NOTES

The Sir Jhon album uses the banjo and/or acoustic guitar as the foundation for each song. From there the production varies drastically. Some tracks call on fuzzed out synthesizers and saxophones while others use a violin or mandolin to complete the mood of the tune. Idiosyncratic lyrics are sometimes quirky and humorous, sometimes insightful or thought provoking. The clarinet, drum set, tongue drum, djembe, cabasa, snake charmer flute, saxophone, synthesizers, electric guitar, flute, violin, mandolin, bass, upright bass, and additional vocalists all appear on different tracks with different feels, yet the album congeals into a unified piece of art.
