Peyton Pinkerton's solo debut album comes after more than twenty years as well respected and renowned guitarist/songwriter with beloved Indie Rock antiheroes New Radiant Storm King - plus as an integral member of both The Silver Jews and Pernice Brothers.
Guitar geeks marvel at Peyton's absolute mastery of guitar tunings, sounds, arrangements and textures. No other Guitarist can mix a little Nokie Edwards, a little more Dave Gregory and a whole lot of John McGeoch in one album with such a fine result.
Fans of his other work will still find all of the uniqueness, nuance and six-stringed dexterity Pinkerton has come to be known for, and yet there is a marked departure from his work in other projects.
As a songwriter Peyton has the innate and rare ability to take the personal and make it universal; and to take the universal and make it personal. The songs on "Peyton Pinkerton" are some of the strongest he's ever written - angular, hook-filled, heartfelt and yet still stamped with his unmistakable and charismatic sonic intuition.
