As one grows into adulthood, remaining steadfastly single-minded about one's pursuits gets increasingly difficult. The musician becomes a band mate navigating the creative energies of those around them. He becomes a boyfriend, a husband, a businessman. She becomes a lover, a mother, a practitioner of her art. Life becomes multifarious, and the pressure to not let the disparate threads of a chaotic life unravel can cause strain on any relationship.
Mason Jennings on his new album, Wild Dark Metal:
This record was written and then recorded during greatly varying days for me. Great days like Halloween with my kids next to very rough ones when I had to deal with the death of a friend (more than one). Some amazing folks helped me make it: Sean Carey plays on it, Brian Joseph recorded it, Shawn Everett mixed it with me at his studio in LA. It deals with loss, love, suffering, longing, and mystery. I hope it finds the listener who is looking for it. I hope it brings deep medicine. I hope you play it loud. - Mason
