John Moreland, the Tulsa, Okla.-based singer-songwriter whose notable fans range from Miranda Lambert to Rachel Maddow, recorded his first solo album in 2011, Earthbound Blues. He followed up with In The Throes in 2013. Moreland says he started out playing in hardcore punk bands before he started listening to music his father introduced him to, mostly folk and country.

Unlike most miserable singer-songwriters, there's very little self-pity in Moreland's writing, and there are numerous chronicles here of a man trying to reach beyond his own emotions to understand the lives of the people around him.

Recorded December 2011, March 2012, October-November 2012, and February-March 2013. Recorded at Dogwood Recording Service, Bixby, Oklahoma. Mastered by Chris Harris at Hook Echo Sound, Norman, Oklahoma. Produced by John Moreland.
