ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Library Fire formed in early 2004 in Charleston, SC as a recording project featuring songwriter Aaron Levy on guitar, piano and vocals, bassist Jamez Inman and drummer Eric Rickert (ex-Skintight). After recording a polished nine track album at Fusion Five studios (Eleven:54, Wormbelly) in Mt. Pleasant, SC, the band recruited guitarist Jesse Judy and began performing at respected Charleston venues such as the Music Farm and Cumberlands.

In July of 2005, thanks to a strong internet presence, 96Wave FM (WAVF) asked the Library Fire to be guests on "The Cutting Edge", a weekly program featuring the best in new alternative music. As guests on the show, the band performed a handful of live numbers including "More Than I Meant To", "November Girl" and a previously unheard song, "Wait" and spun tracks off their then forthcoming album.

In September of 2005, the Library Fire released their debut album "To a High, Lonely Place". In addition to the core musicians in the group, the album features pedal steel guitar by Bob Hoffnar of Rounder Records recording artists Hem, banjo from Allan Thompson (Blue Plantation), guitar and vocals from the incredibly talented, then 14 year old Hannah Booth, as well as vocals from songwriters Shosha Capps and Elizabeth Lee.

The first single off the album "Drive" has received airplay on both 96Wave and 98x (WYBB). Tracks such as "Papa George" and "More Than I Meant To" (co-written by Levy and Massachusetts based singer/songwriter Julie Loyd) are poised to become strong follow-up singles. Other tracks such as "Grounded '06" and "The Butcher's Daughter" (co-written with Romania based songwriter Elizabeth Lee) showcase The Library Fire's acoustic abilities. "Low Blue Flame" is a personally revealing song in the vain of confessional songwriters such as Joni Mitchell and James Taylor. "The Chapel Fire" and "November Girl" are strong rockers which further invite the already frequent comparisons The Library Fire receives to bands such as Live, Pearl Jam and Guns N' Roses. The album's closing track "Nika" is a riveting melting pot of styles, from the opening melody, based on a theme by Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and played by Levy on the traditional Russian three-stringed balalaika to the song's final chords, punctuated by thunderous cannon blasts.

"To a High, Lonely Place" is available in local music stores, as well as at www.cdbaby.com and Apple iTunes music store.

to write a review

that short little girl that's always at town center

why this is a great cd
this cd kicked ass. it's folky and at the same time very alt. it's totally something new. "butcher's daughter" appealed to me because of the lyrics and also the female vocal stylings. "nika" had to be my absolute favorite song on the album because it was kind of a spoof on all those sad little pricks that don't know what music is. and a very catchy chorus. This cd kicked ass mostly because my name was in the liner notes. ^^ of course....
