It All Started in the Garden is a new album from American singer-songwriter, Dick Aven. He’s also apparently a multi-genre saxophone player and multi-instrumentalist. Needless to say, this album rules. The songs have kind of a classic, 1960s vibe, with elements of folk rock, Americana and psychedelia. The music is just very organic. Production quality is quite good. The mix is nice and bright, and Dick Aven’s vocals project clearly. His performance is brimming with substance and emotional sincerity. My favorite track on the album is No Clue, which features a rich lyrical narrative and colorful melody.
