The Alabama singer-songwriter's latest album offers a contemplative take on Americana.
Birmingham, Alabama singer-songwriter Jesse Payne returns with his newest album Heirloom this week, and his laid-back, rustic, contemplative take on indie, roots, and folk is sure to interest fans of indie and Americana alike. Three years in the making, it's been a torturous haul, but its sumptuous arrangements - a testament to Payne's many collaborators - make this record well worth the long wait.
"Heirloom is the most personal album I've ever worked on and I am blessed that I was able to make it with people who have become my family," Payne tells PopMatters. "There was a whole lot of blood, sweat, and tears poured into this album; but most of all, a whole lot of love."
Heirloom will be released 14 August.
