Dan Shuman's self-titled debut provides a 6-song glimpse into the workings of Shuman's personal brand of creative pop. The ethereal voicings of the album's opener, 'Listen to the Underground' sparkle against a singing hammond and a two-part vocal harmony. 'Campeon' is a catchy British rock manifesto by way of Dayton, Ohio. An improvised open section breaks up the straightforward eigth note drive of 'She is the Vessel'. Anders Nilsson's reverb-soaked guitar weaves an ECM-like color to open 'Ride', a pining ballad with an optimistic heart. Find out what this songwriter/singer/guitar player-by-way-of-jazz-bassist Brooklynite has to offer.
