MAGNET Exclusive: Premiere Of Joseph Childress’ “White Castle Creek Mother,” From His Upcoming Self-Titled Album

Singer/songwriter Joseph Childress returns October 6 with the self-titled follow-up (on Empty Cellar) to 2013 debut album The Rebirths. Prior to writing the songs on the new LP, San Francisco resident Childress spent time traveling around the West, living out of his car, riding trains and working on a cattle ranch. He then went to Portland to record the album with Mike Coykendall (M. Ward, Bright Eyes, She & Him), who added guitar, percussion, fiddle and bass, as well as a supporting cast of musicians including Aaron Robinson (Sean Rowe) and Joey Ficken (Swords). “I tried to keep it very organic, not a lot of special treatments,” says Childress. “My goal was to make it sound as if we were playing in your living room.”

We are proud to premiere first single “White Castle Creek Mother” today on magnetmagazine.com. Check it out below
