Once An Ocean
- Artist: Reed Foehl
- Format: CD
- Release Date:1/1/2009
New Record - Once An Ocean-- Featuring Members of The Be Good Tanyas. Reed Foehl's new record Once an Ocean pulls together the warm touch of country folk with the edgy honesty intrinsic to modern songwriting -- Foehl's landscape of lush tones and solid songs touches the raw truth of love and tragedy, without sinking into sacharinne sentimentally or cold remove. Once an Ocean features 10 new songs carved from the full range of human emotion. This new release captures Foehl's captivating performance and alluring, enduring songwriting blended with masterful accompaniment and seamless production. Jefferson Hamer, with whom Foehl frequently performs, brings an untamed edge, while Raham's drumming and sound engineering add groove and depth. Ford's breathy, bluesy voice and Klein's essential banjo, harmonica, and singing that hooked The Be Good Tanyas fans complete the rich musical ingredients - elements of country, indie pop and folk-rock - in a perfectly- balanced soup for the soul. A Boston native based in Colorado since 1989, Foehl's third solo release comes on the heels of his acclaimed Stoned Beautiful, a departure from the jam-oriented repertoire of his band Acoustic Junction and his first solo release, Spark. Completed after just three days, Stoned Beautiful presented a no-frills trip "back to the barn" with simple, powerful, direct compositions that caught the attention of new fans nationwide through commercial radio airplay and placements for television. Foehl's sound has continued to develop from these simple roots with co-producers Raham and Hamer, and Once an Ocean reveals a natural, comfortable connection among these creative forces. "I still believe in simple, spirited music made by people together in a room, and the power of a song that transcends the human condition." Foehl's Once an Ocean is all that, with the nuanced voice of a heart long tuned into raw life.
