George Grove, 21 year veteran banjo player extraordinaire from The Kingston Trio, has given us an inspired performance with his solo recording, In The Middle Of A Life. The album is a fusion of pop, folk, and country with a musical range from simple, acoustic guitar to full arrangements with some of Los Angeles' finest studio musicians. With a gorgeous selection of songs and a themed approach that takes the listener on a journey through one's evolution of mid-life, this album is perfectly designed to capture the ears and hearts of audiences, just like The Kingston Trio performances for which George and the rest of the Trio are known.
George Grove continues to tour extensively with the Kingston Trio, and George, in his solo slot at Kingston Trio shows has slowly been introducing his own unique sound to Trio audiences for the last several years. Now at last George has completed his debut recording, bringing some of George's favorite solo moments together with some songs new to George's repertoire.
From the opening notes of "Darlin," - a song featured on the Acoustic Rainbow Sampler that was sent to over 1,000 acoustic radio programs in August of 1998 - to the closing "If I Ever Had To Say Good-bye To You," George Grove's solo debut CD stands as the opening statement of a musician who has taken his first step into a larger world. George's skills as a singer, instrumentalist, arranger, and producer have come together and taken a dramatic leap forward with the completion of IN THE MIDDLE OF A LIFE, and fans at last can hear the music as George has always meant for it to be heard.
"The production, song selection and musicianship is top-notch! George's vocals have never sounded better."
