Edwin McCain’s New Album “MERCY BOUND” in Stores Today
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Edwin McCain releases his new album today, “MERCY BOUND” (429 Records), in the midst of an extensive tour that takes him throughout the country over the next few months. The new album is driven by songs he wrote with Maia Sharp (who also produced) including his powerful track “Boom,” written in the aftermath of his mother’s battle with cancer.
McCain’s proven gift for connecting with listeners on deep emotional levels through his evocative voice and songwriting has fueled a 20 year career and on “MERCY BOUND,” that talent is in full flower. On this, his tenth album, however, McCain has introduced a new dynamic by reconnecting with fellow singer songwriter Sharp (who performed a duet with McCain in 2004). Their ongoing musical interaction over the years continued to grow providing McCain with the ideal opportunity to mix things up. The result is “MERCY BOUND.” The album flows with McCain’s unmistakable style, yet hints at a newfound sense of collaboration and interpretation. Providing additional artistic input are songwriters Angie Aparo, Mark Addison, Anders Osborne and the guitar talents of Warren Haynes.
