Recorded in Los Angeles in 2014, Pat McGee was influenced by the classic albums of the 1970s that were spun in his childhood home. “I was inspired to write a record that was not based on a ‘single’ but on the wholeness of the complete album,” Pat explains. “I was at a friend’s house, listening to what I thought was someone’s playlist on an iPod. When I realized they were spinning full albums on vinyl, I was blown away. The very next day, I decided to buy a record player and picked up the ten records that lit the fire in me to start playing music, including seminal records by James Taylor, Jackson Browne, and Crosby, Stills, and Nash.”
Channeling the vintage warmth of those recordings, he began writing an album that would have the same timeless quality of singer/songwriter rock from the Laurel Canyon scene of the early 70s.
Sara Rachele, a songwriter from Decatur, GA, a hot-bed for local folk music, cut her teeth in the Atlanta scene cleaning out the cupboards at Eddie's Attic in the early 2000s. The wurli player of The Love Willows (Decca/Universal) is tracking a solo record of folksongs written while living in Manhattan's East Village. 'Diamond Street,' produced by Kris Sampson of Ponderosa, arrives late 2014.
