Album was recorded remotely during quarantine
Jacksonville recording artist Cory Driscoll has released Eureka Springs, a nine-track concept album that tells the story of a father’s journey to America in search of redemption and understanding. Driscoll composed the organic-sounding project remotely during quarantine with nine musician pals from across the country. Stem by stem, Driscoll assembled an avant garde indie folk rock album that includes a colorful pallet of diverse instrumentation and storytelling that represents different regions of the United States.
“We set out to traverse the country from the coast to the heartland of the US through the movement of the record from song to song,” Driscoll states. “That was the thread we followed throughout the composition process.”
Named after the Arkansas town of Eureka Springs, the album incorporates fresh sounds from the tropical opener of “Ahead of My Heels” to the ambient title track, giving listeners the feeling they’ve just traversed from coast to coast. The album closes with the ominously haunting “Anonymous Water.”
Driscoll draws inspiration from classic acts like The Beatles, Talking Heads, Paul Simon, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, as well as newer acts like Modest Mouse, Bright Eyes, and Destroyer. Driscoll has produced a project that listeners will want to hear on any road trip.
The 33 minute album is available across all streaming platforms. In April, fans can pick up a limited run of 300 pressed vinyl copies through Long Jump Records.
