Mississippi-bred and Texas-based singer and guitarist Jason Eady has a catalog that runs from blues-infused Americana to a bare-bones reimagining of classic country, and a talent for writing songs that earn him comparisons to Dwight Yoakam, Willie Nelson, Jon Pardi and Joe Ely. He released his seventh full-length album, “I Travel On,” last year. Eady will play a special solo show at The Palms Playhouse on Thursday, July 25 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $21 ($12 with student ID). Since the 2005 release of his debut album, Eady has brought a balance of unguarded honesty and poetic sophistication to his songwriting. Especially in contrast to the more introspective music of his previous two albums, his newest release has a looser, livelier, more groove-driven sound than ever before.  But while “I Travel On” brims with a feel-good spontaneity, the Fort Worth-based artist continues to instill each song with the subtle insight and emotional depth that makes his music powerful.  In another departure from his previous work—including 2014’s critically-lauded “Daylight & Dark” and 2012’s “AM Country Heaven,” which debuted in the top 40 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart—Eady wrote most of “I Travel On” in a month-long burst of creativity.  “Normally I take my pick of the songs I’ve come up with since the last album, but this time I was writing specifically for this record,” he said. “And because the album’s so groove-centered, I focused on the way words rolled off the tongue and how they moved with the music. If something felt good to sing, I just let it be instead of going back and editing myself like I might’ve done in the past.” This is the first album Eady has recorded with his usual road band—a lineup whose rhythm section is made up of musicians from an R&B/roots background, and whose lead players hail from the bluegrass world. With Grammy-nominated duo Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley joining them in the studio, “I Travel On” captures the energy and kinetic camaraderie the band brings to shows and won them attention while sharing stages with the likes of Sturgill Simpson. Co-produced with Eady’s longtime collaborator Kevin Welch, “I Travel On” proves the power of that approach with the joyfully stomping album-opener “I Lost My Mind in Carolina.” Rolling Stone premiered the lead single, “Calaveras County,” which harkens to the singer’s fondness for character-driven and story songs.  Tickets are available at Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters, Armadillo Music in Davis, Davids’ Broken Note in Woodland, online via The Palms’ website and Eventbrite, and at the door if not sold out.  For more information, visit palmsplayhouse.com and jasoneady.com.]]>
