~~this is a very rough translation sorry about that. i will have a better one up soon.~~




Alexinder Gunn may have been singing that folk music is dead, but as long as there are talented Alexinder's walking, richly from exhaustive own emotional life, runs this genre provisionally no risks. Alexinder loves Jack Kerouac and westerns, Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan, Damien Rice and Eva Cassidy. In his first solo album would be sporadic echoes to capture, among other influences. Melancholy and desire are inherent to his songs, all of which he wrote himself. He also producing this album, which he tackles two jobs simultaneously and Live occurred where he could. He comes from Fredericksburg, Virginia, and after wanderings in the club of Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey followed with performances at festivals as crowning the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival this year. In his songs, it processes liefdesthema's, hartzeer, bitterness and desire, the whole gamut of gemoedsschakeringen. He waadt if it were in troubled waters, reaching down to vertroosting or salvation. In 'Cold Water Comin' he screams with a passionate singing style, strange for a young singer-songwriter, barely twenty passed. That intensity declares himself "as being caught by the music ', a disease that affects him from a young age digested. His decision to be a musician was already down when he saw six-year age Garth Brooks singing and Bob Dylan's "Hurricane" meant absolutely a revelation. First he made a detour through 16 years at a rockbandje to be closed. And with a local band from Stafford he made the CD "Mercy" when he was 19. But the direction he is taking, stands for him as the right, is aversion to loud music, metal and hardcore. For the guidance of his songs makes himself tortured with electric or acoustic guitar, harmonica, keyboard and drums, sometimes orchestral through. The reverberation of his voice often stresses the desolate, as in 'The Streets Of This Town' with a nostalgic appeal. Also 'Leavin' Home 'goes to the throat because of the defenceless incorporated doorschemert. In that sense, he leans more to the bluesbeleving, than in the folkballades example of Woody Guthrie. Al brings Alexinder in "I Know Your Here 'a eigensoortig eretribuut with this folktroubadour. Alexinder you can see as the young version of Martyn Joseph of Peter Case, though his lyrics betray a maturity, unusual for a eenentwintigjarige. 'Folk Music', it's in the Voice and the Mind Of Alexinder Gunn. Bijlange not yet dead.
