What do a beggar, an exile, the mother of a child on the autism spectrum, a photographer, a veteran, have in common? All are part of the entourage on David Arn’s latest cd “Traveler Tales”. Fourteen travelers, each relating their situation through song.
The new album arrives on September 8th. It is pure Americana, a miscellany of folk and soft rock. As everyone’s life is distinctive, each song varies in style to reflect the unique personality of the traveler. Each song is rife with the introspective lyrical quality Arn’s listeners have come to expect.
“Traveler Tales” showcases the talents of these musicians and singers: Tobias Wilson (guitar,dobro, lap steel,bass), Joni Fuller (strings), Raz Ben Ari (guitar), Ian Smith (saxophone, Gladys Knight,Sister Sledge,The Temptations), Jordan McQueen (drums). Kerri Hardwick, Tyra Juliette (Demi Lovato, Pharrell,Ed Sheeran). In addition, Arn plays keyboards and rhythm guitar. Two songs serve as introduction to vocalist Ava Hart.
