Eponymous viaSound EP: lush and emotional acoustic music



If someone could empower you to slowly fall into a beautiful well, deep in mystery, and envelop you in fragile emotions, it would probably be like listening to an acoustic duet. viaSound. Sometimes hauntingly beautiful and poignant delivery, the eponymous EP is rich in space and depth. Lyrically, the songs are a rich tapestry of emotion, with splashes of colorful images.

This EP oscillates between the melancholy found in much of the music of singer-songwriters and light flirtations with pop and pinches of jazz. The strongest track here is “Once Upon”, lyrically reflecting the themes of current life and sounding the impressions you would expect from an uncertain landscape. They also deliver a beautiful cover of the old witty “Wayfaring Stranger”, picking up the tempo with “Later I’ll Rest” and ending with an alternative country-inspired tune, “Frank and the Rose”.

The viaSound duo is made up of Greg Miller and Angel Itenchi, both music graduates from Berklee College of Music and Cornish College of the Arts, respectively. Inspired by the ferries, woods and waters of Puget Sound, the viaSound combination of his guitar and voice makes for an enjoyable listening experience.
