Release Date: Oct 28, 2016
Record label: New West Records
A road-tested guitarist who's played for bands such as New York Dolls and Drivin' n' Cryin', and a singer/songwriter with a decade's worth of EPs under his belt, Aaron Lee Tasjan was armed with honed skills and stories to tell by the time New West Records offered to release his second LP, Silver Tears. The album follows a self-released full-length by a year, which in turn followed his relocation from New York to East Nashville. Tasjan's command of traditional country, folk, blues, and all related rock hybrids seems well-suited for Music City; he blends elements of these genres with a distinctly '70s songwriting manner that can recall the likes of Harry Nilsson, Robbie Robertson, and Randy Newman, among others, on Silver Tears.
