O LOVE is included in the Turnstyled Junkpiled 2014 list for best LA Americana. Thank you Terry Roland! Here's what Terry had to say.
Ernest Troost – O Love
L.A. songwriters don’t come any better than Ernest Troost. A film score composer by day (Tremors) and a singer-songwriter the rest of the time, O Love, is a collection of fully realized songs garnered from the distinctly American tradition of storytelling through song with influences from Appalachia to West Texas. With folk, country and Piedmont blues undercurrents, his original gift of melody and cinematic lyrics call to mind Randy Newman and Paul Simon at their peak with a certain Mississippi John Hurt strain running through his fingers to some rather magical guitar picking.
