Album Notes

Since meeting at the University of North Texas in 1990, guitarists and friends Darin Layne and David Pulkingham have gone on to become critically acclaimed and internationally respected musicians with resumes that would rival those of some of the most well known names in the business.
Darin has produced and released eight albums of his own, including the Eastern- influenced "Left of Sunday Afternoon," which Guitar Player Magazine called, “The perfect Sunday morning disc,” and has worked with an impressive list of artists, including Donovan, Moby and Paul Barker of Ministry. David, who has worked with the likes of Robert Plant, Bruce Springsteen and Tony Visconti, David Bowie’s producer, currently tours with Patty Griffin, and Has four albums of his own, including the most recent acclaimed “Little Pearl”.
Both Darin and David have been gigging, touring, recording, producing and teaching professionally for more than a few seasons.
In 2007, inspired by their mutual love of the Brazilian song form, Choro, they and seven other friends, formed a band called the Crying Monkeys. This lead them to a greater understanding and proficiency in arranging this beautiful music instrumentally. From this their first album, Poison Flower, was born. Instead of playing music from the traditional Choro repertoire, the first album featured original compositions largely written by Darin and co-arranged by the duo. The response by listeners was so positive that within a year, both players were writing and imagining the second album.
"Stringology," the second Pulkingham Layne album produced by Darin Layne, is the result of mutual love of the guitar, instrumental music and 25 years of dear friends playing together as often as their busy schedules would allow. It is in turns giddy with playfulness and heartbreaking in sweet sadness. It traverses styles from Choro to Jazz to Classical with nods to Flamenco Heavy Rock and Klezmer music. It is a heartfelt expression of joy in music and camaraderie from two world class players who have every intention of moving the listener…..and continuing to do so for quite some time.
