The Acoustic Sessions Vol 1 is an album that celebrates the happy marriage of memorable melodies and well-crafted lyrics, wrangled by tasty vocals that rope in the listener on the very first note. These semi stripped-down productions, in the easy spirit of a Nashville songwriters night, present Maier at his story-telling best. Folk, bluegrass, country, and soft rock tracks, with their catchy grooves and hooks, will ride around in your head long after you stop listening…. J. Book.
