Rayland Baxter http://raylandbaxter.com Sean Thomas Gerard http://seanthomasgerard.com/ Its hard to pinpoint the moment that songs are born, the day casual hummers become singers or scribblers become songwriters. Rayland Baxter certainly cant, and he wouldnt want to. Though he grew up in Nashville to the sounds of his fathers pedal steel, he didnt dream of being a rock star. He loved music, of course, but he liked other things, too: being outside, playing sports, working at the bait shop to make spare change. Hed always just let things settle into place naturally, following his gut from Tennessee to Colorado to Israel and back again, not knowing that when he returned home hed have a handful of songs and the knowledge that, at the end of the day, he didnt want to do anything else but make music. He leads a life without reigns, his work always echoing the ease in which it came to be. All of my music has come in a very natural way, by following the organic process of life and letting it just happen, he says. I jumped my fair share of ships, and the pieces came together slowly, not by study or design. The result is a record inspired by a life lived, not one struggling to inspire life. Down the mountains and the valleys like the breeze, he sings on the mtn song, were going where we want to go, doing anything we please. Hes done just that, writing songs that are reflections of what hes seen, felt and lived; the metaphors found in the hills, the slow strums born at home but blossomed across the sea. Growing up, Baxters father Bucky (a multi-instrumentalist for Bob Dylan, Steve Earle and Ryan Adams, among others) made sure music was just a natural part of life, a soundtrack to childhood. I grew up around pedal steel melodies, Baxter says, not knowing how later in life it would shape me and how I sing or place lyrics in a song. Hed met Dylan and become friends with a young Justin Townes Earleback then, they were just two kids who knew
