ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It's been said that as a young and inexperienced person one thinks that to show suffering one has to be loud, however when you experience it firsthand, it becomes clear that it is so much quieter.

This is a reality that Nick Drummond carefully captures in his new full length album, Follow The Rivulets. Unlike so much of the formulaic Sad Songs we hear constantly in modern music, the album offers a clear peek into the cracks of a busted heart, and subsequently the soaring freedom of finally letting go. Along the way we hit all the familiar stages of any healing process – the indulgent self-destruction, the rock bottom, the fleeting moments of introspective clarity, and the surprise of being carried away by laughing in a way you thought you never would again. His writing is sometimes florid, sometimes mischievously playful, and sometimes direct and simple, but always with an unapologetic sincerity that will melt your heart if you open it.

Behind this, Drummond weaves together his own playing with the support of a masterful band. Oliver Franklin (guitar), Ehssan Karimi (drums), Eric Robert (keys), Nathan Yaccino (bass) and Jon Karschney (french horn) make an electric combination that adds complexity and texture to Drummond’s overall sound, while Nick delivers his lyrics with his signature clarity and head-turning range. One of the most gripping songs on the album, “Waiting for the Dawn” relies entirely on the instrumental quality of Drummonds voice, and still captures the same rawness as its tightly written counterparts.

While some songs on the album can be enjoyed at full volume during rush hour, danced to with friends, or shared with a loved one to express something you couldn't quite capture yourself, I would recommend having the first listen in the emotional security of your own company. It may bring tears to your eyes, but will leave you with the hopeful reminder that “sometimes laughter does what memory and tears never could.”
