"We are really excited about this album. The plan for this album is to record everything live off the floor. The energy and honesty of music in my opinion is captured best with this approach. It really seems to make the whole record making experience and listening experience more organic. The natural feel of musicians playing together, exploring spontaneously a destination unknown with the songs at the helm. The beauty is in the mystery."
- Jay William Henderson
The songs on this album were all written in the hauntingly beautiful landscape of Utah's deserts. Since returning from Nashville Jay has spent a large part of the last year engrossed and inspired by these magnificent features. He considers these places 'holy' for lack of a better word. The experience has been transformative in many ways for him. We hope it will be for you.
Instead of Jay recording and mixing this record like the last solo release 'The Sun Will Burn Our Eyes'. He wanted to be able to focus on the songs and not be distracted by the technical side. He decided to turn the reins over to Scott Wiley to produce and record this album. He is a great talent. Jay has worked with Scott in the past namely the Band Of Annuals record 'Let Me Live'. We are very excited about returning to work with him. He owns and operates June Audio. If you would like to know more about him and the projects he's worked on follow the link.
