NEW ALBUM RELEASE: "Open" by David Guilbault
True as Blue Music announces the release of "Open" by David Guilbault, a roots music album imbued with the sound of vintage parlor guitars.
In 2014 David acquired a few vintage parlor guitars from the Thirties and Forties. These old guitars were manufactured in Chicago, typically out of solid birch wood. Made by Regal, Kay, Slingerland and Richter, these blues machines have a distinctive old-timey sound.
Using open tunings for the first time, the sounds of these guitars inspired David to write some bare-bones tunes, the kinds of songs you might write on the front porch of a rural farm. But the subject matter is very much about the travails of today. These are truthful songs about greed, power, life choices, acceptance and rejection.
David finger-picks the guitars, while producer Jeremy Serwer adds some sweet accompaniment on a Regal resonator guitar.
This is the third in a series of repertoire-spanning EP's David expects to release in 2015. Each album will have a different theme, both lyrically and musically - "True" (Country-Rock - Producer Chris Klimecky), "Bare" (Ballads - Producer Jason Goessl), "Open" (Roots - Producer Jeremy Serwer), "Gone" (Folk - Producer Paul Beaudry), "Over" (Indie-pop - Producer Colin J Nelson) and "Hard" (Americana - Producer Matthew Brown).
At this time, "Open" is available exclusively as a free digital download on BandCamp (https://davidguilbault.bandcamp.com/album/open)
