This is my second full length solo album. I wrote, recorded and mixed the album over a period of several months, mostly in my own warehouse apartment downtown Cincinnati in a neighborhood called Over-The-Rhine. I see the album as my first real outing as a producer. Having cut my teeth as a songwriter in the moments just before pro-tools and Logic software made home recording ubiquitous, I postponed a serious foray into recording for as long as possible, fearing that the technical would hinder my creative workflow. The opposite has turned out to be the case, and I now see the studio (digital and physical) as just another instrument and another field of expression. I took a lot of sonic chances working my way through this record.

Drums were played by my long-time rhythm collaborator Dan McQuinn and recorded by John McGuire. John also recorded some vocals and mixed two songs, “Ladders” and “Magic”.

“Hedges’ compositions — which range from broadly atmospheric to more direct and upbeat — are elegant, his songwriting mature and accomplished and his soundscapes provocative and full of depth.”

Machines & Dreams (BMI) / Blumpco

My debut solo album produced, recorded, and mixed in the dead of winter in a cabin on frozen Elk Lake in Michigan with acclaimed producer Blumpy.

Most of these songs were written in Lexington, KY while I was working at a winery. The record is largely about beginnings and endings.
