town.



Real music from real person for real people.
Great music and lyrics combined with a distinctive style make for an artist I can't wait to hear more from. Do your ears a favor and get this CD.
