Travels in the South

True to the airplane on the cover, Chris Stamey's first solo release in over 10 years soars. And true to its title, it takes you places both real and of the heart and mind. The most fascinating journey comes courtesy of "In Spanish Harlem," which transports the listener to the magical world inside of a song. Working with a top-shelf core band that is supplemented by guests (most of whom he's worked with as a producer) ranging from Ryan Adams and Tift Merritt to Ben Folds and Don Dixon, Stamey creates a melodic monument to all that's wonderful about sophisticated, symphonic rock music.
