Singer/songwriter/guitarist John Land is the real deal. Do you enjoy the true insights and sharing of an artist? Do you miss being wowed, wooed, charmed, and even challenged by what you hear? All is not lost-it's Found. Bringing together the songwriting and musical influences of James Taylor, Nick Drake and Richard Thompson, the 13 songs on Found speak of love, loss, desire, long cold nights, and hope reborn. 'Valentine,' the first track on Found, is a seductive but not overtly suggestive song inviting a partner to make love. Conversely, 'What Love Has Done,' and 'Jealousy Waits' speak of passionate love for a wrong person In 'To The Bug,' John takes a darkly humorous look at the historic Y2K panic, during which people around the world found brief unity in collective dread of an imminent disaster that never happened. . ------------------ ''Found' is a worthy and impressive disc from an artist still seeking his musical path while studiously taking notes along the way.' --RAPID RIVER LITERARY REVIEW 'Land picks a guitar as nicely as he croons. He's a darned good songwriter, too, with keen insights into seduction, workplace crushes, jealousy, spiritual matters, even horses. In other words, Land runs the gamut, gives it his all, and leaves you satisfied.' --ST. PETERSBURG TIMES 'His vocals are warm, rich and clear (in the James Taylor, David Wilcox style) as is are his acoustic guitar licks. He can strum chords or use the fingerstyle with equal skill, and during the rather odd-sounding melody of 'Blood and Sand' do we detect a slide? Regardless of method, John does it with energy and passion.' --INDIE MUSIC.COM 'Skillful and imaginative.' --VICTORY MUSIC REVIEW 'A first-class work.' --ROOTSTOWN MAGAZINE.
