    Album art: Alfred Richard Gurrey Sr. He was a seascape painter of Hawaiian maritime settings. Though my concept reflects my experiences exactly opposite geographically, I found this painting to conjure exactly the essence of what I intend with my work.

about

This is my first original album in five years! Yes, it's been long overdue! I have always had an affection for the sea, and anything maritime. On this album, which I had initially recorded as one long 38 minute story, I tell my personal journey of a full day on the eastern shore of the Atlantic, where I had grown up, and spent many long hours fishing, walking, swimming, contemplating in solitude and simply connecting with one of the greatest resources God has blessed this planet. Long live the sea and it's ageless mystery and infatuation which men have with it.

I have broken the 38 minute song into segments, each telling it's own story. You can listen to one segment as it's own individual song. This lengthy composition is actually a guitar concerto, which is why it came to fruition as such a long piece, for it tells a story and I desire to have additional instruments accompany me eventually. Lastly, I included two additional songs not on the concerto,"Blissful Interlude on the Ocean Swell", and "Paradiso". This album as of it's release is only available for digital download via Bandcamp .

Enjoy the journey !
Thanks everyone so much for all your support!!!! It means a lot!!

"To me, the beauty of John Tinger's music lies in its visual depth, the wisdom of its texture. Each piece is a world in its own right, evoking wide open spaces, enchanted gardens, eternal waters, from which emerges the brilliant, urging voice of a seasoned storyteller. John has become an inspiration to my work as a filmmaker."
