Tyler Ramsey Evokes Nick Drake on Sublime 'For The Morning'

 
 

via Glide Magazine

Tyler Ramsey literally had nothing to prove when he opted to put his solo career in second gear and join forces with Band of Horses for a tour in 2007. That stint with the group became a decade long association, one that found him splitting his time between his individual pursuits and writing and recording with the group as a whole. It didn’t deter him from pursuing his own muse at the same time — in fact, he was able to further spur his creativity by making prime contributions to the band’s repertoire as well — but by 2017 it became clear that the lanky singer and guitarist’s talents were best served by the forlorn ballads he continued to record on his own.

Now, four albums in, that premise is clearer than ever, courtesy of an album that’s so sensual and sublime, it’s easy to imagine folks touting him as an heir apparent to none other than Nick Drake. Not that the comparison hasn’t been tossed out before, but if anyone most deserve it, Ramsey’s clearly the one. The album title alone evokes a dewey-eyed perspective, a dreamlike state that finds the world reckoning with dreams that were sown in the immediate hours before. Certain songs — “Your Whole Life,” “Darkest Sounds,” “White Coat,” “Firewood,” and “Cheap Summer Dress” being the most apparent — convey a sense of hushed circumspect, a sound that’s low-key, lethargic, but enveloped by a breathless beauty too tangible to deny. It can seem contradictory at times — a song like “A Dream of Home” is both earnest and upbeat, while “Breaking a Heart” recalls Neil Young sounding resilient and yet resigned. Indeed, Ramsey has that ability to entice his listeners into sharing his solitude, and once lured inside those intimate environs, they’re engaged, ensconced and content to deliberate on any tender perspective.

Ultimately, For The Morning is an album of meditative moods, one that demands more than a momentary embrace. It speaks in soft tones, a perfect way to contemplate possibilities and whatever cerebral setting the day may hold in store.

Tyler Ramsey is as surprised as anyone that it’s been almost eight years since his last solo album. But there are some pretty good reasons for that gap, most notably that for six of those years, Ramsey served as lead guitarist for the folk-rock sensation Band of Horses.

“I was fully absorbed in touring and doing a couple of records with the band, and time flew by as it does when you’re wrapped up in a project,” Ramsey says. “I didn’t feel like it had been that long; when I hear now the amount of time that’s passed, it’s surprising to me because I’ve been able to be creative. Hopefully there won’t be a big gap of time again.”

Part of the reason that Ramsey can work a little faster on his own music now is that he left Band of Horses in 2017 after several intense cycles of touring and recording.

There are moments in Ramsey’s songs that are reminiscent of Neil Young in his folk-music phase, and others that bring to mind the chiming country-rock guitars and rich vocal harmonies of bands like The Byrds or the Eagles, and he explores those sounds to the fullest on his just-out album “For the Morning.” The idyllic arrangements were inspired by the bucolic scenery around his home in the mountains outside Asheville, North Carolina, but the album itself has more restless origins.

“It’s a record that represents a lot of change,” Ramsey says. “It’s a big shift. I’d attribute that to constant having moved into being a dad, making decisions about moving forward in my career, that was all going on when I was writing the songs.”

In fact, some of the songs were written when Ramsey was still part of Band of Horses, most notably “A Dream of Home,” a harmony-drenched midtempo rocker about being on the road and thinking of home.

 
 

“That song reflects my life and being torn between the path I was on and a simpler, more grounded way,” Ramsey says. “That reflects that yearning for a different path.”

Even though Ramsey is happier as a solo artist on a smaller scale than Band of Horses, he still struggles with the conflict of pursuing his music and spending time with his wife and young daughter.

“When I walk out the door to go on tour, I know that I’m going to do what I’ve been preparing myself to do my whole life,” he says. “I’m torn; but the flip side is that when I come home, I’m 100 percent home. I can hang out with my daughter all the time. I get this solid block of time where it’s us hanging out and doing everything we want to do together.”

The “For the Morning” album is rich with intricate, layered, full-band arrangements, which will make things interesting when Ramsey plays the material solo in a show at Horizon Records on Saturday.

“My goal is to write songs that people can get engaged with, with just a guitar and a voice,” he says. “My hope is that I’m writing songs that are engaging enough and people won’t think there’s anything missing.”

The show is part of Horizon’s celebration of Record Store Day, a day that recognizes independent brick-and-mortar record stores around the country.

“It’s important to keep record stores going all over the place,” Ramsey says. “It was where I discovered all of my new music. But the main thing is that I’ve known Gene Berger [the owner of Horizon] forever. He’s always been such a huge supporter of local music and music in general. He’s helped me out so much over the years, so when I talked to him about the possibility of doing it, it was a no-brainer to get in there and play.”

Sounds: Tyler Ramsey // A Dream of Home

via Left Bank Magazine

There’s something about spring that changes me. Sure, it makes me want to open up all the windows, air out the house, scrub the baseboards, and give away clothes, but beneath the flurry of activity, there’s a grounding within me, like my feet are planted a little more firmly on the earth. I want to slow my pace, turn off my phone, watch the sun rise and set, and take a long, deep breath.

Asheville, North Carolina’s Tyler Ramsey‘s “A Dream of Home” wraps all of those thoughts and feelings up in one song. The former Band of Horse’s guitarist and co-songwriter’s latest track is warm and root-bound, a solid oak tree in a tempest of quick and dirty tracks that come and go like a cloud in the sky. It’s textured, a little worn, soft to the touch and easy on the ears. I’ve got it on repeat, and not just to write this review; it’s exactly what my soul has needed.

(I also immediately pre-ordered the upcoming album, For The Morning.)

Settle down, take a deep breath, and stream “A Dream of Home” here:

Listen: Tyler Ramsey, "Evening Country"

In Their Words: “A couple of years ago my band and I started messing around with some of my older and more pared-down songs and trying to bring them into a band setting. ‘Evening Kitchen’ was a song that I had written for the Band of Horses record Infinite Arms and when we did that record it stood out because it was in contrast with the rest of the album and really bare bones. A lot of that album was lushly produced and I thought having the song recorded with a single acoustic guitar and vocals would help balance things. It worked well in the sequence of that album and led to a lot of the more intimate moments in our live shows and the direction we headed in for the live Ryman acoustic album.

“This version, called ‘Evening Country,’ was a way to reimagine the song and a chance to put it into a new frame with some truly amazing musicians. It was recorded in Louisville, Kentucky, with Seth Kauffman (Floating Action), Kevin Ratterman (Lalaland Studio, My Morning Jacket, Ray Lamontagne), and I doing the basic tracking. Seth had worked with pedal steel guitarist Russ Pahl before and we were able to get him to play on it (I still jump up and down when I hear his playing!). And the goosebump-inducing harmony vocals were sung by Molly Parden and Thad Cockrell and recorded at the Fleetwood Shack in Nashville by my old friend Bill Reynolds (former Band of Horses bassist). The opportunity to revisit this song in the way that we did has given it a new energy for me as well as new meaning.

“A wild memory of this song: years ago we were playing at Bonnaroo after Infinite Arms had been released. We finished our set and climbed down off the stage and our manager came up and told us to go back up and play a couple more songs because Bruce Springsteen had come onto our side stage to watch us play just as we were walking off. We ran back up and ended up playing ‘Evening Kitchen’ last, and all I could think about the whole time was that there was Bruce Springsteen standing fifteen feet away from me and watching us play this song I’d written — don’t f*ck it up! We made it through and headed back down off the stage and there he was with that Bruce Springsteen smile and handshakes all around. Our monitor man Jon Cronin told me afterwards that he heard Bruce say ‘That’s a good song!’ That’s enough for me!” — Tyler Ramsey

Tyler Ramsey reworks old Band Of Horses single with pedal steel guitar on “Evening Country”

 
 

via The Line of Best Fit

Tyler Ramsey, formerly of Band Of Horses, has reworked the band's "Evening Kitchen" single with some pedal steel guitar, renaming it "Evening Country".

"Evening Kitchen", originally written by Ramsey, appeared on Band Of Horses' Infinite Arms album in 2010 as an intimate piano piece.

Having left the band, the former guitarist has since reworked the track, injecting some pedal steel guitar, and renaming it "Evening Country".

"Evening Country" is the third single to be shared from Ramsey's first solo album n eight years, For The Morning, after earlier singles "A Dream Of Home" and "Firewood".

On his follow up to 2011's The Valley Wind, Ramsey says, "This album came about in the midst of a lot of change. The birth of my daughter, a move to the country, and the steady realization that I needed to switch the road I was on in my life as a musician and songwriter. I tried to express and balance images of life as a constantly traveling and touring musician with the more connected life I live at home and the time I spend hiking in the mountains where I live."

"Evening Country" is out now. For The Morning drops 5 April via Fantasy / Virgin EMI. Tyler Ramsey will play London's St. Pancras Old Church on 20 May.

Tyler Ramsey's 'White Coat' Tingles With Beauty

 
 

via Clash Music

Tyler Ramsey was one of the driving forces behind Band Of Horses, before he decided to take a step back.

Now based in Asheville, North Carolina, he looks out on to one of North America's most pristine landscapes, a lush, beautiful, effervescent canvas of green and yellow.

Pure natural beauty, Tyler Ramsey translates this into music, channelling this sense of location, this reaching into the past, on his new solo album.

'For The Morning' will be released on April 6th, with Tyler touching down on UK soil for show at London's St Pancras Church on May 20th.

"This album came about in the midst of a lot of change,” explains Ramsey. “The birth of my daughter, a move to the country, and the steady realisation that I needed to switch the road I was on in my life as a musician and songwriter."

"I tried to express and balance images of life as a constantly traveling and touring musician with the more connected life I live at home and the time I spend hiking in the mountains where I live."

We're able to share gorgeous, palatial new cut 'White Coat', and it tingles with a raw, unfettered beauty.

Neatly pieced together, it's a folk-hewn piece of Americana with a pastoral gaze, a gentle, heavenly ditty.

On “White Coat,” Tyler Ramsey Strums His Guitar in the Woods

Tyler Ramsey, the former Band of Horses co-songwriter and lead guitarist, announced the release of his first major offering since leaving BoH, For the Morning. The new album was written and produced by Ramsey, inspired by his time spent in the mountains outside Asheville, North Carolina where he lives, amongst a verdant pastoral landscape; sonically, it intertwines country, rock, and folk. Guest musicians who make appearances on the album include Joan Shelley, Thad Cockrell, and Molly Parden to sing harmonies, plus pedal steel player Russ Paul, Nathan Salsburg, and Gareth Liddiard from Tropical Fuck Storm on guitar.

“White Coat” is rife with pretty guitarpicking, the steady thump of a drum like a heartbeat, and Ramsey’s languorous vocals. You can practically see him strolling through the woods with his dog or sitting with his wife on the porch watching the sunset (“You went out across the river to lay down in the sunlight where it filters through the pines”).

“It’s a kind of love song that pulls a lot of visual images from the places I spend my time hiking in Western North Carolina,” Ramsey said of the track. “It’s also a nod to some of the music on my album A Long Dream About Swimming Across the Sea. I had some amazing help with the violin ideas by Scott Moore from Louisville, KY. The middle section was a banjo song I wrote for my daughter that I snuck into the song. I love writing songs that have long compositions and instrumental sections, and ‘White Coat’ developed into one of those songs.”

Listen to the track below.

Former Band of Horses Guitarist Tyler Ramsey Returns With 'Firewood': Exclusive Premiere

 
 

via Billboard

Tyler Ramsey prefers to stay mum about the "little bit of a dark time" that preceded For the Morning, the singer and guitarist's first album since leaving Band of Horses in 2017 after a 10-year run. But a track like "Firewood," premiering exclusively below, reflects on coming out of that time.

"It's about trying to remember that there is light and better things coming up," Ramsey, whose wife gave birth to a daughter while the family moved to North Carolina leading up to the album, tells Billboard. "A lot of dynamics were going on in my life at the time with some people I was having to keep coming with. I'm trying to dance around the subject a little bit ... 'cause, really, I'd love to let people decide for themselves what it means to them."

That said, "Firewood" -- with its ringing acoustic guitars, spare arrangement and elegiac melody -- also shows off the spirit of musical adventure Ramsey wanted to apply to For the Morning. "It's a song I worked on for a while," he explains. "It's a story and a cohesive piece, but it's got a lot of levels to it for sure. I always appreciated Paul McCartney or people like that -- their songs came out of nowhere with a new part or new idea. I tried to apply that to [‘Firewood']; it kind of builds steadily and then has this big ending that takes you in a different direction, which is fun to do in a song."

Ramsey started writing the songs on For the Morning -- due April 5 on Fantasy Records -- while he was still in Band of Horses, compiling "fairly thorough demos at home" before taking them into La La Land studios in Louisville. He populated the session with both friends and musicians he hadn't met before, including Russ Paul on pedal steel and Paul Nathan Salsburg and Gareth Liddiars (The Drones) on guitar, while Joan Shelley, Thad Cockrell and Molly Parden provided backing vocals.

"One of the goals was to have people come in and play on it a little more than I'd done in the past," Ramsey explains. "I really wanted some harmony vocals from other people, so I had a great cast of characters come in and sing harmonies and some great instrumentals come in and play. It really elevated the songs, at least for me; when I listen to them, I get super excited about the parts they did. It turned out really cool and was definitely what I hoped to accomplish."

Ramsey is in the midst of a U.S. tour that started back in February and will include performances at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. He then heads to Europe for dates starting May 20 and has signed on to play at Mountain Jam on June 15 in Bethel, N.Y. And while his departure from Band of Horses is "another touchy subject," Ramsey is clearly happy to be the master of his own destiny now.

"This was just something I had to do," he says. "I was in that band for a decade, which is a long time. I wanted to move in a direction where I felt a little more like I was doing something that felt creative. Even boiling down to scheduling with people when you're in a band with five people is hard. It's hard to say no to anything at that point because you don't ever want to take work away from your friends. But after my daughter was born, I wanted to be more selective with my time. So that and wanting to feel more creative made me go in this direction where I'm at now."

Featured Single: Band of Horses’ Tyler Ramsey swoons with “A Dream of Home”

via Ear To The Ground

Tyler Ramsey lives near Asheville, NC and likes to reflect the sweetness of his life, member of the band Band of Horses, in his music. This lush folk rock track is everything that’s right about music production in 2019.

It’s easy to come up with comparisons like Neil Young, but honestly it’s the way that Ramsey’s “complete package” comes together that has us excited. It’s what we love about others in this space like Noah Gundersen and David Ramirez. This single’s got us looking forward to the rest of the music this chill folk rocker has coming soon.

Former Band of Horses co-writer and lead guitarist Tyler Ramsey has debuted “A Dream of Home,” the lead single from his forthcoming solo album For the Morning, due out April 5 from Fantasy Records.

Ramsey drew inspiration from the wilderness that surrounds his North Carolina home to create the mood for his folksy new album and, lyrically, to carry its messages of perseverance and remaining grounded during times of uncertainty.

Ramsey said in a statement accompanying For the Morning’s announcement:

This album came about in the midst of a lot of change. The birth of my daughter, a move to the country, and the steady realization that I needed to switch the road I was on in my life as a musician and songwriter. I tried to express and balance images of life as a constantly traveling and touring musician with the more connected life I live at home and the time I spend hiking in the mountains where I live.

Tyler Ramsey Announces New Album, For The Morning

Out April 5th on Fantasy Records

 
 

On Tour Starting February 19th, Tickets Available HERE

Pre-Order For The Morning

Today, Tyler Ramsey, the former Band of Horses co-writer and lead guitarist, announces the release of his exquisite new album, For The Morning, out April 5th, 2019 on Fantasy Records. Inspired by the lush, deep green and stunning landscape of his home in the mountains outside of Asheville, NC, Ramsey threads rock, country and folk into a rich, new branch of American roots music all his own. Listen to the absorbing, wistful lead track, “A Dream of Home” HERE and pre-order For The Morning HERE

"This album came about in the midst of a lot of change,” explains Ramsey. “The birth of my daughter, a move to the country, and the steady realization that I needed to switch the road I was on in my life as a musician and songwriter. I tried to express and balance images of life as a constantly traveling and touring musician with the more connected life I live at home and the time I spend hiking in the mountains where I live."

For the Morning, written and produced by Ramsey, connects the listener to this setting with dexterous guitar fingerpicking and radiant acoustic piano; affecting pedal steel and gorgeous languid vocals. Ramsey, along with engineer Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket, Ray LaMontagne, Joan Shelley, Strand of Oaks) and Seth Kauffman of Floating Action (and touring musician for Jim James, Ray LaMontagne) recorded a clutch of Ramsey demos at La La Land studios in Louisville, KY. For The Morning is complemented by spots from several guest musicians, including Joan Shelley, Thad Cockrell, and Molly Parden who sing harmony on various tracks, the pedal steel player Russ Paul, Nathan Salsburg and Gareth Liddiard from The Drones on guitar.

 
 

“A Dream of Home,” one of the album’s many standouts, was written on a day off during a Horses tour. Ramsey holed himself up in a hotel room outside of Nashville and began writing about that familiar tug of greener grass, wondering if every musician’s dream of touring the world to play for huge audiences was actually all it was cracked up to be. The absorbing centerpiece “Breaking A Heart” glows with sublime piano chords and beautiful guitar playing while Ramsey’s pristine vocals are left hanging in the air like mist. Elsewhere “Evening Country” is an updated, country music version of the song “Evening Kitchen” he wrote for the Band of Horses’ Grammy-nominated album Infinite Arms that swings with delicate harmonies and pedal steel.

Ramsey will spend much of 2019 on the road with dates across North America, the UK and Europe. The initial tour begins February 19th in Lexington, KY with indie rock musician Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket) followed by multiple showcases at this year’s SXSW Festival in Austin, TX, appearances at Willie Nelson’s Luck Reunion, Mountain Jam and solo dates with Strand of Oaks.
