What He Said
“You’re not going to want to miss this show. The harmonies alone are going to blow your mind.”
Eugene singer-songwriter and guitarist, Neil Björklund and an all-star crew of merry musicians will present music from Neil’s recordings, Light and Darkness and Flying Canoe, and a collection of covers from Neil’s favorite songwriters.
Light and Darkness, the roots-pop album by Oregon singer-songwriter Neil Bjorklund, features ten original songs. Released in 2011, this set explores the inner landscape of several stages of his life, from the high school look-back of “Yearbook,” to the first love reminiscence of “Hideaway,” to the adult interpersonal politics of “Walk Away.” This musical journey crosses through the territories of roots-pop and folk-pop, with touches of blues, country, and rock.
Bjorklund has been called “James Taylor with edge.” and has been compared with John Gorka and David Wilcox, both for the depth of his songwriting and for the clear and expressive quality of his voice.
