ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Of the songs on his new full-length album The Devil to Pay, Brett Shady says, "These are songs that were written out of frustration more than anything else." Having performed as a frontman for rock and punk bands for fifteen years, Brett began writing songs four years ago after a cross-country tour with the band Golden Shoulders. "I needed more artistic control and the opportunity to express myself that I wasn't getting performing other people's music."

With such disparate influences as Elliott Smith, Marty Robbins, Paul Simon, and Sam Cooke, Brett's songs paint a picture of heartbreak and regret and raise questions of good and evil deeply rooted in the American songwriting tradition. Most of the ten songs on The Devil to Pay were written about his move from Northern California's gold country to Los Angeles ten years ago, a period Brett says was "full of isolation, depression and struggling to find my place in the world." Recorded in Nevada City by Dana Gumbiner (Golden Shoulders, Joanna Newsom, Mariee Sioux), the album features an ensemble of veteran musicians including Lee Bob Watson, Adam Kline, Ehren Haas, David Nicholson and Jason Graham.
