London, ON is where percussive fingerstyle guitarist Michael Trudgen calls home. His latest release is last year’s full-length All the Pretty Things, a 12-track album on which Trudgen’s smooth style easily transcends a number of genres, including folk, bluegrass, and pop-infused rock. He also incorporates a full band on many of the tracks, which brings them into a new sonic dimension.

Where the bulk of today’s songwriters and musicians rely upon words to help paint effective pictures for the listener, crafting instrumental music that is both compelling and captivating is no small feat, yet it’s something that Trudgen has done remarkably well on his latest collection.
