Reed Foehls new record Once an Ocean pulls together a touch of country folk and edgy roots rock with the bold honesty intrinsic to modern songwriting Foehls landscape of lush tones and solid songs touches the raw truth of love and tragedy, without sinking into sacharinne sentimentally or cold remove. Once an Ocean features 10 new songs carved from the full range of human emotion.
This new release captures Foehls captivating performance and alluring, enduring songwriting blended with masterful accompaniment and seamless production. Jefferson Hamer, with whom Foehl frequently performs, brings an untamed edge, while Rahams drumming and sound engineering add groove and depth. Fords breathy, bluesy voice and Kleins essential banjo, harmonica, and singing that hooked The Be Good Tanyas fans complete the rich musical ingredients elements of country, indie pop and folk-rock in a perfectly balanced mix.
A Boston native based in Colorado since 1989, Foehls third solo release comes on the heels of his acclaimed Stoned Beautiful, a departure from the jam-oriented repertoire of his band Acoustic Junction and his first solo release, Spark.
Completed after just three days, Stoned Beautiful presented a no-frills trip back to the barn with simple, powerful, direct compositions that caught the attention of new fans nationwide through commercial radio airplay and placements for television.
Foehls sound has expanded from these simple roots with co- producers Raham and Hamer, and Once an Ocean reveals a natural, comfortable connection among these creative forces. I still believe in simple, spirited music made by people together in a room, and the power of a song that transcends the human condition.
