Product Notes

It's a familiar story, in some ways, of boy-meets- instrument. A young man sits in his room, practicing guitar. His parents are gone for the day, so nobody reminds him to stop what he's doing and eat. "Before I knew it in those days, 12 or 16 hours had gone by," says Josh Buskirk. "I'm sure my parents thought I'd lost my mind." The slight, quiet and sometimes self-effacing Buskirk is the kind of guy who grabs your attention with his playing, not his manner. Spend any amount of time with the 25-year-old resident of Parkersburg and it becomes clear that his instrument is his life. "They say there are two types of musicians, "he said. "There are those that like music, and there's people like me who are less cool about it and love their instrument. I love the guitar." Sparkle and structure are two words that come to mind when hearing some of Buskirk's original work from his debut CD "It Always Rains on Sunday." Engaging melodic ideas combine with the distinctive twangy propulsion of the 12-string guitar on tracks like "A Thing" and "Waltz?" The disc features nine other original tunes, including "L.T.D.," a piece that Buskirk says is the first music he ever heard in his head. "Everybody has a beat, and that tune is mine," he said. "I carried that idea in my head for as long as I can remember. One day, it finally made it's way out to the guitar." -Laura Harbert Allen Allen is the music director for West Virginia Public Broadcasting, where she hosts and produces "Music in the Afternoon" and "In Touch with the Arts."
