Text excerpt by American Dreams:

"Responding to a comment that the foreground of his Western photographs feels like a stage set, the photographer and auteur Wim Wenders suggests, “that impression is basic to the American West. Everything people have built there has a highly theatrical air." This animates Places of Consequence, the second album and first solo LP from Cameron Knowler, which deploys guitar and banjo as cinematic tools to soundtrack and investigate the region. “Despite the fact that the lightheartedness of youth lifts and the problematic components of the West reveal themselves over time,” Knowler says, “there are still ways of harnessing the space to richly creative ends.”

A lifelong Westerner and recent Los Angeles transplant, Knowler spent his childhood in Yuma, Arizona and Houston, Texas, where much of his learning was self-directed: riding dirt bikes in the desert, writing poetry, or visiting antique stores with his mother, who sold vintage glass beads. At seventeen, a bluegrass concert changed his life, and he began practicing guitar for twelve to sixteen hours a day, developing the quiet focus that permeates his music. As an instrumentalist largely eschewing fingerstyle technique, Knowler's music presents as understated, but has much in common with the music of his peers. Like those of frequent collaborators Eli Winter, Knowler's performances are affecting, his melodies intuitive and learned; like Yasmin Williams, his arrangements are lush and deceptively simple, informed by his jazz guitar studies at the University of Houston. [...]

Katy Riddell's album art suggests the inherent challenges of the album's goal. “Her illustrative style,” Knowler says, “calls to mind a certain academic reserve, which I myself feel having grieved the place of my upbringing through my academically trained craft. was once wishing to get out, I am now wishing to reenter in some ways. Both are futile pursuits.” Places of Consequence is testament to making the effort, and a document of Knowler's clear talent.
