Dying Star



Released: 7th Sep 2018


180gram 2lp + download

Released: 21st Sep 2018


the nashville singer/songwriter has written for the likes of Tim McGraw & Josh Abbott, but takes centre stage on this set of EMOTIONALLY DEVASTATING, finely tuned, well-worn songs.

The full-length debut is a document of self-destruction and salvation. With a storytelling sensibility that constantly shifts from candid to poetic, the Nashville-based artist details his experience with addiction, overdoses and rehab. Rooted in a delicately sculpted sound that shows every nuance of his vocal delivery, it captures all the chaos and heartbreak on the way to finding redemption. “Dying Star is a triumph” – american songwriter
