Here is the link to the original article, below that is a translation with a few problems. Enjoy!
Singer-songwriter Artie Tobia is an American Americana / roots artist from NY, which since 2001 solo, as a duo or performing with his band. He shall live, and his albums his oeuvre, which is a blend of acoustic rock, country, blues and folk. Artie is a teller of stories, which are often very recognizable and help to better understand your own life.
It took a while before we even got to hear something new from Artie Tobia. His convalescence after an accident took a lot of time, but now he is back with his new studio album "Aberdeen". It's an album with new songs, which he recorded in The Loft Studios in Bronxville, NY, with his band. In the studio he sat with Mark Barden (guitar), Mark Bridgman (bass), Stuart Stahr (drums), Kevin Myers (keys) and Nicole Alifante (backing vocals).
That Artie Tobia a singer-songwriter is interpreted by us from the beginning. He opens with the roots rocker "Kryptonite", the story of a temptress, he somehow came across and made a great impression on him. It is clearly not the "Kryptonite", the fictional substance that lives its own in the Superman comics and in the number, the kingfisher which is based on that we know Chris Barron and his Spin Doctors from 1991. In "Big Bosom Lady "is also about encounters, but with people (often not the most appetizing) along the way. The title song "Aberdeen" is a love story between a wolf and a hawk who, despite their own challenges, never lose sight of one another. The song will acquaint the listener with the complexity of Artie's songwriting, which he put us through the day and the night, the forest and the sky leads. That Artie also can increase the pace, we hear the rockers' Mommy Calling Me "(with Kevin Myers on piano) and the lament of a failed relationship in" River Of Tears ". In the ballad "First He Was My Father" Artie is very personal and he tells us about a sick man, sometimes a cowboy sometimes he was a chief, but always in the first place was his father. Also, "Faces Of War (Ballad Of Johnny Garcia)" is a great ballad, with poignant and truthful song writing about loss and sorrow over all the agv war. With "Boom Boom Boom" the pace is again the height and Artie takes us for a walk, which starts in the center of the city and ends in the forest. The valve is literally (a) "Farewell", a sprawling Latin groove (the backing vocals are sung by Nicole Alifante), the end of a beautiful musical journey ...
Nine years after his album "Chasing The Sun" Artie Tobia went back into the studio and took nine numbers. They are personal stories, some of which you will perhaps recognize there and he wants to share with us. The album is a beautiful and varied album that everyone I very much recommend!
