Determination / Kluso aKoustic

KLUSO returns after a four year hiatus with a new full length collection; featuring KLUSO's "songwriter-singer" oriented format reminiscent of his classic solo acoustic live shows including a handful of never before heard originals. Hints of pop and alternative country flavor the landscape but the main focus remains the Americana style that has become KLUSO's moniker. Early Winter Daze sets the opening scene for this compilation that winds through the life-oriented focus of KLUSO's lyrics and melodies; from Singer's languid observations of the importance of a particular song as a companion to our sorrows, to Mississippi Run's token to the persistent cycle of life's troubles, and Sakura Moon's evocative accounting of the caring but sometimes tense relationship between father and adolescent daughter growing into adulthood. The Stand launches KLUSO's call for dialogue about our human condition in the context of world events, followed up by Fallow Fields (the Face of War), which has gained acclamation on Neil Young's Living with War homepage (www.neilyoung.com/lwwtoday). Two remixes from KLUSO's debut CD Delicate Eye (2006) are also available with a pure acoustic version of Since You Been Gone and a remix of one of KLUSO's favorites Paradise Road. No One Else Like You highlights an atypical KLUSO pop piece reminiscing about "young love". And, as a special thanks to his fans, KLUSO included the prized single release of his timeless version of the Oasis anthem Wonderwall. All music and lyrics by KLUSO, with special acknowledgement to fellow songwriter and friend Vince Constantino for his piano arrangement and performance on Sakura Moon. Also, thanks once again to friend Bill Anders - http://billanders.smugmug.com - for his beautiful cover photo art (S-Fern).
