SAKLAD album Lyrics pdf [Scribd] & Here

    Following his fall ’06 debut release, Yet2B, Larry Saklad has been performing regionally, both in support of those songs, Oh Philadelphia and new writing. This year brings us another collection of fresh recordings, SAKLAD, all relate to finding peace in a decidedly un-peaceful place.
    As accomplished, both on piano and guitar, Larry’s songs reflect an interplay of each instrument weaving counterpoint against the other. This focus shifts throughout the collection and within most songs. His singing also has shifted- earlier known for his plaintive raw passion, he pushes it with gentler intensity. “Oh Philadelphia” articulates contrast along with the resonance of “Tethered”, while “I Been Told” woos us in refreshing harmony with Kim De Meo, also co-writer.
    Contrasts abound, with keyboard textures, electric/ acoustic guitars and drums all providing support for an ever-changing genre. From full-on rock anthems to acoustic ballads and funky-folk pop, Saklad crafts thoughtful and catchy insight about our world, in the light of redefining what is reality/ illusion, as in “Comedy of Errors”. Ultimately, truth lies only within our relationships with each other, and no avoiding God as relates to the mindset of peace.
    Some may say, peace sounds kind of boring, but experiencing SAKLAD’s art is anything but: consider the 1st single,”Salt In My Coffee”!
