Description

Strictly Limited Edition 180g Black Vinyl with Bonus CD album insert and lyric inlay. Same Tracks on Vinyl and CD formats Eamon O'Leary is songwriter from New York's Lower East Side, originally from Dublin, Ireland. 'All Souls' his first album for Reveal Records was entirely self-written, and recorded with Jefferson Hamer (Anais Mitchell), and Benjamin Lazar Davis (Cuddle Magic, Joan As Police Woman, Okkervill River). A beautiful, sparse album of darkness and light. All Souls is ten songs that highlight O'Leary's musical talent and his knack for writing heartfelt, poetic lyrics. Like Leonard Cohen, Smog, Jackson C. Frank and Palace before him, this is music from deep within the mind and from the soul, personal stories wrapped in extremely delicate layers of sound. Eamon O'Leary has spent twenty years in New York developing his songcraft, appearing live and collaborating with esteemed artists such as Sam Amidon, Beth Orton, Glen Hansard, Bonnie Prince Billy, Anais Mitchell, Anna and Elizabeth, Martin Hayes (The Gloaming) Jefferson Hamer, Bridget Kearney (Lake Street Dive) and Benjamin Lazar Davis. "Eamon O'Leary is one of the deepest musicians and songwriters out there... a secret weapon, an underground hero." Sam Amidon "Eamon O'Leary's songs, no matter how familiar I am with them, make me well up each time I hear them. This is not because they are sad or tragic or miserable but because they so perfectly capture the moments that are not usually noticed, the moments that make life precious and worth it. He sings with a gentle modest knowing that everything is like it is because it is that way. He doesn't sound like 8234;Leonard Cohen 8236; 8236; 8236; but I feel the same when I listen. What he does is timeless and classic; some of the best music I've heard in a long time." Joan As Police Woman "When listening to Eamon O'Leary's lyrics/music there is a timeless simplicity combined with a specificity and mixed with an understated vibe that tops anything i've ever heard/thought about. He is one of those people who has something in his eyes that says, "i know something nobody else knows". The music reflects that perfectly. This is my favourite record I''ve ever had the pleasure of working on" Benjamin Lazar Davis eamon o'leary - voice, guitar benjamin lazar davis - voice, drums, baritone guitar, pump organ, glockenspiel bridget kearney - voice, bass emily miller - voice thomas bryan eaton - pedal steel jefferson hamer - electric guitar (4,8) recorded and mixed by jefferson hamer at humble abode studios, west hurley, ny additional recording by benjamin lazar davis and thomas bryan eaton in brooklyn, ny.
