It is hard to believe that a year has gone by since we first received our copy of Ferraby Lionheart's self-titled EP. The singer-songwriter got himself a record deal with Nettwerk Music Group, recently re-released the EP, and is now set to unleash his debut LP, Catch The Brass Ring.
About recording the record, Lionheart said: "I met a guy with a cool little garage studio in west LA (red rockets glare). The place was packed with instruments and vintage gear; I tried to use it all. I also really lucked out with Dan Long, the engineer that was hanging around. We hit it off sonically and ended up making the whole record together. With new resources available, it was very fulfilling to explore the kind of instrumentation that some of these songs were calling for. I am pretty dang pleased with it."
Although we'll have to wait until September 4 to purchase the album, some of you will get a chance to hear the new tunes early as he embarks on a three-week tour with Mason Jennings, The dates, as well as the tracklisting for the new album, are listed below.
