Rayland Baxter // New Album + Hi-Fi Indy Show

In the Fall of 2016, demoing his latest album, Wide Awake, Rayland Baxter isolated himself, for three months, in an old rubber factory in rural Kentucky, with little more than a mattress, a guitar, and a Wurlitzer. The fruit of this odd behavior was released last week through ATO Records. It’s a collection of catchy songs, full of pop hooks, and Beatles-esque melodies.

On the new album, Baxter recently told Rolling Stone magazine:

“I like telling stories, and beautifully told stories as well. To captivate another human is a really cool thing to do. I want to be captivating, always, and to be captivated. I’ve just been getting better at it, because I feel like I should be a songwriter and a singer. It’s the thing I’m best at in life at the moment, it’s the thing I’m getting better at the most. It’s an evolution.”

Baxter will play The Hi-Fi in Indianapolis on August 1st.
