With his new album Take Time, Platter is setting out to showcase his mastery of the genre, as well as capture the energy, spirit, and infectious harmonies of his live shows.

Platter's gentle, affecting vocals – which have earned him numerous comparisons to Willie Nelson – are carried along freely by the accompaniment of rollicking banjo and harmonica. Fans of the classic '70s singer-songwriter genre will delight in Platter's seamless transitions from toe-tapping jams to sweetly confident ballads throughout the set's 10 tracks.

Take Time was recorded and produced by David Mayfield at Tiger Spa in Akron, Ohio. Since most of Platter's shows are performed as a trio, the album takes care to show off the mellow yet sparkling synergy that arises from a smaller, tight arrangement.

Platter, who grew up in Buffalo, NY, had a childhood seeped in rich musical influences – from Woodie Guthrie to Bob Dylan to Flatt & Scruggs – but his biggest inspiration to date has been Neil Young. “The way [Young] lived his life, the way he recorded, not being that mainstream guy--that was a heavy influence on me," he explains. "I've never wanted to be a pop star."

True to Young's experimental and personally driven nature, Platter approaches songcraft without specific genre boundaries, choosing instead to allow his music to evolve instinctually. He made a fast impact on Cleveland's music scene upon moving there from Buffalo in 2008, releasing a debut solo LP in 2013 combining gospel, blues, and rock influences with bittersweet, character-driven lyrics.

Platter has been the featured performer at multiple large local music festivals, and is a seasoned roadman, keeping up a steady schedule of regional gigs while continually working on new music. He will be touring in support of Take Time throughout 2018.
