New Album Announcement

Old Fashioned

The new album, Old Fashioned, will be released on January 24th, 2012 by Yer Bird Records out of Calgary, Alberta. I’m very honored to join their already stellar roster, so take a moment and visit their website, check out some of the other quality music they are putting out. They will release the first single on November 22nd, so stay tuned…

The album was produced by Bo Ramsey, a personal hero of mine for quite some time due to his production work with greats like Lucinda Williams, Greg Brown, Jeffrey Foucault, Pieta Brown, The Pines, and others, as well as Bo’s own fantastic solo records. We recorded the album in Iowa City back in August at Minstrel Studios with John Svec at the controls. After that it was passed to Tom Tucker in Minneapolis for mixing, and then on to Yes Master in Nashville, where it was mastered by Alex McCollough.

Old Fashioned features a host of great musicians, including Bo Ramsey himself on electric guitar, Pieta Brown singing harmonies, Bob Black on the banjo, Matt Donoghue (who played on Ghost Towns) on upright bass, and best musical buddy Jeremiah Nelson on a whole host of instruments. Jeremiah also designed that handsome album art above.

Thank you so much to everyone who was a backer for the initial project over at Kickstarter, you all made this album possible!

Singles and other sneak previews are on their way before the full release in January, check back for more updates!
