Time in the Middle
About Acoustic Son -Acoustic Son is a San Francisco based band blending the style of Fleetwood Mac with a taste of Dave Matthews for a uniquely enjoyable acoustic sound. With voices rich as heavy cream, singer/songwriters Ken Kingsbury and Carolyn Shaw entertain with a strong repertoire of original songs. Acoustic Son's live shows always sparkle with melodic, driving energy. With songs driven by the emotionally-tinged education of a passionate life, Acoustic Son's new CD, Time in the Middle, is an harmonic journey that takes you through heartfelt ballads and richly textured melodies. Produced by Bonnie Hayes, and featuring some of the Bay Area's finest musicians, Time in the Middle, captures all of the energy of Acoustic Son's live shows and adds all the clarity, permanence, and soulfulness that make up a great CD. Acoustic Son began at a Thanksgiving gathering in 1999 while singing improvs around the dinner table. They soon began to play at open mics and were asked to be the featured band at the historic Hotel Utah. Acoustic Son has played many venues in the San Francisco area, including: 19 Broadway, Hotel Utah, the Bazaar Café, Cafe du Nord, Pat O'shea's, Pioneer Saloon, Cafe Amsterdam, Ireland's 32, the Cannery, the Curve, Caffe Trieste, Rasellas, and Thee Parkside. Acoustic Son has also performed at many music festivals and fairs playing orginal music along with a wide range of covers, putting their distinct interpretations on songs from artists such as Sheryl Crow, Neil Young, Ben Harper, and many more!
