Sophisticated songwriting, presented in the most elemental manner; one voice, one guitar.
The clean simplicity of the cover of "Voice and Guitar" speaks to the elegant approach taken in presenting the musical contents. Unadorned and direct, allowing the songs to stand on their own merit without distraction. Recorded and produced by James Hurley, mixed by Michael James (New Radicals, Robben Ford, A.J. Croce) and Matt Forger (Michael Jackson, Simon Lynge), and mastered by David Donnelly (Aerosmith, Nelly Furtado, Journey), this is an album that celebrates the essence of the song.
Includes three songs from past albums as well as material written expressly with this recording in mind. Of the songs from prior albums, two; "Mountain" and "Walk Away", were originally recorded in a fully-produced band context, the third, "Whisper", in a fairly stripped down manner. But all three have evolved as solo arrangements through years of performance. So they, along with every other song on this album, are presented in exactly the same intimate manner audiences hear them at shows; nothing but Voice & Guitar.
