Surrounded by Lights

by Jesse Sprinkle

Fans of Neil Finn, Ice Cream Hands, Elliot Smith and good tunesmanship, Sprinkle's outings are always worth checking out. "Surrounded By Lights" is a more of a laid-back affair than "The Corner Of An Unlit World"

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is Jesse Sprinkle's 2008 solo release and add another notch of achievement in a long career of a consistently excellent music. Sprinkle can't help but make moving, powerfully impactful tunes. Fans of Neil Finn, Ice Cream Hands, Elliot Smith and good tunesmanship, Sprinkle's outings are always worth checking out. "Surrounded By Lights" is a more of a laid-back affair than "The Corner Of An Unlit World" but the hallmarks of carefully blended vocals and soaring open chorded strums very much remain. Crisp guitar lines and rich, soothing vocals urge the complete success of this project clearly into focus, opening up fresh pop vistas of effortless strumming and lovely melodies. IT does not get much better than this for fans of acoustically, chiming, ringing power pop than this. Lyrically rich, the songs rely on sugar-sweet harmonies on every second of this CD.

"Sprinkle`s music is sparse and spacious, moody but not gloomy. It`s essentially the man and his guitar, and most of the instruments that he colors the tunes with. Sprinkle rifles around the thesaurus in his head, searching for an appropriate label before settling on ‘darker pop." -Rochester City Newspaper.
