"Folk and pop songs that explode with hooks in all the right spots...These are songs to file and remember." - iTunes review "(Pacifico) could be huge. He’s part James Taylor, part Duncan Sheik." - M Music & Musicians Magazine Singer-songwriter P.J. Pacifico delivers a confident, upbeat collection of road-tested rock/pop music, on his Viper Records release, ‘Outlet’. With a radio-friendly sound that evokes Gin Blossoms and Matthew Sweet, and a storyteller’s cadence that has been compared to James Taylor, Pacifico appears poised for mainstream success with the new album, his third. The sense of hopefulness and groundedness is palpable, as is Pacifico’s ‘ownership’ of the new material – all of the tracks were performed live for months prior to recording the album, as Pacifico embarked on an extended residency in his home state of Connecticut, often playing as many as four nights per week. The pedigree on ‘Outlet’ is also evident: The album opens with two songs (the singles ‘Fold Up Your Heart’ and ‘Head’s Up’,) both produced by Grammy winner David O’Donnell (John Mayer, James Taylor). This pair of standout tracks also features producer Andy Abel on electric guitars, Jack Daley (Lenny Kravitz) on bass and Brian Doherty (They Might Be Giants) on drums, with Pacifico on acoustic guitar and vocals. Other highlights include the haunting ‘Lakeshore Drive’, the Simon and Garfunkel-esque ‘New Song’ and ‘Home With Me,’ which condenses Pacifico’s decade-long relationship with his now-wife into 4:43 minutes. ‘Outlet’ is his third release, following his sophomore effort, “Always & Everywhere”, and his 2005 solo debut “Well I’ll Be”. His trademark brand of warm, inviting, hook-filled songs, the themes of love and survival, redemption and recovery, have endeared him to a growing number of fans from coast-to-coast. He aims for breakthrough success with ‘Outlet’. His songs feel immediately familiar and comfortable; straight from the heart and sure to get stuck in your head.
