Guy Grogan – “Same Morning Light”

Based out of Santa Fe, NM, Guy Grogan has impressed with rockers in the past like “Stick the Landing” and “I’m the One I Couldn’t Be.” New full-length Same Morning Light pursues a more intimate, folk-centric sound that succeeds swimmingly. The opening, self-titled cut exudes a brooding in the swift acoustics and tortured-sounding vocals, ascending with emotion during the chorus. In addition to this haunting success, other highlights into caressing folk track “Stay on Fire” — which impresses with gentle piano-laden adornments — and soothing effort “When It’s True.”

“This was a special record for me,” Grogan explains. “I mean, they all are, but with this one I really felt like I went deep into the writing and was able to achieve some distance between simply drawing from personal experiences to a broader imagining of someone else’s experiences or feelings and writing from their point of view…less autobiographical, but no less intimate.”
