PRE-ORDER Jeremy Ferrara on sky blue cassette. Lyrics and photo on 7 panel liner card. Jeremy Ferrara's solo album recorded in Portland with Mike Coykendall. Tapes expected to ship July 9th.
There is an innate tenderness about Jeremy Ferrara. His good nature is inescapable, and anyone within earshot of his quavering voice and quiet guitar is likely to swoon in sympathetic reaction. He’s a folksinger, and a song-diviner. His music is as fun as it is finely detailed. His new album Everything I Hold is exemplary of this style. Produced by Mike Coykendall, the LP features just Jeremy, his guitar, and voice, on eight songs that fill the listener with wonder, empathy, and joy. Prior to covid Ferrara spent all of his time touring America and Europe, as a guitarist in his partner Erisy Watt’s band. For a time he also toured with country musicians Margo Cilker, and An American Forrest. He’s been called “ Melancholy, observational, yet still bright” by Imperfect Fifth, and “reminiscent of the likes of self-aware, world-aware songwriters with visions of a better world built into their bones” by For Folk’s Sake.
Everything I Hold was mastered for cassette at Laminal Audio by A.F. Jones. The full album is out on American Standard Time Records July 9th.
