New Blues-Infused Americana From Jason Eady


On August 10, the Mississippi-bred singer & guitarist Jason Eady returns with a new album I Travel On. The album is his first to be recorded with his ace touring band who have been relentlessly touring behind Eady’s critically acclaimed self-titled album that was released in 2017. GRAMMY-nominated musicians Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley accompanied Eady, his bandmates and wife Courtney Patton to round out the lineup that would execute the live, single-take sessions.

Eady released “Always a Woman,” the second single to be released from the forthcoming album. In a conversation with Billboard, Eady said, “Everything you hear on the record is the way it went down. There may have been multiple takes of a song, but what you hear is what we played from top to bottom — no overdubs, no punch-ins. We just really wanted it to feel good and we wanted it to be a record you can put on and if you want to listen to the words and get meaning out of it you can.”

Previously, Eady shared the album’s title track “Calaveras County.” Noisey premiered the song and described the album as having “…a cohesive sound that feels weighted with meaning” while Rolling Stone Country named it one of the Top 10 Country & Americana Songs of the Week.

With his catalog spanning from blues-infused Americana to bare-bones reimagining of classic country, Eady’s seventh full-length takes on a looser, livelier, more groove-driven sound than ever before. But while I Travel On brims with a feel-good spontaneity, the Fort Worth-based artist continues to instill each song with the subtle insight and emotional depth that makes his music so powerful.

One of the best things about making this album is that it was all done live—just six guys with acoustic instruments sitting in a room together, playing these songs we’d been working out for a while on the road,” says Eady. “Having Rob & Trey join us in the studio sparked a whole new fire to give it that spontaneous feel. The whole process was magic.”

Jason Eady will tour throughout the rest of 2018 in support of I Travel On.
