Album Notes
"Quite a new world for instrumental guitar subtlety. Standout moments include the spare rasp of 'Above The Clouds,' the sonic narrative 'Rememory,' the dance through dust of 'Amarilla' and, especially, the dirge that refuses sorrow of 'Sophie & Boscho'" –Martin Jack Rosenblum, Shepherd Express

Born in a small Wisconsin blue-collar town, Mike Starling ditched the assembly line for a long, sometimes circuitous multimedia career working with words, music, still photography and moving pictures. He drew inspiration from his travel experiences and a thriving but slightly disorderly collection of string, wind and percussion instruments to compose and perform the 12 guitar ensemble pieces that make up the Guitar Moods album project. You can check out his latest journeys in sight and sound at mikestarling.com.

This album was released in the early days of CD Baby, whose founder Derek Sivers offered independent musicians a real opportunity to make fans and sell their music across international borders. It was a great run while it lasted, thanks to everyone around the world who bought the Guitar Moods CD!

With new distribution methods – first downloads... now streaming... tomorrow, who knows? – the compact audio disc format is destined to go the way of 78s and 8-track tapes. When the limited edition run of this high-def audiophile-quality CD runs out, they're gone forever, so grab one while you still can.

Meantime, stop by mikestarling.com, where you can stream full-length versions of our latest recordings (and some classic tracks). Formats may change, but the beat goes on...
