Tonight’s album of the week: STRAND OF OAKS – HARD LOVE


The fifth album from American singer/songwriter Timothy Showalter who records under the SOO name. Moments of personal darkness are threaded throughout Hard Love, but the clarity and strength that Showalter finds when he shrugs off the gloom gives the songs a restless optimism tempered with a belief that the sun will always come up no matter how long your night has been.
