Coast to Coast
UK folksinger Rupert Wates makes his American debut with Coast To Coast: Postcards From America, set for release in February 2008. After several albums as artist and/or songwriter in Britain, Wates brings his melodic folk to the States with a group of new songs, written during his travels across North America, from NYC to Santa Fe to California. Recorded in London, Paris, and Seattle, Coast To Coast is a musical road trip. It displays Wates' gift for melody, as well as his wit and sincerity, focusing his novelist's eye on American geography and politics, capturing moments and movements. Potent melodies and strong hooks are delivered by a seasoned hand, letting the songs speak for themselves.
