Dan Blakeslee solo acoustic album “Road Hymns” to be released August 25, 2023

Here is a little background information on the concept of this album. I recorded the songs for “Road Hymns” in locations all over New England with a field recorder in places that have been sacred to me throughout my musical career and my life. Each song has a different audible experience for the listener. For example: I recorded a song under a lilac tree in an arboretum and you can hear the sounds of birds overhead. Another was recorded by the ocean on Marginal Way in Ogunquit, ME with the waves caressing the shore, also in an old chapel on Monhegan Island in Maine ten miles out to sea, yet another in my Mom’s greenhouse and one in the cabin of my Dad’s small sailboat. These spaces I recorded these songs in have been there for me in the darkest of times and when things were the most fruitful always centering me. This album will be released on August 25, 2023!
