Album Notes
A narrative of transience and finding courage in dark spaces, Lana McMullen’s debut album, Traveling Light, showcases Lana’s revelatory songwriting and richly harmonic, honey-smooth vocal acuity. The album came to life over the past year at Seahurst Cabin with Seattle producer and multi-instrumentalist Kevin Veatch (Ryan Lewis, Sarah Gerritsen, Courtney Marie Andrews). With its political undertones and overarching themes of distance and loss, Traveling Light recalls trailblazers such as Joni Mitchell and Tracy Chapman: actively inviting the listener to explore how values determine one’s personal identity and how identity shifts when one’s values are challenged.

Featuring material from the years following Lana McMullen's move to Seattle, Traveling Light represents a rich hybrid of the singer/songwriter's Americana roots, her background as a classical singer, and her experiences as an experimental artist. Among its lush instrumental layers, vocal harmonies and subtle electronic elements, the album showcases string arrangements from Seattle composer and violinist Andrew Joslyn (Macklemore, David Bazan, Damien Jurado), as well as stylings from Seattle musicians such as Rebecca Chung-Felice, Aaron Fishburn, Hanna Stevens, Micaela Cooley, and Kevin Veatch.
