Knoxville, Tennessee native [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Dave Barnes[/lastfm] is bringing fans yet another set of songs on his new album, Stories To Tell. The album is Barnes fifth full length solo record and stays true to the trademark elements and fuse of contemporary rock and country sounds that has made his previous work so successful.
Barnes most recent effort, Stories To Tell, comes just two years after Barnes last record, What We Want, What We Get; and was produced by John Fields, the iconic producer who has been behind the scenes of some of the biggest names in mainstream music such as [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lifehouse[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Switchfoot[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Goo Goo Dolls[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jonas Brothers[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]P!nk[/lastfm].
The production shines throughout the record especially in the seemingly more complex numbers on the album like Mine To Love and Love Will Be Enough For Us. The inclusion of orchestral elements and additional percussion in songs like Mine To Love are where Stories To Tell really shines, as it is a clear credit to not only Fields stellar production, but also Barnes’ ever improving songwriting and musicianship.
If you’re a long time fan of Barnes, definitely don’t wait any longer before you go get your copy of this record; but also don’t rule out picking up Stories To Tell if you’re just looking for some simple, heartfelt folk/rock songs with a ton of passion.
