With his increasing rock triumphs, growing fan communities and formidable body mass, Workman has evolved from the slight, pin-striped oddball with a critically-acclaimed diamond voice, to the panoramic, guitar-punishing superstar with no performance limits. After the success of 2003's Lover/Fighter, the adoring battlefield was cleared and swords were beaten into plowshares.
Now Workman invites the audience to listen with wide-eared wonder at something as simple and earnest as a Treeful Of Starling. This, his latest album in a career of far-reaching achievement, is a return to what motivated him as a musical artist in the first place. As he puts it, "an exercise in remembering what it is about music that is important to me." From this mission statement comes an album of remarkable directness and breathtaking beauty that clings to home truths and heartfelt emotions.
