New single ‘In The Valley’ out now.
Earlier this year, Common Man Music released a collaborative album entitled Faith Journey featuring spoken word contributions from poet Jon Jorgenson. The album is unusual in that the music and words feel distinctly apart but also very well suited to each other. Upon first listen nothing seems to work, but upon a quick second listen the endeavour seems perfectly natural. Quite fascinating.
It also means that the first track that Common Man Music has released since, titled ‘In The Valley’, is a back to basics enterprise in many ways. An instrumental, the track focuses on creating meaning through abstration and emotion. And highly successful it is too. Now if someone would just tell Common Man Music, that if he made himself more visible online, all us music journalists would be extremely grateful.
