Lost and Found
Available late 2018
Jeff Burnham is a singer-songwriter whose work builds on the Americana and folk-rock tradition. After several years writing for and performing with his band Tuesday Saints, Jeff has redefined his sound with a solo project called Jeff Burnham & the Insiders. The new band features violist/singer Lindsey Clark and multi-instrumentalist/singer Seth Adam. Jeff recently completed a solo record called Lost and Found due for release in late 2018.
Music columnist and author Chip McCabe describes his first record, Hard Luck Town (with Tuesday Saints), as “down home and soulful… the perfect complement to an album collection that includes acts like Son Volt and Wilco.”
The new songs on Lost and Found came to life at Dirt Floor Recording and Production Studio with Seth Adam on drums, Dennis Cartier on bass, and producer/musician Eric Lichter on piano, Hammond organ, pedal steel, and harmony vocals. The music has an acoustic singer-songwriter aesthetic with a rock and roll feel like a treasured Tom Petty or Neil Young record. Nostalgia and reverence for the ordinary life play an important part in the lyrics.
Jeff performs regularly in Connecticut and throughout the region as a solo act, as a duo, trio, or with the full band. Venues include performance halls, arts & cultural listening spaces, city sponsored music events, music festivals, breweries and bars.
I find a lot of inspiration in old spaces. I’ve been working with my son and brother to restore an old barn for the last few years and that’s where I get most of my songwriting done. Being away from daily distractions helps me focus on the creative side of writing and making demos.
We just wrapped up our third Live at the Barn show for the summer. Thanks to everyone for coming out to a see live music under the stars or in the barn. Thanks to all of our performers over the past couple of years including Steve Rogers, Frank Critelli, Lines West, the Meadows Brothers, Seth Adam, Eric Michael Lichter, and Brian Dolzani. Don't worry, we'll do some intimate shows inside the barn this fall and winter for sure.
Please excuse my radio silence... I've been tucked away in the studio working on a new EP with Eric Lichter at Dirt Floor Studios. I'm excited about this one, as we're already digging the way things are sounding! I hope to have this new batch of recorded songs out to you this summer. Tracks include 'You're Alright,' 'Ohio Grey,' 'St. Philip Avenue,' 'Lost and Found,' and 'The One.' I'll let you know as soon as the release date comes closer!
My new website is here! Have a look around. Let me know what you like, and/or what you don't. This is a work in progress, so thank you in advance for your patience!
