Devin Jake’s brand new album, Days Into Years, will be released in early 2017 as part of a joint marketing venture with Atticus Records. Produced by Stephen Doster, and recorded by James Stevens at EAR Studio in Austin, Days Into Years features nine Devin Jake originals, plus one cover. Pre-release listeners predict that any one of a number of songs could become the break through hit that propels Devin Jake to wider audience awareness in 2017, especially in the country, bluegrass and Americana genres.
As on his debut, several of Devin’s favorite performers and friends showed up to lend their considerable talents to Days Into Years, including The Carper Family, Rebecca Patek and Sean Tracy who also performed on his award-winning debut album, Jesus & Mama. Ben Hodges handled the mandolin for Days Into Years, whereas Silas Lowe performed that role on Jesus & Mama.
Brennen Leigh, who performed on Jesus & Mama, did not appear as a performer on Days Into Years, but did provide the album’s one cover, “I Don’t Drink,” which was co-written with John Scott Sherrill. The song, a clever paean to co-dependency, delivers its hook neat with a twist and Devin’s performance is but one of many highlights on the album.
Atticus Records recording artist, Stephen Doster, who produced both Days Into Years and Jesus & Mama, once again teamed with Moonlight Towers frontman James Stevens, who recorded and mixed both albums at EAR Studio in Austin.
Jake has entered into a marketing joint venture with Doster’s label Atticus Records for Days Into Years to be plugged into the label’s 2017 slate of releases, which include a new album from Doster, called New Black Suit, and one from label mate, Rick Busby, titled The Soul of Everything. All three records will be released in early 2017, along with alt-pop songstress, Caro’s debut.
Days Into Years is complete and being readied for manufacturing at this writing. Jake will be launching a pre-release IndieGoGo campaign to fund the costs for the CD manufacturing and release promotion of Days Into Years. If the IndieGoGo campaign significantly exceeds its minimum goals, a vinyl release of Days Into Years could also the light of day in 2017.
