Weekly Match is a weekly series highlighting a song, album, artist etc that doesn’t really fit in with the usual posting on the MatchMusik. This lets me sift through my music collection each week & pull something out that may be a little older, or that slipped through the cracks, and bring it back for all of you to enjoy.
Singer-songwriter Dave Gerard heads up the acoustic folk collective, Dave Gerard & The Watchmen, as they meld traditional folk styles with more modern, alternative sounds. I Climbed A Tree was the first of their projects that I heard; laced with lap steel guitars, e-bowed banjo, intimate vocals, mandolin and even a harp, the 10 song EP is just amazing. As an added bonus, I Climbed A Tree is currently available for free download. It will not disappoint.
