Self Critical Americana With Aaron Lee Tasjan

Jan 3, 2017

Aaron Lee Tasjan is a songwriter.

That's worth saying because once upon a time he probably would have answered to guitar player. He is that, to be sure, but on his second album "Silver Tears," Tasjan gives the listener a collection of funny, sweet, well crafted and just a little melancholy songs. They are exercises in self examination and self reproachment delivered with a trickster's grin.

While the album production is just on the restrained side of lush, these stripped down versions of two songs (blown tube in the amp!) are proof of Tasjan's ability as a songwriter.

Recorded in Capricorn Studio in Macon, Ga.
