Florida-raised, Nashville-based artist Laney Jones will be releasing new album Stories Up High on May 20th, 2022, via AHPO Records. Recorded at Nashville’s Bomb Shelter with producer Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Langhorne Slim, Hurray for the Riff Raff), the album blends Indie Rock, dusty ‘60s R&B instrumentation, and subtle touches of modern Folk into 11 songs that explore “growth, change, reality, and the subconscious”. An animated video created by Shane Pielocik and a live performance of the title track “Stories Up High” have been released as a preview.
Laney Jones comments on her writing process:
When I write, it’s like I step inside of a dream. I go to this place that’s somewhere between sleeping and waking, between memory and imagination. It’s a place where anything can happen.
Stories Up High is a collection of songs from someone who is “an optimist at heart, a believer in the relentless beauty of this world” and is Jones’ first album in six years.
She will be touring with Blitzen Trapper in June 2022, with her own headline dates to be announced soon.
