VJohn Palumbo's fifth solo album, Hollywood Blvd, arrives via Carry On Music. An artist at the top of his game, Palumbo - the acclaimed lead singer and chief songwriter of the razor-sharp rock collective, Crack The Sky - serves up an even dozen of finely crafted and expertly recorded gems on Hollywood Blvd. Palumbo plays all the instruments on Hollywood Blvd himself, sans a number of key acoustic and electric slide guitar contributions from his Crack The Sky bandmate, Bobby Hird. Produced and created at Palumbo's home studio, Hollywood Blvd was mastered by longtime CTS associate R. Lee Townsend at Real Time Studios. The earwig-inducing sonic avenues and cleverly winding wordsmithed roads that comprise Hollywood Blvd continue to cement Palumbo's status as a shrewdly observational songwriter in the vein of Leonard Cohen and Lou Reed.
