Simon Joyner from Omaha, Nebraska is one incredible songwriter and he is now back with a new album Step Into The Earthquake that is out now on Ba Da Bing Records (USA) and BB*Island (Europe). I completely fell in love with his previous album Grass, Branch & Bone and these days it’s one of my favourite albums of this current decade. Step Into Earthquake probably doesn’t become as important to me and quite frankly that’s pretty much impossible. However, this new double is also a magnificent album and a master-class of songwriting. I’ve had most of these songs on rotation for months, because I bought the Phoenix demos during the ACLU benefit on Bandcamp, but they’ve kept their magic throughout the year. This is Earthquake from the new Simon Joyner album.
