Joe Taylor Sutkowski - Of Wisdom & Folly
$10.00 - $30.00

Confident in his vision, though unsure of the outcome, the New Jersey-born songwriter Joe Taylor Sutkowski (Dirt Buyer, Jotay) swiftly constructed a new creative outlet to represent his namesake. In spirit and execution, Of Wisdom & Folly was an effortless and imaginative adventure for Sutkowski as a songwriter. For 10 consecutive mornings, he wrote and recorded a demo for the album, employing only vocals and a nylon-string guitar. “Everything just kind of poured out,” he recalls. “It was as if I already knew what I was going to say once the guitar part was finished.” The characters’ narratives began to intersect and he began to find his stride in telling their stories.

With not a single song passing the three-minute mark, Of Wisdom & Folly is as unassuming as its characters, giving brief and intimate glimpses into the corners of Sutkowski’s rich imagination. Of Wisdom & Folly ends where it began, with Jordan the bottle rocket, the final moments a sonic representation of his launch. In a mix of shining characters and silly moments, Sutkowski’s writing remains established, prepared for an ascension of its own.
