Our BandCamp Kentucky Find is Seth Ferguson's new release "Man VS Guitar".
Seth's CD takes a turn from the norm. There is no denying Country/Americana is the "in sound" right now in our area. Seth's "Man VS Guitar" is not trying to sound like the latest Country phase it's modern sounding and tells a sometimes sad story. It's dark, full of minor chords and honest lyrics. More therapy than production this 10 song collection of stripped down acoustic songs are well worth a listen. A personal collection of lamenting by a great artist and local music advocate in our area. The stand out song for me is track 10. Old El Paso.
The songs on this album were written during the frigid months of February/March of 2017 in the back seat of a 2009 Powder Blue Kia Rio, as I was working as a security guard at a strip mine in Eastern Kentucky. These were desperate times...my marriage was collapsing and things were just taking a turn for the worst, it seemed. I tried my best to keep this album's collection of songs as simple as possible during the recording process to mirror how they were actually written. Most of the tracks were done in one take, with very minimal overdubs. I needed it to sound like it was coming from the backseat of the mighty Rio. These were very therapeutic songs to write at the time. They saw me through many long cold nights. This is Man Vs Guitar.
