Album Notes
“The Tacoma Songs” is a handcrafted album full of acoustic-based sonic gems. These aural nuggets were written with my Tacoma Roadking acoustic guitar, which I often use when fleshing out my ideas. The record captures the warmth and intimacy that surround those organic sessions. The vibe ranges from the directness of ‘70s singer/songwriters to Orbison-like ‘50s sock hop tunes, country-tinged clarity to headphone-craving sonic explorations. Several friends accompany me with the purity of the piano, the gentle strings of the viola, and the crispness of electric keyboards. Taken in parts or as a whole, the album is a testament to the candor of music written with one of the purest of instruments and provides greater accessibility and clarity to the lyricist/listener dichotomy.
