WEDNESDAY, MARCH 4, 2015 | Studio time! House Concert!
I’ll start the day in the studio of Rob Nold Audio to record a brand new song with special guests Victor & Penny and Their Loose Change Orchestra (bassist Rick Willoughby and clarinet player James Isaac!) This will be the first of a new series of singles I’ll be releasing this year. The songs will be available for download only until the time comes that I have 10-12 songs done. Then we’ll celebrate with an album release. What fun! I’ll be calling on some of my favorite bands and musicians from Kansas City and beyond to record a song with me. The final album will be filled with some of the most beautiful people and music makers I know. EXCITING!

About John Statz: After years of DIY touring everywhere from Eastern Europe to Mexico, the Wisconsinite who now resides in Colorado fell in with fellow Midwesterner Jeffrey Foucault, a critically acclaimed songwriter and veteran of the americana circuit. A fan of Statz’s last album (2012’s Old Fashioned, produced by Bo Ramsey), Foucault offered to produce his next record while the two were on tour together in Colorado.The resulting Tulsa is beautiful blend of soft americana and smooth folk with echoes of The Jayhawks and Whiskeytown. “John writes songs you can’t shake,” says Foucault. “They follow you around all day and run through your head at 3 a.m. Open hearted, horizon-line songs.”
“Jeff kicked my ass. He pushed me to crank out well-written songs,” continues Statz. “He’s such a great songwriter himself and I felt like I had to step up my game. And then there is the absolutely amazing band…” The band John speaks of features Billy Conway (Morphine) on drums, Mark Spencer (Son Volt) on electric guitars and pedal steel, Jeremy Moses Curtis (Booker T) on bass, Jeffrey Foucault on guitars and vocals, Caitlin Canty singing harmonies and Matt Lorenz on fiddle.
