"One of the few albums which warrants the listener to hanging onto the artist's every single word..without exception i found every song totally engrossing...Viesselman is an incisive writer who uses dazzling imagery...there are so many highlights it almost seems unfair to spotlight just one" - Maverick Magazine

about

kreg

After the release of his critically acclaimed album "The Pull", Kreg retreated from touring and recording for four years, during that time relocating permanently in Europe. Then in 2012 his latest record, "If You Lose Your Light" was released by Columbia/Sony Norway.

 

As before, it is his tremendous voice that first commands the listener's attention, with his new material and backing band helping to showcase a greater focus on more colorful melodies and a warmer delivery.

 

To experience his live show is to take in not only a master of delivery at work, but to be invited into an intimate and brightly lit space where you are constantly surprised by the subtle detail in his work, painted in earthen tones, but revealing great contrasts.

It's nakedness yet striking completeness have you transfixed from the moment he opens his mouth - "a soul-deep session of primal therapy", as Mike Butler of "Dyverse Music" described it.

 

It has been called "soul" and "folk", for want of better terms, but "spirit music indeed", as the aforementioned journalist described it, perhaps hits nearer the mark. But whatever one calls it, hearing Kreg Viesselman sing is an intense experience. He deals with humanity in its basic and most instinctive forms, in a style that belies a deep human intelligence and wry wit. His is a narrative voice, at once both brutal and touching, which deserves its place in the canon of great American songwriters.
