Jameson Swanagon - Desolation Happiness

This week’s lesson in intricate, elegant guitar work comes in the form of a new album from Jameson Swanagon, entitled Desolation Happiness. The album is available for purchase now via Bandcamp.

The tracks on Desolation Happiness (all instrumental) shift moods frequently, moving from melodic finger-picking to eerie avant-folk at the drop of a hat. The album successfully exposes Swanagon’s deftness with his craft, both as a performer and a composer.

Outside of his solo work, Swanagon is also the guitarist for Grand Lake.
