Product Notes

TRUE NATURE Written by Music Journalist Mark Fisher of 1340Media.com Music, at it's best, is a messenger. While it can definitely entertain, impress, and even demand, the moments of longing are what we truly connect with. We long for something bigger than ourselves. We long to make the connection, - one that transforms music from mere catchy-relevance into something truly meaningful. Music that gently weaves longing, hope and love, with powerful sonic beauty, and in the process reveals who we truly are. This is True Nature. Hailing from New York City, True Nature made waves this year at rock's pre-eminent festival, SOUTH BY SOUTH WEST, gaining international attention with their lyrically contemplative, musically intense approach. Singer/ songwriter/ guitarist Lou Barlow, a recipient of NYU's prestigious Composer of the Year award, reaches far beyond the conventions of most modern rock artists. Barlow journeys to spiritual plateaus akin to those of artists such as U2, Alanis Morissette, Sting, Sinead O'Connor, and Seal, while carving a niche that is undeniably True Nature. "I find it a strange time because we, as people, have more questions about reality then ever before and yet we are very touchy about getting into anything that's real," says Barlow who dives headfirst into reality with each lyric as the atmospheric, melodic guitar sounds of co-writer Dave Zwieback swirl ominously around the listener. "My desire is to inspire meaningful exchanges with people and a song is often a powerful way to open that door for a deeper level of exchange," says Barlow. For their recently released, self-titled EP True Nature were joined by drummer Doug Yowell (Duncan Sheik, Suzanne Vega), bassist Jeff Allen (Duncan Sheik) as well as keyboardist Daniel Mintseris (Marianne Faithful). Produced by the sought after Mike Harvey (Seal, Steely Dan, Stevie Wonder) and co-produced by Christian Cassan (David Byrne), the EP boasts a powerful sound that reveals multi tiered craftsmanship & depth upon each repeated listening. The timeless classic "Already Here" from the EP has already received acclaim as a top 10 finalist in the International Songwriting Competition's Rock category, where it has been judged by the legendary Tom Waits, among other notables. The band's radio friendly, real life songs range from the exciting power-pop hooks of "Only Love Is Real," to the haunting and victorious sound of "Dissolve," momentarily pausing for the sobering ballad "Dance With Me Again." "When we perform, I distinctly see people kind of stop in their tracks, because we are offering something different for them to relate to," states Barlow enthusiastically. In a music world dominated by stale, commercialized bands True Nature is a breath of fresh air. The combination of award winning producers and engineers and some of rock's most respected musicians is undeniably brilliant, but when it is all stripped down only one fact remains-this is great songwriting. True Nature is meaningful, mature...and perhaps even timeless. Take a listen and decide for yourself.
