This is it! This is the album I've been waiting for and it's finally here. My dazzling friends in the Soil & the Sun present to the world their third album, MERIDIAN. It's richer than anything they've ever released and the depth of this soundscape is gorgeous. And guess who provided some those deep end cello lines?
That's right. This past winter I was thrilled to spend a frosty February day sheltered in Peter Fox's wonderful Stone House Recording Studio with the Soil and the Sun crew. The laughs were plentiful, as were the hugs. I can't express my love for this band's music and the kind hearted souls that create it.
Our super sting team included the talents of Joanna Perry, Samantha Cooper and Jeffrey Niemeier on violins and old-time folk buff and cellist, Micah Ling. Micah was key in guiding me through our tricky sheet music. Not sure I could have done it without her haha.
But perhaps more than anything, I treasure the opportunity to experience the bare bones of these recordings and watch how producer Rick Fritz and singer Alex McGrath thread it all together. They are masters with a tremendous amount of sensitivity for every progression that ultimately trigger the human spirit. These songs light a fire in my heart and I have a lot of gratitude for that.
Please take a listen.
