ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the midst of working on follow up albums to both his 2008 album Holy Tulsa Thunder and Cheyenne’s 2007 album The Whale, Beau Jennings found himself with a collection of songs that didn’t seem to fit either new project. They weren’t aggressive like the latest Cheyenne material in the works, nor were they part of the conceptual framework of the new solo album. They instead seemed to return to some of the sounds and ideas from Cheyenne’s first album I Am Haunted, I Am Alive – in other words they were stories, strummed slowly and sung lowly.

There was Play Like A Champion, with the narrator’s inner voice offering something perhaps recognizable as motivation; Raining Ashes, based on the events of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake; Start Swingin’, the story of a desperate minor league baseball player; Another Way To Pay, the imagined ending to the Arrow Trucking saga (you can look it up); and A Suit Never Lies and White Whale of The Plains, where the lines between the weather and religion seem to get blurry at best.

Rather than fleshing out each song in the studio with a full band, these songs were instead performed with just vocals and guitar, over an early October weekend at Beau’s Brooklyn apartment, and were left to stand on their own. The result is Beau’s second official solo release, simply titled Six Stories.

All songs written, performed and recorded by Beau Jennings.

Mastered by Zeb Gould.
