I'm excited to announce that my new album, Home Before Dark, is in production and scheduled for release in May 2014. Produced by cutting edge Los Angeles sound designer, RYAT (Brainfeeder Records), the album contains nine new original songs as well as an edgy, electro-acoustic rendition of the standard, I Only Have Eyes For You (written by Harry Warren and Al Dubin).
This album takes a more decisive turn toward what's known as “the Bristol sound” and is heavily influenced by my favorite band, Portishead. It also contains doses of tight, weaving harmonies in the style of the Andrews Sisters. I hope listeners will hear nods to Bjork and The Chemical Brothers. The project themes are based on what I'm calling my “faith cycle,”: a life-long pattern of hope, doubt, determination, failure, surrender, and the moments in between. Guest musicians include Sam Nobles of Mean Lady, Ritchie Rubini, Jordan Maguire, and Ray Gagliardino. This beautiful photograph is by Sunny Miller and Jay Walker, sunnymillerphoto.com
