Chris Laterzo - DriftWood


















Chris Laterzo - DriftWood - 2004

from CDBABY
Recorded in his Venice, California living room studio, Laterzo's third album 'Driftwood' is an unaffected blend of rock, folk, and country. Laterzo accomplished what he set out to do on this self-produced project- an album that is unadorned and honest, with every jagged edge exposed, leaving behind a distinctively homegrown air.

From epic and electric ("Pandemonia" and "The Wind") to solo piano and guitar ("Ghost on the Road" and "How Much Love Did you Burn?") to country-folk numbers ("Good Woman" and "Driftwood"), the sound is stripped down with arrangements that don't muddle the song's intent. The performances on 'Driftwood', and the choice of instrumentation- acoustic and electric guitars, pedal steel, piano- capture and articulate the organic spirit of each lyric and song.

01. Good Woman
02. The Wind
03. Driftwood
04. Starlit Milky Way
05. Pandemonia
06. Ghost On The Road
07. Navigate Me Home
08. How Much Love Did You Burn?

Jimmy Cornett - California Session [EP]


















Jimmy Cornett - California Session - 2011

Jimmy Cornett is one of the few contemporary songwriters who as a music nomad seek inspiration on the street, far away from home. Cornett is a musician who affectionately maintains a bridge between the present and the past free of any commercial show effects. His style is influenced by life and song in the English rocker pubs, French country festivals, Scandinavian biker festivals, country round-ups in Las Vegas and dilapidated street cafes in Montevideo. These are genuine, true old-school experiences etched on his memories like tattoos. Love and ecstasy, pain and sadness are the meanderings and curves in what only appears to be an endless road of music. Cornett has developed a style of singing which is quite unique. The range varies from harmoniously gentle to utterly raw, creating an acoustic fever of emotions. His honesty and willingness to face up to risks is a dance with fire for many 


01. Just One Kiss
02. Day By Day
03. Save It For A Rainy Day
04. Howlin' For You
05. Train To Nowhere
