New Latitude – Wood, Steel, And Grace

The group New Latitude consists of guitarists and composers Dave Erickson and Jim Carr. Their collective debut album is entitled Convergence (2014). Their sophomore project Vantage Point (2017) is now followed by their third album Wood, Steel, And Grace (2020).

Both guitarists are joined on the new album by Deon Kuhl (drums & percussion) and Robert Strickland (upright bass). New Latitude is comparing themselves with the music of Acoustic Alchemy, California Guitar Trio and Dominic Miller.

The guitar duo has a certain affinity for the European alps because two of their songs are named by the Central European mountain range. The beginner is Alpine Bliss, a song with the appeal of an awe inspiring sunrise. The well-rehearsed team manages to achieve an incredible harmony. The high recording quality is also remarkable, with many nuances being audibly displayed.

The opener Springtime offers an undercurrent of joy in abundance. Two guitars in perfect pitch and harmony allow to fly your dream. The Journey shows more of the acoustic consonance of both instruments finding ways into the sonic unison with wonderfully gentle phrases.
