Review: Deane Nesbitt Jr. – ‘Soundtracks in the Sand’



A unique composer, Deane Nesbitt Jr. has crafted some of his most involving and blissful work in the last few years. A man of experience, Deane’s background covers sixteen years practicing law, co-founding an investment management company, writing an illustrated history of a 1912 investment bank, and most recently, a series of evolving, instrumental compositions.


Although Deane has composed music for years, he does not read music, an interesting point which makes his latest release, ‘Soundtracks in the Sand’ an even more accomplished feat. A series of eleven blissful audio journeys, the new album is an expansive and evolving journey filled with deft, tactile sounds and emotive, textured sounds.


A prime example of Deane’s sound arrives in the form of ‘Tracking The Soldier’, a blossoming acoustic composition that builds in weight and volume with every passing beat. A stunning, wonderfully delicate piece, it’s a perfect example of how Deane can build emotion and wonder into the most simple of sounds.



An album of many highlights and infinite rewards, ‘Soundtracks in the Sand’ has the ability to take you somewhere far away, lifting you out of your current moment, and inspiring you to do and feel more. It’s powerful, strong, and pushes you to look for personal connections with yourself and the greater world around you. An album for both the best and worst of times, Deane’s work here is nothing shorting of brilliant.


Score: 9/10
