This is a great song off the new album from Austin based singer-songwriter Graham Weber. Graham is a favorite of much more well know Austin singer-songwriters (including Slaid Cleaves who took him under his wing and also recorded one of his songs). In his short time in Austin he’s gone from being the opener to being a headliner (I saw him MC a show at the cactus cafe at SXSW one year). His new record is called Women. I guess it’s in part a celebration and also a condemnation of that word. Graham was going through tough relationship times when he wrote and recorded the songs but also he has enlisted a treasure trove of Austin women to sing on it (Carrie Rodriguez, Amanda Shires, BettySoo, Dana Falconberry, Bonnie Whitmore, Leslie Stevens). I’ve written about Graham here and here.
I asked Graham if I could share the song “Lander, WY.” It’s a gentle song about running from your problems. Pre-order Women by contacting Graham (email@example.com) or via Bandcamp here.
PS If you won’t take my word on it check out this review of Women in the Austin Chronicle.
