A second release from Tom Hoelle with a blend of styles ranging from Blues to Progressive Rock and classic tones from acoustic warmth to electric edge. These tracks are all new and even in their variety, convey a personal touch as only Tom can deliver. A simple blues harp opening, the 1st track quickly takes off down to the The River\'s Edge, where the rapids in double kick rhythms paint the scene behind the trying, introspective lyrics. It\'s classic rock tones in a modern package that\'s been called \'a finely crafted masterpiece of a song\'. Then you may be caught off guard by the sweet acoustic flatpicking of the song 2nd Chance, who\'s shifting time signatures can serve to draw you in before the lyrics plead their case... it\'s sure to win you over! You\'ll find scorching blues with seering, soaring solos in This Too Will Pass, while the tongue-in-cheek Lessons From History keeps your toe steadily tapping. Fingerstyle guitar lovers will enjoy the elegant More! While there\'s a certain warmth and subtle homage in a Lullaby for Seth. There\'s the inimitable Oak Street Shuffle that can only be described as \'jump blues\'... but whatever you call it, it\'s pure fun. Then finally, to round things out, Tom even includes his holiday classic, a Christmas Dream. These and many more are included... eleven songs in all, creating a total package from the creative mind of Tom Hoelle worthy of a good listen anytime, anywhere... in the car, at a party, or while relaxing at home. Give this CD a listen, you\'re sure to enjoy it!
