Having written her debut record America Religious after a lengthy series of trips traversing the backroads of the United States, it comes as no surprise that songwriter Caroline Rose and band mate Jer Coons have been constantly on the move playing venues and house concerts around the country. "The themes in the album reflect that journey," says Paste Magazine, "as each track seems to tackle a new topic and make even the most familiar themes feel fresh." Sirius XM Program Director Ari Fink says, [America Religious] "puts you in the front seat riding shotgun on a very real adventure…" Rose and Coons are proud to have had complete creative control over the record, having played nearly all the instruments, co-producing, mixing and engineering it themselves.
On his new album, Silver Apples of the Moon, Brandon Whyde gives listeners a glimpse into his past -- a past that includes heartbreak, loss and self-discovery. His voice has been described as soulful, whiskey-soaked and even “a freight train on fire” – qualities that shine through on his latest release.
Silver Apples of the Moon was recorded with Grammy-winning producer Jimmy Nutt in Muscle Shoals, Ala. – an area known as “The Shoals” – the album includes some of the veteran musicians who helped The Shoals earn acclaim as a hotbed of musical talent. Spooner Oldham, who played keyboards on Percy Sledge’s “When a Man Loves a Woman” and as part of several of Neil Young’s projects and Bob Wray, who’s played bass on more than 30 #1 country hits, are just a few of the artists appearing on Silver Apples of the Moon. The SteelDrivers frontman, Gary Nichols, makes a special guest appearance on the song “Self-Medicated”.
The album -- Whyde’s third full-length release -- includes rollicking melodies and mournful ballads, showcasing his vocal range. On autobiographical tracks like “Self-Medicated” and “Ain’t I A Man,” his lyrics focus on some of the more challenging moments of his life, including his father’s death, a friend’s struggle with addiction and the uncertainty of his early career.
Whyde is currently on tour in support of Silver Apples of the Moon, set to release on Sept. 19, 2017. When he’s not touring, he focuses on songwriting and has co-written songs with Grammy-winning country songwriter Clint Lagerberg and modern Americana music stars Jamie Kenney, Tony Lucca and Stone Aielli.
