Truman

Payne Avenue
Artwork

The Minnesota born Singer/Songwriter takes his shot in the spotlight, on his debut release “Payne Avenue” on Geffen Records. While many critics, and probably the label that signed him, are looking to tap into the singer/songwriter craze that seems to be consuming the Adult Alternative market today, Truman’s sound harkens back to the classic alternative sound ushered in by bands like Soul Asylum, noticeable on tracks like “Little Sister” and “All Sides”. Truman still manages to remain fresh and unique on tracks like “Used” and “Girl With A Pearl” mixing melodic tendencies with an organic aura. Payne Avenue showcases Truman’s undeniable ability to write a hook filled song, and backs him with an equally impressive musically delivery. Perhaps Truman’s raw talent and hook filled music will be enough to catapult him into his own, but more than likely Truman will unfortunately be classified under the “John Mayer Era” for years to come.
