Jerry DeCicca and The Black Swans have been winning hearts with their highly unique and beautiful folk sound since the early 2000s. For their fourth LP, Don't Blame The Stars, the band started recording live in a garage in Columbus, Ohio, in May of 2008. The album features a batch of songs about being agnostic and finding meaning in friendships, identity, and music instead of a higher power. Often with spoken word introductions, the album models itself after Willie Nelson's Yesterday's Wine, but whereas Willie is speaking to God, Black Swans' frontman Jerry DeCicca is talking to the listener, or himself, or no one. The making of the album stalled out when Noel Sayre, founding member and violinist, died that July in a swimming accident. The Black Swans returned to this recording several years later with the subjects of the songs taking on a more profound resonance.
