Over five songs, and a mere 17 minutes of playtime, Boulder by way of Chicago songwriter Dave Tamkin puts forth a collection of tracks that are sophisticated, easy-listening and radio friendly. Full review HERE
In regards to the the new 2017 EP, the recordings themselves sound great, enjoying the tunes! Nice. I dig the mix of Dave expanding sound-wise, but still holding onto elements of the Dave Tamkin signatures here and there. Demons might be my favorite. Some nice lyrics.
- Bryan Adamick of The Struggs
Chicago-born and living in Boulder, Co., Dave Tamkin releases his first set of songs in 5 years with an EP called Cedar. Dave Tamkin continues to establish himself as a growing indie-roots songwriter with a fresh sense of instrumentation, voice, and energy.
I’ve had it on repeat for a week and can declare it the best collection of local tunes I’ve heard in quite some time.
Tamkin has developed a unique style that has converted an acoustic guitar into an eclectic collection of unique sounds that I have never experienced.
