On the follow-up from 2016’s Modern Country, William Tyler moves to the acoustic guitar and delivers a breezy but neatly-sewn collection of songs largely inspired by his move (West) to California from his hometown of Nashville.

These are 10 skilful and meditative instrumental acoustic guitar renderings that bear the weight of Americana – of contemporary America – lightly, but consciously. It’s the sound of confidence in one’s abilities as an artist, one who embraces their restlessness and creativity while sounding like he’s barely breaking a sweat. Tyler’s dexterity in capturing emotion and conveying a story is rather significant under his instrumental hand – a gift that he’s always yielded, but likely now more than he ever has.
