ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

In the early 1990s, Jeff Heiskell’s voice could be heard on college radio in the band The Judybats. The group’s songs “Don’t Drop the Baby,” “Native Son” and “Being Simple” were fun, fresh and thoughtful pop rock in an era when the buzz word was “grunge.” While the Judybats continued to make good music for nearly a decade, it was clear that the band wasn’t ready to fall in line with the current trends.
It shouldn’t be any surprise then that 15 years after the Judybats called it quits that Heiskell doesn’t seem to care that his new album “Arriving” doesn’t fit into any current fashion either. It’s simply a collection of great songs and great performances. Listen close and you’ll recognize that Heiskell’s perverse sense of humor, sexual innuendo and skewed worldview has only gotten more profound.
Recorded at Arbor Studios and Shed55 in Knoxville, Tenn., Heiskell’s hometown, the new album arrives at a time when Knoxville is becoming known as one of the South’s great and most welcoming music towns. Following more financially stable professions than music, Heiskell has only made sporadic appearances on the scene in the past few years, releasing the solo albums “Soundtrack for an Aneurism” (2006) and “Clip-On Nose Ring” (2008) and rarely performing live. That may change with the release of “Arriving,” which has already prompted Heiskell to perform for the first time in years to a packed house at Knoxville’s Hungry Otter Music Festival.
He’s an artist who knows the modern limitations of the music business. While he once worked with legendary producer Richard Gottehrer (Blondie, Go-Gos, Richard Hell, The Strangeloves) and recorded for Sire Records, he feels more freedom recording with some of Knoxville’s favorite producers and calling the shots himself.
"All the parameters from when I was doing this for a living are gone,” says Heiskell. “It's so odd. You get something like this done and you spend a lot of money on it and you think it's awesome. You think it's the best thing you've ever done. Then you just sit there kind of blank thinking, ‘What am I gonna do with it?' "
Thank goodness what he’s done is release it to the public at a time when music fans don’t care so much about musical fads and fashions.
Give it a listen.

- Wayne Bledsoe, Music Writer, Knoxville News-Sentinel and host of WDVX-FM's "All Over The Road"
