Album Notes
After participating in the creative renaissance sweeping through Portland, OR, I felt a restless urge to hit the road. The insistent echo of the future took me from my pillow to a stand of evergreens, it drew my eye up to the floating branches, and it pulled from me the wish for a time of wandering.

"Sun River" is the essence of my time in Portland, wandering from city nights in the theatre, to idle daydreams, and isolated evening meditations.

"Not to be overlooked are whiz-kid composer Kyle Acheson’s musical contributions. [H]is recorded pieces are credible enough to blend into a mixtape alongside David Byrne and The Pixies. Acheson’s growing list of collabs demonstrates an emerging niche for Portland’s overflow of songwriting chops. Commandeering theaters has worked in prior seasons for troubadour Holcombe Waller; here’s hoping more great songwriters continue to flow away from noisy bars toward this more attentive forum." - A.L. Adams, Oregon ArtsWatch 2013

Thanks to my collaborators, Nicholas Erickson (bass, slide guitar, found sound, mixing, mastering), Shohei Kobayashi (piano, organ), Sam De Roest (mandolin), Hunter Sharp (artwork), Wayne Haythorn & Nathaniel Stoll (found sound), Cristina Cano, and the generous staff at the Westminster Presbyterian Church. This album was made for friends in Portland, and for the glory of the Free Nation of Cascadia.
