REVIEW: Bill Abernathy “More”


Bill Abernathy – More

Bill Abernathy has a new album recently available, More. All of the tracks on this folk rock album were written by Bill Abernathy.  It is a collection of honest observations and, although it is about much more than love, you might see most of the songs here through the filter of love.  Produced by Larry Gann, the songs are clear and bright.

“It Is What It Is” is an anti – “cancel culture” song, something which everyone can relate to, regardless of political affiliations.

“The 70s Were a Little Hard” is a song about “nasty women of the night who liked to kiss and cuddle,” a little tongue in cheek folk song about the contradictory information we get from adults and society regarding sex and romance and more.  “Can’t you see, the 70s were just a little hard on me.”

“Hide Away” draws down a more serious tone “deception lives in the shadows… you’re deceiving yourself and living a lie.  Why do you hide away?”  Though provoking and sincere.

“More” has heartwarming sustained organ and acoustic guitar in this gentle song of being “lost in this journey searching for you.” As the title track, this is easily also the heart of the album.

“Call Their Name” addresses the current state of affairs — starvation, fear — with a hope for reaching out and helping one another when someone is hurting.   This song and “More” are offered in two versions on the album — a celebration of their centrality.

Musicians on the album are Bill on acoustic guitars and vocals; Kevin Rogers on electric guitars; Craig Kew on bass and fretless bass; Alex Cordero on keyboards and strings; and Larry Gann on drums and percussion.

More was engineered and mastered by Larry Gann; produced by Larry Gann and Bill Abernathy; and recorded at AweStruck Studios with photography and album art by Anderson Artwork.
