June Star goes under the name Andrew Grimm in the real, and he’s a mightily productive practitioner of Americana music. ‘Seven Pieces‘ is taken off his upcoming album ‘How We See it Now,’ which is due out April 16th. It marks his eleventh album in just six years. And not just quantity, there’s quality involved too as ‘Seven Pieces‘ demonstrates – multiple layers of messages appear in the lyrics, whilst the tune is carried by a perfect electric folk-rock arrangement which may have you thinking of The Jayhawks. And if you’re detecting depth in the songwriting that may have something to do with Grimm’s day-job in the halls of academe where he can be found teaching college literature courses.
