“Sometimes you have to remind yourself why you started something in the
first place,” muses *Seth Walker*. On his stellar new album, *’Gotta Get
Back’* due out September 2nd, he does precisely that, excavating the roots
of his love affair with music and reuniting with the family that helped
spark the fire all those years ago. The record is as remarkable as the
story behind it, which stretches from Walker’s childhood living on a
commune in North Carolina to stints in Austin, Nashville, New York and New
Orleans.

Produced by *The Wood Brothers’* drummer and keyboardist *Jano Rix*, ‘Gotta
Get Back’ is the ninth release in Walker’s extensive catalog, which has
garnered critical acclaim around the world for nearly two decades.* NPR* hailed
his “hard-driving” songs and “sweet tenor,” while the* Washington Post* praised
his “soulful croon,” and the* Wall Street Journal* fell for his “tasty mix
of blues and R&B.” He cracked the Top 20 on the Americana Chart and toured
the world countless times over, from festival stages to dates with *The
Mavericks*, *The Wood Brothers*, *Raul Malo*, *Paul Thorn* and *Ruthie
Foster*, among others.

When it came time to record ‘Gotta Get Back,’ though, Walker was caught up
in the elusive dance with the muse, fatigue of the road, and the slippery
slope & inevitable collision of art and business. In search of inspiration
and rejuvenation, he turned to the people that taught him the joys of
making music in the first place: his family.

On his last two albums, Jason Eady earned major acclaim for his
ahead-of-the-curve take on classic country, a bold departure from his
earlier excursions into blues-infused Americana. Now with his sixth album,
the Mississippi-bred singer/guitarist merges his distinct sensibilities
into a stripped-down, roots-oriented sound that starkly showcases the
gritty elegance of his songwriting.

The follow-up to 2014’s critically praised Daylight/Dark—an album that
“belongs on a shelf next to Dwight Yoakam’s Buenos Noches from a Lonely
Room, Joe Ely’s Letter to Laredo, and yes, even Willie Nelson’s Phases and
Stages,” according to AllMusic—Eady’s latest finds the Fort Worth,
Texas-based artist again teaming up with producer Kevin Welch. Now longtime
collaborators (with their past efforts including 2012’s AM Country Heaven,
a top 40 debut on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart), Eady and Welch
worked closely in crafting the album’s acoustic-driven yet lushly textured
aesthetic. “At the beginning I told everyone I wanted to make a record
where, if the power went out, we could still sit down and play all the
songs the exact same way,” says Eady, who points out that steel guitar is
the only electric instrument featured on the album.
