Needle Bed

Needle Bed - John RalstonMy first album, Needle Bed, was made with the help of some friends in 2005. I then re-released Needle Bed on June 6, 2006 with Vagrant Records.






Harp Magazine:
“Brian Wilson’s teenage basement demos to God.”

Alternative Press:
“..channels the spirit of the late Townes Van Zandt to create a piece of reflective folk-rock nouveau that even bests Bright Eye’s I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning”
“Just bursting with great melodies; calling it an aural treat is not saying too much.”  “Imagine a twist between Brian Wilson and the late Elliott Smith and you’ll get a general sense of what I’m talking about.”
