Intimate stripped-down set highlights songwriting, guitar work

Produced with Michael League of Snarky Puppy

When David Crosby released Croz in 2014, it had been two decades since his last solo album. But now, only two years after that robust, full-band effort, the 74-year old returns with Lighthouse, an intimate, stripped-down set that highlights Crosby's instantly recognizable voice, incisive songwriting, and incomparable guitar work.

"To create brand new music that I'm excited about is a pearl beyond price," says the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee.

Lighthouse features a rare economy of sound, filled primarily by Crosby's voice and guitars, and Michael League of Snarky Puppy's skillful production. There's a sparse, unvarnished quality to the tracks that allows the songs breathing room.

On album opener, "Things We Do For Love," written for his wife of nearly 40-years Jan, Crosby's vocals reflect a poetic tenderness. On "Paint You A Picture," a cinematic tale of romantic regret co-written with Marc Cohn ("Walking In Memphis"), they are filled with remorseful resignation. The longtime social activist lands his political punches as he bitingly condemns the craven politicians who send other people's children to war on "Somebody Other Than You," and compassionately reminds us that we are all the same on "Look In Their Eyes," a poignant tale about immigration inspired by the Syrian refugee crisis.

Striking on Lighthouse is Crosby's piquant guitar playing, which is as inventive as always, but never flashy. By turns gentle and caustic, his work here surprised even him as he discovered new tones. "I put a guitar in a strange tuning and I see what I find," he says. "It gives you different inversions of the chords and it gives you different sounds."

Crosby and League recorded the album at Groove Masters, the Santa Monica studio owned by Crosby's longtime pal Jackson Browne. League co-wrote half the songs on Lighthouse, with Crosby.
