Album Notes
"Sweet By & By," Richard Tillinghast's new CD, was released April 1st, 2008.

"Pairing a guitar-and banjo-playing singer-songwriter with a classically trained cellist is not an obvious choice, but it's a musical marriage that works beautifully.
White Salmon's Richard Tillinghast has high praise for cellist Tova Cochrane, who plays in the Hood River Symphionetta. "She's a good friend and an improvisational musician." he writes,"who stretches her classical tendencies playing with a country boy like me."
The pair will appear at The Mint in The Dalles Friday from 6 - 9 p.m. for the release party of Tillinghast's fourth CD, "Sweet By & By."
Tillinghast is blessed with a unique voice. He's been compared to everybody from Eddie Vedder to James Taylor. For us, it's a blend of John Prine and John Stewart, with echoes of Pete Seeger in the phrasing, but none of those do it justice; in the end, he's an individual.
And though he's an excellent performer throughout, that voice was born to sing in a minor key.
Tillinghast also has a poet's ear and economy of expression, with a sweet spot for the telling phrase.
On the song "Orion the Hunter," he writes: "The wind is raging, the fire is out of control/ and I'd cross the bridge back to you, but I'm tired of paying the toll."
Tillinghast has paid his own set of tolls, and traveled the world extensively, including a seven-year stint in Europe in which he worked as a horse wrangler, potter, and door-to-door salesman as well as a musician.
That experience gives an unusual depth to the song-writing, which is well-matched to his guitar and banjo skills."
Rodger Nichols, The Dalles Chronicle, April 10, 2008

Another local paper, The White Salmon Enterprise, writes..."A sweet CD - White Salmon musician Richard Tillinghast has a new CD - his fourth - entitled "Sweet By & By." The album features 13 songs, all but one written by Tillinghast. "Sweet By & By" celebrates the Columbia River Gorge with music that has been described as 'unique, American folk-pop.' Tillinghast and his OneHum Band (guitar, cello, mandolin, banjo, drums) will perform at a CD release party on Saturday, April 26th at Bingen's Solstice Cafe. The show will run from 8 p.m. - 11 p.m."
