Steve Eulberg, a member of Local 1000 (nongeographic) and Local 6 (San Francisco, CA), delivers his ninth solo recording in what is a return to his acoustic guitar roots.
Between the Tracks is an all-instrumental album featuring fingerstyle guitar and light percussion, with styles including acoustic folk, bossa nova, ragtime, blues, and Americana.
After having his cancerous thyroid removed in 2013, Eulberg turned to his guitar for healing, processing, and expression. In today’s contemporary blizzard of twisted language and misinformation, he says he “recognizes the need for stillness and reflection and offers a collection of eloquent fingerstyle instrumental compositions.”
Featuring his artistry on nylon and steel-string guitars with light percussion, this self-produced project was mastered by Grammy-winning engineer Charlie Pilzer, also of Local 1000.
