Suave, sophisticated music of the kind usually found over here on Sticky Records. Sort of a whispering, secretive Bruce Cockburn-ish vocal style that's magnetic, with a growing fascination at the intricacies of the artist's complex vocal techniques. Considerable jazz influence in the way Giaconia plays around with a tune, stark, spare backing, in all a listening experience that's innovative with a steady-building tension. The lyrics hint at Christian truth rather than using a crude loudspeaker. Some tracks ("Woman At The Well") are blues-based, with some sweet slideguitar from Chris Carero. One to place alongside recent releases from Brooks Williams and Pierce Pettis as quality rootsy folk-based pop. Hard to classify, easy to enjoy.
