This is like a meeting with an old friend. Valley Maker aka songwriter Austin Crane has signed a deal with Frenchkiss Records and his new album Rhododendron will be released on the 12th of October. Not that it has been that long really. The original release of the previous one was 2013 and the label reissue in 2015. Still it’s been a while since that beautiful voice has carried a new song into my arms and I’ve missed that. The first outtake from the forthcoming album is called Light On the Ground.
