(NOTA BENE: The Irish Session will not be held tonight- moved to Tuesday March 7.)
Wisconsin-born songwriter JOHN STATZ is working on a new recording project, the follow-up to his acclaimed TULSA, produced by JEFFREY FOUCAULT. John describes what this endeavor may include.
“I have been writing love songs lately, specifically about the kinds of romantic love that burn. Namely, all of them. When we first enter a new relationship we are filled with burning desire. Sometimes we later take those same relationships for granted and seemingly burn right through them. At the end we might find ourselves literally burning old love notes, or simply bridges, which turns out to be an excellent time to listen to that fire in our bellies. Hit the road, see something new, spend time on ourselves before striking a new match.”
What people say:
“John Statz writes songs you can’t shake. They follow you around all day and run through your head at 3 a.m. Open hearted, horizon-line songs.”– Jeffrey Foucault”
Statz uses the spaces in between the lyrics to cast his haunting spell of longing and lost ways.” – Guitar World’s Acoustic Nation
“John writes the kind of songs that float through your mind, seeking purpose and stay nestled in your thoughts long after listening.” – American Songwriter
“…lush melodies and a sense of time, space and place dominate his work, creating a sound that stops the listener in his or her tracks and once there, holds them spellbound… More than merely a set of songs, it holds together conceptually, making it the kind of album that figures to be a landmark of sorts in Statz’s still smoldering career. It’s simply that good.” – PopMatters
“This is a modern musical travelogue; a diary of different moments and places, captured in words and lyrics…HIGHLY RECOMMENDED” – PopDose
“John Statz follows a guitar echo over the open plains of Oklahoma to reach into ‘Tulsa’, the title track from his upcoming release. Once the tale catches up with the slow echo of rolling rhythm rumble, it starts to head west out of the Sooner state.” – The Alternate Root (named “Tulsa” a “Top 10 Song of the Week”)
