Graham Sharp - Truer Picture
Cat. no: CDYEP2796
Release Date: 9th July 2021
Graham Sharp has made a name for himself as the chief songwriter and a founding member of the GRAMMY-winning Americana group Steep Canyon Rangers.
As the world entered lockdown in 2020, Sharp began to draw inspiration from a wellspring of emotions. On his first solo album, Truer Picture, the songwriter tackles difficult feelings of isolation (‘Come Visit My Island’) and addresses the ever-topical political unrest we continue to see in the country (‘My Neighborhood’).
Sharp’s unique style of songwriting is apparent on Prime-esque songs like ‘North Star’’ and ‘Coming Back to Life,’ and the lush instrumentation on tracks like ‘Deeper Family’ (featuring harmony vocals from The War on Drugs’ David Hartley) illustrates the stark sonic differences between Sharp’s solo work and his music with Steep Canyon Rangers. What we’re given is a raw portrait of one of the finest songwriters of our time, a truer picture of Graham Sharp.
