Garrick Rawlings' self-titled new release is a wonderful culmination of his Midwestern roots blended with a strong dose of the American Southwest and Southern California.

You can hear his rock roots right along with his acoustic folk. Rawlings and producer Rick Shea, another great songwriter and multi-instrumentalist in his own right, put together a crack band (Shawn Nourse - Drums, Dave Hall - Bass) took his literate lyrics and expressive melodies to heart, and made them soar, each song flowing into the next creating a fascinating journey of an album.

Perla Batalla, who sang, wrote and toured with Leonard Cohen makes an outstanding appearance on the Latin-influenced song, “No Tengo Palabras.” The lyrics are half English/half Spanish Rawlings explains “You can’t live in L.A. without soaking up a lot of beautiful and passionate Mexican music. What I take in usually comes back out in my own songs in some way”.

They recorded the basic tracks as a band, together in a room, and it shows. The arrangements vary from fully acoustic to great blends of electric, slide and steel. Wonderful touches were added, like Skip Edwards’ accordion on a sparse and stark arrangement of “Poncho & Lefty,” where Rawlings restores the original lyrics. “Lost In Time,” a lovely song about a lost love, features a sublime cello accompaniment. The legendary Paul Marshall, of I See Hawks In LA, and Southern California chanteuse Jaimi Lyn Shuey provided gorgeous harmony vocals.
