ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About The Die Youngs:

Nashville musicians/producers Denny Smith and Kenny Wright's first endeavor as a duo.


"Why exactly are we making this record?" That's the question I found myself asking every couple of months, as we chipped away at this thing, in fits & starts, for nearly two years.

The truth is, I'm not sure I ever wrangled an actual answer, or at least nothing more succinct than "This is gonna be great!", which hardly qualifies as even addressing my somewhat more specific query.

What had started as Kenny & I weeding through old song demos on my iPod, with me trying to explain why this or that one didn't make the cut for whatever album was being assembled at the time they were conceived, quickly evolved into an effort to rescue these orphaned numbers and get them out into the world. Before I knew what was happening, a plot was formulated to make a whole album based around our misfit compositions.

Since many of the songs in question(my contributions, at least) had initially been benched due to the practical reasoning that they couldn't be pulled off live by a simple four-piece band(without seriously compromising the original vision or playing to pre-recorded tracks, that is), the decision was made to abandon any notion that we would have to replicate what we committed to tape this time out. With that yoke off our backs, and no strict parameters defining what was permissible in genre or sonics, our only real concern was sifting through our respective catalogs for the right batch of tunes.

Going deep, some selections are decades old, others odd rejects from recent releases, and a few we conceived along the way. Each of us tapped, to revisit, a personal favorite from one of the other's prior endeavors. We lifted the usual barriers, allowing ourselves the leeway to do pretty much whatever struck us as cool, with no mind paid to occupying any particular lane or worry over making weight, and cut a record of songs we love for the sake of cutting a record of songs we love. It's as simple as that.

I think I just answered my own question. Sussed it out right here, I did.

Were it not for a hernia you wouldn't be reading this. That's right; a simple sub-in gig for fORMER's ailing drummer led me to connect with a guy who I'd only met in passing years ago. It was obvious to me after a few weeks that Denny was someone I wanted to work with, and soon after, the plan to make Nothing's Broken was hatched. I simply loved his songs and wanted to make a record where we made all the decisions and I didn't have to arm wrestle to get my artistic vision to become reality. I think the result is a damn fine record, and even though it likely won't become more than a footnote (if that) in rock and roll history, I'm really proud of the finished product and happy that I made a friend for life while making it. And all because of a hernia. Go figure.
