Description

Prolific folk/blues artist Charlie Parr conceived of his new self-titled LP after fracturing his shoulder in several places in a skateboarding accident, as the injury forced him to relearn how to play the guitar. Instead of turning away from his music career, he pored over old and new songs during the recovery process, eventually deciding to revisit some of the songs for a new album. It was recorded at Pachyderm Studio in Cannon Falls, Minnesota, with co-producer Liz Draper on bass, Mikkel Beckmen on percussion, Jeff Mitchell on electric guitar, accordion, organ, backing vocals, and Dave Hundrieser on harmonica.

Featuring a mix of new originals and revisitations of favourites from as long as 20 years ago, the moods are diverse – from sparse, reflective fingerpicking to stompy, buzzing upbeat numbers, and emotional narrative dramas. Between live and studio recordings, this is actually Parr’s 17th album in as many years and those who’ve followed his journey will most definitely want this in the collection.
