Matt Bauer: The Jessamine County Book of the Living

Matt Bauer: The Jessamine County Book of the Living

On June 7th, Crossbill Records releases Matt Bauer's new album, The Jessamine County Book of the Living. Recently, New York Magazine hailed Bauer's newest collection of "haunting, weird folk music" as brilliant! "Blacklight Horses", the lead single off of the album, captures Bauer's orchestral folk at its finest and guest vocal support from the lovely Jolie Holland certainly helps. Bauer will be touring the US throughout June and July and you can expect to hear a lot more from Matt Bauer as he preps for the release of this gorgeous record!

"There is an economic darkness on this recording. Lonely banjos ride along sharp ridges, horns swirl in cold creeks, and there is subtle sense of loss in Bauer's music that leaves the impression of a man whose demons will not be stilled." – Skyscraper

“The Island Moved In The Storm inhabits a strange, beautiful, spiritually satisfying world that is as far from the ordinary run of indie-folk as Kentucky is from Brooklyn.” -Dusted

"An album of fragile beauty"- Under the Radar

"One of this year's finest records" - Muzzle of Bees

"He's channeling something heavy, preparing the rest of us for a darkness or beauty that we aren't yet ready to receive. We believe Matt Bauer is a prophet." - Thrasher Magazine

"Matt Bauer plays a ghostly sort of folk, wreathed in delicate webs of banjo and whispered with a lightness Sam Beam might envy." - Philadelphia Weekly
"Matt Bauer whispers the details in a beautiful feathery rasp, inviting you join him as and eyewitness to the secrets of this sad story." - WFMU
