Album Notes
Emerging from a 32 year exile from the music business, and then a 6 year recovery from an automobile collision fatal to his wife, Papa Jack Couch has spent the last 3 years steadily reclaiming a place in the community of music, culminating in the recent release of his 12 song record, Meriwether. The album features fresh interpretations by some of Atlanta’s leading musicians, recorded in Atlanta’s edgiest studio. It's by turns joyful and rueful, plaintive and exultant, but it always jumps and slides with an aliveness that takes the listener to a better place. His voice has been described as Tupelo honey over burnt sourdough, and his writing ranges across multiple genres without ever slowing down. It's a freewheeling, gospel-shouting, resonator-choking, violin-soaring journey through a lyrical lifetime of love, loss and redemption, a roller coaster of jubilation and a glider flight of beauty seasoned with dabs of wry observation. It's a cheap ticket to a brief junket among the hopeful and the obscure, so buy in and settle back for an emotional ride.
