I am overjoyed to announce the arrival of my new album, Arc of Day, taking flight June 16th on Three Lobed Recordings! You can hear the first single, Light Blooms, on all digi platforms and watch a video by Ian Albert via the Uncut premiere here.
Finding the words to describe how much this album means does not come easy, but here goes…
One of the single greatest aspects to making music is getting to share it… to set something free and watch it take on a life all its own is something I will never take for granted. Even more life affirming is getting to share the creative process with others and witnessing something entirely new emerge. This was my intention from the get-go and Arc of Day is the result of that effort.
I am incredibly grateful to Rich Douthit (percussion), Chuck Johnson (pedal steel), Jonathan Sielaff (clarinet), and Trevor Montgomery (bass) for joining me and truly helping to elevate the music. Mega thanks also goes to collaborators, Billy Joe Miller, for gracing the album cover with his stunning painting, Donal Mosher for writing a beautiful forward, D. Norsen for his impeccable design skills, the Brothers Chinese Recordings (Jay and Ian) for vividly capturing this music in a studio setting (a first for DPG!), Carl Saff for his mastering wizardry, the amazing team (women-owned!) at Gold Rush Vinyl, and to Cory Rayborn for giving this music a home and for steadfast belief in what I do.
You can listen to “Light Blooms” on your preferred streaming service. The full album is available for pre-order on Bandcamp (180 black or orange LP, digital) or from your favorite retailer.
