about

GIven represents the cream of the crop from his personally penned songs, along with two of Florence's favorite covers: Paul Simon's "Peace Like a River" and Damien Jurado's "Ohio." These gentle nods to two of his biggest influences help flesh out the simple, nine track record. Flecked with folk influences, finger-picked guitar lines and distinctive harmonies provided by his sister Kelly Florence, Given falls somewhere between Sam Beam's hushed, vivid folk and Simon's own conversational, quirky lyrical genius. THe slow-burning hope of "Could Today be the Day" falls into a groove, and contrasts with harmony fanfare and drama on album closer "Kindness." For the more traditional minded, "Shining Shining" is pure pastoral bliss, with bright piano accents and lush harmonies. THrough it all, Florence's understated, warm voice carries the record, wrapping you like a warm blanket on an autumn evening.

"(Kevin Lee Florence) is further proof that the Pacific Northwest has a well of talent that is plentiful and untainted by the assembly line rubbish consistently spewed forth from the mouth of the mainstream music machine". - No Depression

"Once you’ve heard Kevin Lee Florence’s voice for the first time, you’ll never want to remember a time you hadn’t". - The Horn
