Title - 'Left Unsaid'
Artist - Tapio Ylinen + Tatu Rönkkö & Miikkael Anttila
For those not in the know, Tapio Ylinen is not only the founder of Eclipse Music but is also a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter.
In his songs Tapio channels together the sensitivity of the great singer-songwriters with classic rock sounds, blues guitar and a touch of progressive rock styles.
Educated in both music and the dramatic arts he is an expert storyteller both musically and lyrically.
Released in 2012, his debut album Nuoruus is a true solo effort with Ylinen playing all instruments himself. He followed that up with Brother Come Back (2015) and then his Eläimistä ja Kuolemasta (EP) in 2016.
In addition to his solo work Ylinen is a member of two other bands in the Eclipse Music artist roster: Juhani Valkama’s ensemble and folk rockers Tammela 33100.
Oh, and he also plays guitar with the Pink Floyd tribute band PULSE and works as a freelance radio host.
Tapio's latest album is the quite brilliant storytelling of Left Unsaid and features both Tatu Rönkkö and Miikkael Anttila alongside him.
1. 'Bright Young Star'
2. 'Brother Come Back'
3. 'Life Of A Bird'
4. 'The Great Gamble'
5. 'Noble Heart'
6. 'Snake In The Grass'
This wondrous, earthy new 6-track album begins in fine style with the troubadour reminiscing of 'Bright Young Star' and backs that up with the guitar rock of 'Brother Come Back.'
The beautiful drum-led 'Life Of A Bird' is a most elegant work of music art and, perhaps, one of the best pieces I have heard within this genre in the past decade, and that's followed by the slap bass joy of 'The Great Gamble.'
The new release then rounds out with the melodic yearnings of 'Noble Heart' with the songster once again at his finest balladeer self on 'Snake In The Grass.'
