ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Gillwire's debut release sounds like it comes from an alternative garage band after taking a few music history and literature courses to add a little spice and refinement. Gillwire is the creation of Chandler Arizona resident J.G.Thwaits (middle name Gill) who wrote and recorded the album, in his garage while also holding down a full time job as an electrical engineer. Scattered throughout the record are hints of influence from the likes of Beck, Cake, Elliott Smith, and The Beatles; the result is eclectic pop rock with a healthy dose of grit. From track to track you get a sense that each selection is the portrayal of a formative moment from the life of the storyteller and collectively they convey the experience of living, loving, and surviving in the world. It's a representation of the struggle to balance artistic drive with real world responsibility, a sonic journey that keeps you interested the whole way through. From the driving pulse of Sand in My Pockets to the orchestral influenced Lost for Words, it's all stitched together by Gill's unique voice which sounds unrestrained, experienced, yet always retaining an air of vulnerability.

Written, recorded, and produced by J.G.Thwaits
Mixed by J.G.Thwaits and Kelby Thwaits
