Love + Glory
 
Love + Glory Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $14.00
Artist: Dave Kuchler

RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL!  Born and bred in New Jersey, playing rock and roll in various local bands, Dave Kuchler was also a member of Soul Engines and played on their classic 2001 release "Closer Still" which ranked #173 of the top 200 power pop albums of all time (Shake Some Action: The Ultimate Power Pop Guide).  His first album since the Soul Engines days, 2020’s critically acclaimed “It’s Pronounced…”, saw the track “Slave to Katy” ranked the #3 song of 2020 by the Pop Rocks site.  Recording for “Love + Glory” began in May 2020 at home using some old tracks from an unreleased Soul Engines song (co written with SE’s Mark Nuzzi), "In It With You".  Waylaid by the pandemic in March 2020 and working on the old song was just a diversion when there was nothing else to do except stay home.  A new Gibson J45 and 6 months later, six more songs were written and recording started for real in the Fall of 2020.  Glen Burtnik and Joe Bellia from the Weeklings came in and performed on some of the tracks in September - November 2020 and nine tunes were completed by June 2022.  "I was feeling old in the Spring of 2020, probably like a lot of people, and I started to take a look back at myself and what I imagined others were thinking and feeling when mortality was on the front page every day.  The problem is, I have no interest in writing sad songs so the wool gathering and regrets came out more upbeat than they probably should have. It's a rock and roll record which is all I ever wanted it to be." - Dave Kuchler  Fortunately, “Love + Glory” is jangly, hook-filled roots pop-fest (and we do mean “pop”) at it’s very best!  Think the “Hit The Hay” series of compilations and Gin Blossoms meets early Marshall Crenshaw (and Soul Engines of course) and you’ll get the idea of this BRILLIANT record that most certainly has the potential to chart on more than one 2023 year-end category “Best Of” list!  GREAT!!!
