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. High on Tulsa Heat dropped in 2015. 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.
Some days, being John Moreland has to hurt. As others bury experiences and stifle regrets, Moreland pokes old wounds until you're sure they've got to be bleeding again. It's painful. But in Moreland's care, it's also breathtakingly beautiful. With the release of his third solo album High on Tulsa Heat, he offers another round of the lyrics-first, gorgeously plaintive songs that have learned him devoted listeners across the country.
Recorded July-October 2014 in Bixby, Oklahoma and Norman, Oklahoma.
Produced and mixed by John Moreland. Mastered by Stephen Egerton.
