“Making this record was effortless,” songwriter Rayland Baxter says of his debut full length Feathers and Fishhooks (ATO). “The songs formed themselves; we started with no goals in mind other than making music that myself and everyone around me was moved by." That combination of easy, laid-back charm and deep personal connection can be heard on one of our favorite tracks: "Marjoria", a beauty of a backporch slow dance that features Baxter's dad Bucky, a veteran of sessions with Bob Dylan and Ryan Adams, on pedal steel. Noted studio knob-twiddler Jacquire King (Of Monsters and Men, Norah Jones) executive produced and mixed the album.
