ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Charleston, SC – Accolades have followed Dew's previous releases: Jim "The Critic" Voigt, of Charleston’s radio station 105.5 FM The Bridge, said with regard to Dew’s last release, (The Day. The Dog. The Girl.) “Maybe the best local stuff I've heard in the singer-songwriter genre." The Post and Courier's long-time music critic Devin Grant wrote, "The Residency EP gives seven solid reasons why fans of local music should pay attention to Dew." “Exhale Through Your Feet,” Dew’s most impressive effort to date, is poised to gain regional and national attention and airplay.

Dew wrote the music for "Exhale Through Your Feet" in his log-cabin studio that overlooks Charleston Harbor. As with his previous recordings, Dew performs virtually every instrument on the album: vocals, drums, guitar and bass. The album was recorded in three noteworthy Southeast studios. Following up on his last successful record, Dew re-enlisted the talents of producer Patrick Boyd of Sioux Sioux Studios (who has worked with Slow Runner, Noises 10, and Isaac Slade of The Fray) also supplemented Dew’s tracks with personal performances. A handful of talented guest musicians also compliment the record including four female vocalists. Notably enlisted are Asheville music scene darlings Mimi Bell (who has recorded with The Avett Brothers and G. Love) and national recording artist Shannon Whitworth.

"Exhale Through Your Feet," fits comfortably into both the singer-songwriter and pop-rock genres, although the style is completely Dew’s own. Some tracks will beckon Americana fans, (“I Wanted It Too” and “Hartwell”) and while possibly not by design, others are undeniably radio-ready, pop-rock gems (“Everyone Can Sing” and “Shoes”). The album is well rounded and sure to attract listeners from a wide demographic.

On this nine-song, full-length production, Dew took a different tact to his previous style of writing and recording by avoiding the pressures of worrying about a song's potential popularity - a mind-set that, in his opinion, could have clouded his creative vision in the past. "In hindsight, on my last few records I focused too much energy into crafting a radio hit rather than trying to lay down what I heard in my head. This time I just wanted to remain true to each song and not second-guess or manipulate anything beyond it’s natural realm,” Dew explains.

Dew continues to pursue music on his own terms. His music career spans numerous accolades, scholarships and achievements such as sharing the stage with national acts and having previously owned Charleston’s legendary music venue, The Music Farm. It was a period in which Dew states allowed him to “interact and gain inspiration from songwriting heroes like Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) and Ben Folds.”
