JamBase: Release Day Picks - October 19th New Album Highlights

The Scoop: Midnight North‘s Elliott Peck recorded her debut solo album Further From The Storm with producer Karl Derfler in Oakland. The Michigan-born, Bay Area transplant by way of Chicago, Peck enlisted a variety of players for the record out today on Blue Rose Music. Among the participants were bassist David Hayes, guitarist James DePrato, drummer Kevin Hayes, pedal steel guitarist Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz, keyboardist Patrick Warren and organist Jason Crosby. Guitarist Tim Bluhm and vocalist Vicki Randle also appear on a track. The album includes covers of “Give It Away” by The Trishas and “I Lost It” by Lucinda Williams. “In the past, I’d always recorded with a band that had played live and rehearsed together,” Peck stated. “This album was the first time I’d taken such raw material and developed with new musicians on the fly. It was definitely challenging and it really pushed me as an artist, but it turned out to be one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve ever had in the studio.”
