ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The road -- it’s a mythic setting for American music, and it knits our nation of wanderers together. In the songs of John Sonntag it’s a recurring image, be it the buoyant path of possibilities in a song like “New Paradise” or the poignant promise of escape in one like “Hiding Behind Headlights.”

John’s own road has led from an upbringing in the steel towns of Pennsylvania to an education at the musician’s mecca of Berklee in Boston; from a significant role in the vibrant independent music scene of Sinatra’s former home, Hoboken, to a mature producing and recording career amid the peaceful splendor and wealth of stories in historic Lambertville, New Jersey, along the Delaware River.

John’s musical road winds through the many sounds of America, with a down-home fondness for acoustic strumming, mournful slide guitar, plaintive harmonica and sprightly piano as well as an affection for the modern atmospherics of electric fuzz and the faroff instruments America has embraced, like the mandolin that brightens some of his songs.

He’s kept good company on this journey, sharing stages with talents ranging from Richie Havens to Alison Krauss, and serving as producer, player, collaborator or songwriter on a number of respected indie artists’ albums.

Many of the latter wrote songs or sang with him on his first CD, One More Midnight, an all-star reunion of the Hoboken folk scene which embodied the urban sophistication John brings to timeless musical qualities, and the confidence with which his own artistic voice mixes with other visions.

John’s actual voice is one of the main marvels of his music; a sweet, supple instrument comfortable in settings from countrified croons to slow funky grooves and uptempo roots-rockers. The stories he tells with that voice range from deserted factories to happy new homes, drunken laments to emotional rebirths; the private surprises and disappointments that make up the quiet epic of everyday lives.

As John’s musical quest continues, the title of his upcoming album says it all: Chasing Stars, the motto of a music boundless in its horizons yet satisfied with simple pleasures. John Sonntag’s restless road may have no end in sight, but the music he makes is not about what’s lonely and left behind, but what connects people, and how far you’ve come.
