why we love this

Lush soundscapes arch over a tranquil sky and leave the mind floating in ease, while the front-facing nature of the guitars in the mix ground the listener. Jonny Nash offers a musical gift in the form of Point Of Entry which, akin to its namesake, marks a true point of entry into his exceptional catalog.

about the record

Point Of Entry builds upon Jonny Nash's recent forays of folk traditions while showcasing a clear musical evolution. Across eleven mesmerizing tracks, Nash points the compass gently inwards, casting aside any conceptual frameworks in favor of exploring an imaginative and idealized “personal folk music” that combines elements of traditional acoustic music with the producer’s richly immersive interpretation of ambient, a sound he has been developing for well over a decade.

The album was created using a stream of consciousness approach to writing and recording, with Nash utilizing his favored instrument–the guitar, often doused in atmospheric effects–as a starting point. Throughout, his delicate and evocative playing takes center stage, its melodic lines and finger-picked refrains painting aural images that resonate with positive yet contemplative energy.

Point Of Entry is much more than a mere ‘guitar album’–it draws on a rich and diverse palette to achieve its purpose. The delicate saxophone work of ambient-jazz contemporary Joseph Shabason swells on ‘Ditto’ and ‘Light From Three Sides’. Cascading piano lines ripple through the crystal clear sonic waters of ‘Face of Another’, whilst echoes of Nash’s work with Gigi Masin and Young Marco as Gaussian Curve appear in the dancing synth sequences of ‘Ditto’ and ‘Golden Hour.’ Nash’s reverb-laden voice also appears for the first time since 2016’s critically acclaimed Exit Strategies, used delicately throughout the album to conjure up a world of dusk and golden light.

Combining the delicate human touch and naivety of earlier Melody As Truth releases with widened scope and vision, Point Of Entry is arguably Nash’s most complete work to date–an album that’s as much a statement of his “personal folk” vision as a future ambient classic.
