Album Notes
"The Spinning of the World" is Jeff Talmadge's second CD, and the follow up to his debut "Secret Anniversaries".

"Sit back and let the man impress.... The kind of folk everyone can't help but be touched by." -- Ben Ohmart, "Music Dish Network"

"More than a storyteller, Talmadge is a poet... he joins such artists as Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, and Lyle Lovett." -- Bob McKenzie, "Sound Bytes"

Since his 1999 debut CD, Secret Anniversaries (described by one reviewer as a “nearly perfect recording”), each of Jeff’s recordings has received extraordinary reviews and extensive radio airplay. Blissville, first released in Europe, debuted at No. 2 on the EuroAmericana Chart and reached No. 1 on the Roots Music Report in the U.S. The Americana audience responded, and Blissville remained on the Americana Chart for three months. His songs have also been recorded by numerous other artists.

His story songs and finger picking guitar style, in the tradition of other well-known Texas songwriters, have been heard on everything from the Judy Collins holiday radio special that aired throughout the U.S. to NPR’s Car Talk. When Gravity, Grace and the Moon was released in 2003 in the U.S. on Bozart Records it was described in SingOut! Magazine as “a masterpiece,” and he was soon signed to Europe-based Corazong Records.

Jeff’s wide-ranging experiences permeate his songs. He has been a janitor, a Capitol Hill Congressional press secretary, an associate baseball scout for a major league team, a published poet, a seminary student, a board-certified lawyer and an award-winning songwriter.

"The Spinning of the World" boasts the talents of Eliza Gilkyson and Iain Matthews on background vocals, Gene Elders on violin, Stephen Bruton on slide guitar and mandolin, Mark Hallman on harmonica, Paul Pearcy, and Glenn Fukunaga as well as a cast of other Austin all-stars.

The album is produced by Bradley Kopp, who has worked as a guitarist with Joe Ely, Sara Hickman, and a host of other Texas artists.
