The Valley Wind by Tyler Ramsey

It has been four years since Band Of Horses guitarist Tyler Ramsey caught our attention with the beautiful A Long Dream About Swimming Across the Sea. His third solo album continues his songwriting journey. Laidback and dreamlike, the album mixes his plaintive, calming vocals with his honest, story-like lyrics. His guitar playing is expressive, yet unobtrusive and unique. The production hints at a bigger sound, but somehow the album remains stripped-back and sparse. Truly a beautiful release. Highlights include ‘The Valley Wind’ and ‘The Nightbird’.
