ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SO WE JUMP is the 2010 release from Minneapolis songwriter Lonnie Knight. It contains a dozen finely crafted songs about heroes and villains, survivors and demons, love and loss, quandaries and conundrums. The album features Knight on vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, dobro, bass, harmonica and odd bits of percussion. Guest musicians include Rahjta Ren on keys, Reid Papke on bass, Michi Regier and Debbie Sorenson-Boeh on violin, Michael McElrath on organ, Scott Sansby on percussion and Susan Feehan on vocals.

Scott Alarik, noted folk music writer, says this about Lonnie: “I think there have always been two types of folk songwriters: songwriters who play guitar, and guitarists who write songs. Lonnie clearly fits the latter category. But in that category, there are also two types. There are flashy, hot-licks pickers, who wrap incidental lyrics around their fretboard flash'n'dazzle. Then there are song guitarists, who mold rich, eloquent arrangements around clean melodies that live entirely on their own oxygen. Their guitar arrangements ripple with melodic detail, emotional counterpoint, color, and motion. The guitar is to them what a palette and brush are to a great painter. I would unhesitatingly rank Lonnie's guitar work alongside the best song guitarists in the modern folk world, including Richard Thompson, Patty Larkin, Richard Shindell, and Brooks Williams.”

“Lonnie Knight is one of those rare talents who can combine great writing, a memorable melody and immensely tasteful playing into something that transcends a mere song. In every song, there's always that perfect word or perfect note or perfect dynamic.”
David Hanners, St. Paul MN

"This is the album I always wanted to make."
Lonnie Knight, Minneapolis
