John Moreland has released his new album Big Bad Luv. A record about love, faith and the human condition.
Moving from Kentucky to Tulsa when he was ten, John fronted hardcore and punk bands throughout high school years before feeling the pull in folk and country music. He has released largely self-produced albums every other year since 2011.
Big Bad Luv was recorded down in Little Rock, mostly with a crew of Tulsa friends: John Calvin Abney on piano and guitar, back from Tulsa Heat; Aaron Boehler on bass; Paddy Ryan on drums; Jared Tyleron dobro. And then Lucero’s Rick Steff on piano. It was later mixed by Tchad Blake.
“I always start off writing whatever comes naturally,” Moreland says. “Once I’ve got seven or eight of those, then I’ll take stock and look at what I’ve got, figure out what belongs on a record together, and what might not. Then I’ll figure out what kind of songs I need.”
