Song Of The Week

John Moreland – Cherokee

JohnMorelandJohn Moreland played in his first show when he was 13 or 14 years old. In the early 2000s during high school, Moreland played in local punk and hardcore bands, including local metalcore Oklahoma band, Thirty Called Arson. Moreland put together the Black Gold Band in 2005, and released Endless Oklahoma Sky in 2008.

In 2009, he recorded the follow-up Things I Can’t Control with producer and musician Stephen Egerton (Descendents, All). Largely self-performed (Moreland plays 99% of the instruments) and self-produced, Moreland produces music that is influenced by his Oklahoma roots, music that is “gloriously and joyfully heartbreaking.”In 2015, Moreland released High on Tulsa Heat, his third full-length solo record release. The album was recorded quickly and informally over the course of a few days in July 2014. Moreland used his parents’ home in Bixby OK, as a studio while they were out of town on vacation. He is characterized as a “songwriter’s songwriter”. Three of Moreland’s songs, “Heaven,” “Gospel,” and “Your Spell”, have been featured on the TV show, Sons of Anarchy.

A full year in the making, she drove across the US twice and toured South Africa solo while writing, then spent 8 months in studios in Los Angeles, Nashville, Joshua Tree and Auckland, New Zealand, with producer Bradley Hanan Carter perfecting the songs and sound. It’s a collection of love songs — 12 in all — the most visceral record she’s made to date, guitars searing and drums thumping like anxious hearts...[READ MORE]
