Since the 2005 release of his debut album, Mississippi-bred singer/guitarist Jason Eady has brought a rare balance of unguarded honesty and poetic sophistication to his songwriting. With his catalog spanning from blues-infused Americana to bare-bones reimagining of classic country, Eadys 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. The follow-up to his 2017 self-titled effort, I Travel On marks the first time that Eadys recorded an album with his road banda lineup whose rhythm section is made up of musicians from an R&B/roots background, and whose lead players hail from the bluegrass world. With Grammy Award-nominated duo Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley joining them in the studio, I Travel On wholly captures the unbridled energy and kinetic camaraderie that the bands recently displayed in their relentless touring and in sharing stages with the likes of Sturgill Simpson. One of the best things about making this album is that it was all done livejust six guys with acoustic instruments sitting in a room together, playing these songs wed been working out for a while on the road, says Eady. It was a much different and more organic process than hiring studio musicians and then making an album right after youve met each other. In another departure from his previous work (including 2014s critically lauded Daylight & Dark and 2012s AM Country Heaven, a top 40 debut on Billboards Top Country Albums chart), Eady wrote most of I Travel On in a month-long burst of creativity. Normally I take my pick of the songs Ive come up with since the last album, but this time I was writing specifically for this record, he says. And because the albums so groove-centered, I focused on the way words rolled off the tongue and how they moved with the music. If so
