About this project

New 22 Song Double Album – Out Past The Wires

Out Past The Wires is the most ambitious project of my seventeen year career. In a time of diminished attention span, focus on the soundbite, the single song and the revolving playlist I've taken on a project that is at its heart about being more substantial. 

At twenty-two songs and over eighty minutes long, Out Past The Wires will take up more space on your shelf (and hopefully in your heart) both literally and figuratively. The album ranges from all-out rockers to whispery ballads and hits all spots in between. The album will contain twenty-two songs and be available in both a double cd and a double vinyl version – both with beautifully expansive design and lyrics included.

The funds from the campaign will cover the costs of making and releasing the album into the world. These include the recording sessions themselves, a publicity campaign, artwork, manufacturing the cd and the deluxe two album vinyl version as well. 

Once again I enlisted ace Nashville producer Neilson Hubbard to produce the sessions and keep my head on straight as we ventured into the massive project. I can honestly say this is the most satisfying recording I've made. I invite you to be become part of the team that will bring Out Past The Wires to life and into the world.

    Outtakes The Wires

    Signed CD copy of Out Past The Wires Plus the Outtakes CD.
    Out of a total of 78 songs written over the last year and a half the initial cull was down to 42. These are the 10 songs that didn't make the last cut. Most of the songs are humorous/poignant in a John Prine/Todd Snyder vein. One song was written in tribute to Leonard Cohen and one in tribute to Johnny Cash. These songs are the cousins that kept fighting in the back yard so weren't invited onto the double album.

    Framed Hand Written Lyric

    Here’s your opportunity to own a true one-of-a-kind piece of art: a handwritten lyric sheet from my own scrawling pen. You can choose any song from the entire Rod Picott catalog. My penmanship is notoriously strange as anyone who has tried to decipher one of my set lists will confirm. The lyric may or may not be legible to others but since you've chosen the song you will be able to decode it. The handwritten lyric will be nicely framed.

    Songwriting Weekend

    Get yourself to my home in Nashville TN and we will spend two days working on your songwriting skills. I love exploring the songwriting process and sharing what I've learned over these many years. If you are a fan of my songwriting I can help you sharpen your own skills and help you find your own honest and vivid voice as a songwriter. You will stay in my home, have your own room, I'll take care of all meals and if you want to take a break I'll squire you around Nashville a bit. If you want to dig in hard we'll simply stay put and work like dogs to help you bring your songwriting to the next level. Travel costs to and from Nashville are the responsibility of the backer.
