Greg Laswell: Landline

Map Unavailable



New York-based songwriter Greg Laswell will release Landline on April 24th, 2012 (some sources say May 8th), an album that taps the vocal and creative power of Sia, Elizabeth Ziman (of Elizabeth and the Catapult), Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson. Hearing his preview track “Come Back Down” which he released to the blogosphere a few weeks ago, I was surprised and very impressed by how his sound has evolved since 2010′s Take a Bow. The unofficial master of sweeping, wildly romantic ballads (many of which have found homes on Grey’s Anatomy finales), Laswell presents a happier urgency on this preview. I’m quite curious to see how composition-visionary Sia comes through. Thoughts?
