Album Notes

Produced by The Decemberists’ John Moen, whom also handles all drumming on the record, and plays guitar, keyboards, and even some strings on the album, Chris Tsefalas’ sophomore full-length, "Follow The Sun", is a rich, layered late-night rock record, equal parts melodic pop and rollicking rock.

With influences including roots (The Decemberists’ Chris Funk’s pedal steel adds a touch of country flavor to the tracks he sits in on), power-pop, lush pop, and straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll, Tsefalas and his band have stepped it up a notch from their warming debut, "I’m All Right?", making a darker, but equally infectious record with "Follow The Sun".

Filled with eleven honest, dirt-and-soil songs built from the ground up, Tsefalas examines life’s ins and outs, tackles depression, and sees through the evaporated hopes that once surrounded him, somehow coming through it all with beaming optimism and a smile to match the intensity of the songs.

He even smiles and has a great time, as is the case on "Bad Rat", a song whose lyrics were written by his young daughter, whom asked her daddy to put music to it and make her poem into a song. For which he gladly did, and he and the band had a great time rocking out and doing so.

This is an album that will not only fulfill your sugar cravings, but goes well beyond that, delivering cavity-creating pop moments, oft with dark overtones that come to life the more you listen and engage in the songs.

A thinking man’s record, a record that will grow on you with each listen, Tsefalas’ "Follow The Sun" is the kind of record that will comfort you, sharing both good times and bad, while, no matter how far down you think you’ve gone, it will smile right back at you and say, "Times are rough, but just follow the sun for the light".
