The Quiet

by Chris Falson



“For Many years people had been asking me , ‘do you have an album with just your voice and your guitar?’ My answer has always been a resounding no, and up until very recently I had absolutely no desire or plans to make such an album. Strange though it may seem I feel quite naked and vulnerable (and quite nervous) performing on my own and yet it is often during these (odd) occasions strumming to my own voice that I experience a unique sense of peace and freedom. I had always considered myself primarily a band musician, enjoying the creative support of other musicians. However, I have somehow found an enjoyment over the past eighteen months playing solo and have actually discovered a new way of expressing myself as an artist. And so I gradually softened to the idea (with the help of my wife’s constant urging) of this ‘just me and my guitar’ project. During a season of rest (which really means I had no work) my friend Chris Rich called up to say that he had a few days open in his studio. I explained the idea of a quiet album and he said, “let’s do it!” Days later, armed with a few guitars, I drove over to his studio “The Shed” and in two very lazy days we recorded and mixed this album. Mostly new with a few old favourites, these are some of the songs that I like to sing to myself when in pursuit of ‘the quiet’.”
