Album Notes
Acoustic pop rock veteran Oliver Tuthill is one of those singer/songwriters gifted with talent who never rose out of the ashes to become a prince, but now, with the Internet becoming a hot market place for pop music sales, Tuthill has at long last released a CD compilation of some of his most beloved acoustic folk rock and pop rock songs.

Raised in the wealthy North Shore of Chicago, Tuthill took to music at an early age and began writing songs after being inspired by the singing cowboy Gene Autry, Elvis Presley, Bobby Vinton, and Buddy Holly. Today one of Tuthill's most prized possessions is a photo of Autry astride a horse with a guitar and a personalized note asking Tuthill to "keep on playing your guitar." And, boy did he ever.

Cranking out over one hundred songs by the time he was 20, Tuthill signed recording agreements with a number of small independent labels, opened for name groups like Styx and the Flock, recorded with giants like Steppenwolf and John Mayall and cracked the top 40 with his single Light of Day performed by Cecil Washington and The Group. Oddly enough the B side I Don't Like to Lose became a cult hit in England and Tuthill still gets fan mail from overseas.

In 1979 Tuthill sang lead and played guitar on producer Kim Fowley's (The Runaways, The Ramones, Joan Jett, Kris Kristofferson) song Santa Ana Wind which was released on GNP Crescendo as a single and later on the album Kim Fowley's Hollywood Confidential.

A seasoned actor who performed in a number of television shows and films including Quincy, Spiderman, Panic In Echo Park, It's Deadly, Bogie, Fall Into Darkness, and Sword of Justice, Tuthill continued to strive to write and record beautiful music and scored his first feature length film with the yet to be released independent feature Dysphoria: An American Tragedy. Tuthill's song from the film, In A Dream, is now available for the first time on his CD Acoustic Concerto.

Tuthill fell in love with the acoustic guitar since he owned his first Gibson hollow body when he was a 10 year old child. Constantly refining his technique and songwriting skills, Tuthill sought to create melodic, haunting songs that would resonate with the listener while addressing timeless issues of human longing, alienation, love, death, and spirituality.

With Acoustic Concerto Tuthill maintains that he has selected some of his most poignant melodic ballads and acoustic rock songs to share with music lovers who miss hearing acoustic steel string folk and pop rock. Several of his songs have string sections on them.

"I love the sound of strings and violins," Tuthill said, "and I often would merge synthesizers and strings to get a rich texture of musical movement behind the main melodic line of the song that would substantiate and support the lyrical story. Mostly, I wanted to share stories that listeners could relate to; of struggles they could identify with, and of goals that all of us seek: happiness, love, and spiritual fulfillment.

Today Tuthill oversees his film company Blue Wood Films, LLC and his music publishing company, Blue Pony Trail Music, a division of Blue Wood Films. He still writes and records music. Tuthill just recently completed writing the title song for his newest film Willatuk: The Legend of Seattle's Sea Serpent, titled The Ballad of Willatuk. He plans to release a soundtrack CD of the film's music sometime next year along with the film.

Tuthill's music has been compared to Crosby, Stills & Nash, America, John Lennon, The Moody Blues, Bill Quateman, Jackson Brown, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Seals & Crofts.
