Folk Rock Remasters

Recorded, mixed and remastered at Dancin' Moon Studio, Folk Rock Remasters is a compilation, remaster retrospective of “Folk-Rock” tracks from among the 31 albums I’ve recorded over the last 21 years. The oldest track was first released in 2002 and the most recent was released in early 2021.

 

Throughout most of my releases, I’ve pushed against genre to some degree by filling albums with a variety of tracks from folk to rock to jazz to blues to cinematic soundtrack… often creating albums in which anyone can both find something they love and something they hate. In looking back, I drew inspiration from my attempt to do what many of my heroes did— groups like CSNY, Kansas or America who seemed to live in the “Folk-Rock” world… or groups like Led Zeppelin, the Eagles or Rush did when they leaned acoustic… or what the singer-songwriters like James Taylor, Jackson Browne or Gordon Lightfoot did when they brought in the electric guitars.

 

“Folk Rock” brings together elements of acoustic folk instrumentation, folk lyrical sensibilities, a focus on vocal harmonies… and a desire to rip up things with an electric guitar at some point. I spend most of my time in the folk / singer songwriter space… but this album represents those times when I had an added desire to break out the Danelectro and shred just a little. Why release on 9-11? Well, all of these songs in some way channel my own “post 9-11” angst and activism. That’s a big piece of what gives “folk-rock” its “folk”.

 

Hope you enjoy!
