Scott Chasolen Writes From The Purest Tragic Heart In Album Living In Limbo 

5 Dec

Living In Limbo expresses the twists and turns of love and every emotion that accompanies that in this reflective album. Listeners should not lump this music alongside your typical heartache anthems. Chasolen’s music is not only raw, but it dives deep on your beneath the surface emotions that aren’t even linked directly to an emotion like happiness, sadness, or anger. With piano ballads that are as mighty as a guitar riff, the album does not fall short instrumentally either. Standout tracks include Limbo and Bluebird on the 12 track list. Lyrics from both of these songs differ greatly and capture two different emotions of love. Limbo describes that feeling where you are on the fence with someone and your heart does not know what to do. Bluebird is unlike any song I’ve ever heard before, painting the bird as one that will get through anything and using the superhero power of strength to overcome obstacles and a reclaiming of their silver sky again. Elaborating a little bit further on the instrumentals on this album include acoustic guitar sections and ever constant piano ballads that are almost symphony like, but pair up nicely with the meaningful lyrics and mood that this set of songs brings the listener.
