Pete Kartsounes

The Only Way I Know

Independent

3.5 out of 5 stars

Boulder singer/songwriter Pete Kartsounes wrote in the liner notes of The Only Way I Know that the songs were inspired by his travels among the ocean and valleys of Kauai, the mounts of Colorado and the rivers of Virgina, and even a casual listener can easily hear that in the array of styles that Kartsounes tackles on the release.

Kartsounes, who has played in former Boulder bands Acoustic Semi, Possum Logic and Willis (among others), and has a been a staple in the bluegrass picking community, quite literally travels on this album. From the album’s start with “Sweet Surrender” and its bluegrassy hilt, to the Panic-esque rock and blues of “Takin’ Steps,” The Only Way I Know showcases Kartsounes’ great guitar chops and ample vocal prowess.
