TOM LAVERACK: Gift Horse

Gift Horse is a survivor's story. One's redemption, or if you will, revenge, comes from plain perseverance, and through this fleeting connection to others. Life itself may well be the gift, even while it appears to be the source of our suffering

Gift Horse is Tom Laverack's second solo album, produced by Gideon Egger, mastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Studios, and featuring musicians, Jeff Langston, Chad Sonenberg, Gideon Egger and renowned guitar virtuoso, Marc Shulman.

Gift Horse is a product of both self-reflection and a fascination with the marginal experience at the edges of society.

The songs tend to contemplate the meaning in suffering and misfortune, perhaps following the logic that maladies, disorders and loss, have equal beauty and resonance as their diametric opposites. In this spirit, the album is a celebration at, or near, the end of the line. There is a tender will for life even within those bent on self-destruction.

Gift Horse is a survivor's story. One's redemption, or if you will, revenge, comes from plain perseverance, and through this fleeting connection to others. Life itself may well be the gift, even while it appears to be the source of our suffering. In the end, the album can only contemplate this paradox, and celebrate a flawed human spirit as a triumph in and of itself.
