Album Notes
Acorn Project
As a six-piece ensemble featuring saxophone, guitar, slide, keyboards, bass, drums, and percussion, Acorn Project produces an irresistibly unique sound. The band’s funk-infused progressive rock draws their audience inward with their performance, infecting each individual with their ability to blend seemingly limitless musical styles into their own character. Formed in 2004, this Bellingham, WA based sextet has rapidly built a following across the Pacific Northwest. Having shared bills with seasoned professional acts such as Widespread Panic, Flowmotion, Garaj Mahal, RAQ, Zilla, The Bridge, Bump, The Living Daylights and more, Acorn Project seems destined to play music for the masses. With their new album “We’ll Be Fine,” receiving great reviews from around the nation and airplay on 600+ CMJ stations nationwide, the band is experiencing new momentum. A rigorous west coast tour schedule for the remainder of 2008, festival appearances this summer, and an increased tour schedule slated for 2009 are all reasons to watch for Acorn Project as they continue to grow and push for national exposure.

Acorn Project
We\'ll Be Fine
by Stephanie Ashton

May 2008 Cover
Though it presents an impressively grand departure from 2005\'s Odd His Sleepy Soar, Acorn Project\'s latest offering, the nine-song We\'ll Be Fine, still captures the trademark smoothness and funk that has made them a Bellingham favorite. This time around, the addition of a second guitar player has naturally lent a much stronger rock current to the album, and the band as a whole appears to have embraced a more aggressive approach to making music.

It\'s clear that the band has become more confident, as the album comes off as simultaneously more playful and more controlled than their first; elements such as echoing vocals and a much greater level of orchestration are surprising upon first listen, but so flawlessly executed that the listener doesn\'t realize the great degree of chance the band is taking on. As a whole, the greater nuances within each song allow the band to experiment with several different styles of music while still maintaining strong cohesion; intricate guitar work paired with a smattering of saxophone float to the top of each song and are truly a delightful combination.

We\'ll Be Fine includes one older song – a revisiting of \"Stomp,\" one of the knock-out tracks from Odd His Sleepy Soar, and it\'s here that we are really shown how sophisticated Acorn Project has become. Elements that worked wonderfully before are shown again, and in this case, the juxtapositions of tempo are so refined that instead of being a song that runs simply from beginning to end, it comes across as a fully formed thought with a period at the end – somehow, something has clicked and now fits together perfectly.

The same can be said about the album as a whole; We\'ll Be Fine demonstrates a perfect balance of whimsy and work ethic and it\'s precisely the ability to keep things so effortlessly composed that ensures Acorn Project a lot to look forward to.
