After studying at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, songwriter Jordan Tarrant headed to Richmond, Virginia, where he found a community of talented musicians to help bring his visionary songwriting to life in the studio. His new six-song EP, Lazarus, was recorded with a bare-bones approach at the Virginia Moonwalker Studio. Captured on a Tascam 388 reel-to-reel tape machine, the gentle quality of Tarrant’s singing and the warmth of the arrangements shine through the analog mix. Featuring lap steel and bass guitar, mandolin, organ, fiddle, and percussion,Lazarus introduces a musician with a knack for speaking from and to the heart. Songs like “Candle” and “Baby I’m Here” are sung in a troubadour minor key reminiscent of Jeff Tweedy or Townes Van Zandt. “Guilty” displays a southern shuffle with crunchy backing of guitar, drums, and piano, for a gritty crossroads vibe.
