Album Notes
"Perfect for late nights to early dawns on long stretches of highway as the mile markers drift by."
(Americana UK)

"Near the top of must-see and hear indie singer-songwriters."
(Glide Magazine)

Influenced by icons such as Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits and Joni Mitchell, James Houlahan’s songcraft lends itself to a particular alchemy of Americana. The Wheel Still in Spin, produced by Fernando Perdomo (Linda Perhacs, Jakob Dylan) and tracked at Reseda Ranch Studios, is a warm and enveloping affair. Perdomo also handles bass and keyboards on the record, while Houlahan supplies ample guitar and harmonica. Danny Frankel, known for his work with Lou Reed, Fiona Apple and Nels Cline, among others, adds lush and fevered percussion and drums. Houlahan’s girlfriend, accomplished talent Esther Clark, can also be heard as background vocalist throughout the album. In addition, psych-folk legend Linda Perhacs lends her voice to the track "Spirit/Music," which includes lyrics from American poet Gregory Corso.

On this album, Houlahan scratches out matters of the heart through a lens fogged with deep sorrow. His charm seeps through his plainspoken nature in subtle yet masterful strokes. The Wheel Still in Spin is his best album to date, positioning him to take his place at the forefront of the vibrant Americana scene.
