Album Notes
Performed on his road-beaten Gurian guitar and a 1931 National Steel, Mark Viator presents Wire & Wood, an album of solo acoustic guitar. This song cycle winds its way through earthy, intimate fingerstyle guitar pieces, slide showcases and meditative rambles. Viator has assimilated the styles of people like John Fahey, Ry Cooder and the Hawaiian slack-key masters, to present his own take on American acoustic guitar, folk in origin but deeply reflective and expressive in delivery. A mature and simple offering from this veteran soundtrack composer.

"These songs develop their own sense of balance with a unique mystery and flow, like taking a walk somewhere you’ve never been … it’s familiar but still new." --Rick Poss, Austin session guitarist.
