Detail of cover art for Soft Power (2012)

Soft Power (2012)


Released as a digital single with “Union Square” in 2012.

Not related to the “concept developed by Joseph Nye of Harvard University to describe the ability to attract and co-opt rather than coerce, use force or give money as a means of persuasion.” (Wikipedia)

Recorded in 2011 along with other tracks that were to be my fourth album. The project was eventually abandoned. A few more tracks from those sessions may be released in 2013.

December 2013: Yeah, that didn’t happen. There are at least four nearly-finished tracks in the can from 2010-2011, and many more less complete ones. There are no plans to do anything with them as of now.

“Soft Power” was used in the above video: “A la calle en tiempos de crisis, Madrid 2012.” Interestingly, it seems only the left channel, because the slide guitars are missing.

“Soft Power” and “Union Square” are available for download (name your price) at Bandcamp.
