Album Notes
Gwyneth Moreland’s third full-length album Ceilings, Floors, and Open Doors was recorded live, captured in the moment, with minimal production. Working with just two microphones and an open door, the recordings include ambient noise seized from outside the studio. Birds and breezes and the sense of space provide the expansive backdrop for Moreland’s storytelling. The solid, churning string instrumentation provides a foundation for the journey as Gwyneth’s exquisite voice and inspired writing escort the listener through each song’s special landscape.

Inspired by artists like Nanci Griffith and Billie Holiday, Gwyneth describes her music as folk with jazz influences. She has worked in the folk /Americana genre since her debut performances over a decade ago, while still in high school. The jazz influences began to seep in when she started playing with bassist / producer David Hayes (Van Morrison Band), who also recorded and mixed the album at his home studio, lovingly called “The Shack In The Back”.

Theirs is a rare alchemy. Blending veteran Hayes’s deep experience and melodic playing with Gwyneth’s lyrically rich songs and unique vocal performances creates nuances that highlight the musical subtleties, giving each song color and breadth. The album is capped off with the mastering styles of Karl Derfler (Tom Waits, No Doubt, Bob Dylan, Dave Matthews Band).
