The New Album from Guitar Virtuoso Gerhard Daum
Review of Songs Without Words by Bill Binkelman
Following on the heels of his acclaimed previous album Rural Renewal, German guitarist Gerhard Daum’s Songs Without Words takes the listener on a journey of discovery with the electric guitar as the tour guide, so to speak. As Gerhard writes in the liner notes: “For me personally, music is the definite language of expressing stories, creating emotions, and capturing the diversity of the world we live in. This album’s instrumental compositions embody and illuminate the things I love to do – composing, orchestrating, and performing as a solo artist. Each song demonstrates the electric guitar’s eloquence and diversity as a powerful lead instrument in moderntimes.”
Songs Without Words is a sensational album, presenting the electric guitar in a myriad of moods, styles, and attitudes, all brilliantly performed by Gerhard Daum, an artist with both artistry and soul in abundance.
