With sophisticated arrangements and unique instrumental choices through her partnership with producer and musician Rob Halverson, Libby’s songwriting maturity shines. Halverson’s quirky use of instrumentation together with Libby’s creative songwriting and vocal acrobatics create new sounds reminiscent of the creative input of George Martin. Rob and Libby’s production and songwriting talents combine to create dark, intimate story with subtle, yet surprising sounds that become more pronounced with each new listening. U2’s Bono said to Elvis Costello in an interview that “intimacy is the new punk rock.” If that is true, then Libby Kirkpatrick re-emergence post-motherhood with “Heroine” places her square in the middle of the post-punk Intimacy music genre.

“This Austin-based songstress possesses a clear voice that weaves itself unexpectedly through a melody, and a firm command of acoustic guitar... she easily shares the lineage of Joni Mitchell, Rickie Lee Jones, or Ani DiFranco." —Carrie Havranek, The Village Voice, NY


Darin Layne Trio

"The Fisherman" $15.00 including shipping (USA only)

Buy at CD Baby

 

“The Fisherman” , which was recorded live with no overdubs, reflects his originality and versatility. Intended to be a double album, the first half represents a more introspective “ECM” style, while the second half brings a more aggressive rock flavor. In sum, Layne shrewdly melds chops and poise with a sophisticated approach, all firmed-up by the rhythm section’s compassionate support.

“Austin’s Darin Layne and his confident fingers fly across the fretboard, then the next minute he might choose to calmly caress the neck of chosen guitar. His latest CD “ The Fisherman” takes a jam-band approach to his signature jazz sound, fusing the styles of Pat Metheny, John Scofield and Grant Green with his own originality”
