For many musicians it takes a lot to release one single track to the public. It ends up placing a song in the full spotlight, without the proper context or protection that a full album can provide. It is a daring gamble and a show of sincere dedication to the song released. For South Florida’s folk singer-songwriter Jason Garriotte, there is no denying his ability to commit honestly to a song, and it is no surprise that he obviously feels very comfortably with wearing his heart on his sleeve with his recent beautiful release titled Dreams.
The song opens with a very Americana sound similar to the inspired track Nuclear by Mike Oldfield. The guitars are softy played along with thoughtful and melodic vocals infused with memorable lyrics worth listening to.
It would seem that Chords Of Truth are here to make an important statement about songwriting with focusing on the details. The piano played in the background is haunting and never overbearing. Everything about the song is dynamic and meaningful, and if this is the direction that Jason Garriotte is travelling, then I am looking forward to sharing the journey when the new album comes out.
