I Travel One

Jason Eady’s New Outing

Available August 10

 

On August 10, the Mississippi-bred singer and guitarist Jason Eady returns with a new album I Travel On.  The album is his first to be recorded with his ace touring band who have been relentlessly touring behind Eady’s critically acclaimed self-titled album that was released in 2017.  Grammy-nominated musicians Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley accompanied Eady, his bandmates and wife and performing artist Courtney Patton to round out the lineup that would execute the live, single-take sessions.

Eady has released “Calaveras County,” the first single from the forthcoming album.  You can hear it here.

With his catalogue spanning from blues-infused Americana to bare-bones re-imagining of classic country, Eady’s seventh full-length reportedly takes on a looser, livelier, more groove-driven sound than ever before.  We here expect that I Travel On will continue the Fort Worth-based artist instilling each of his songs with the subtle insight and emotional depth that makes his music so powerful.

“One of the best things about making this album is that it was all done live—just six guys with acoustic instruments sitting in a room together, playing these songs we’d been working out for a while on the road,” says Eady. “Having Rob & Trey join us in the studio sparked a whole new fire to give it that spontaneous feel. The whole process was magic.”

In another departure from his previous work, Eady wrote most of I Travel On in a month-long burst of creativity. 

“Normally I take my pick of the songs I’ve come up with since the last album, but this time I was writing specifically for this record,” he says. “And because the album’s so groove-centered, I focused on the way words rolled off the tongue and how they moved with the music. If something felt good to sing, I just let it be instead of going back and editing myself like I might’ve done in the past.”

Eady’s self-titled 2017 release was embraced by us at Listening Through The Lens, making the cut of our top twenty albums 2017.
