"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.
