Chris Acker - "Odd, Ordinary & Otherwise"
Released August 20th, 2021
Odd, Ordinary & Otherwise,' the third full-length record from New Orleans country-folk songsmith Chris Acker, is a collection of songs brimming with true tales, eloquent songwriting, and fearless honesty.
During his decade-long songwriting career, Chris has explored musical terrain tread by contemporary folk music’s greatest champions: Prine, Dylan, Guthrie, etc. With ‘Odd, Ordinary & Otherwise,’ Acker has forged an unmistakable lyrical style that’s truly his own, containing more reverence than reference to those who came before him. The songs of O-O-O are equally as influenced by months of isolation during COVID quarantine as they are by Chris’ place in the New Orleans dancehall and busking communities in years previous. The album’s thirteen tracks flow gracefully from introspective, quiet tunes worthy of the modern Folk Music cannon, to downright barn burners ready for the dancehall and all the space in between.
