Album Premiere: Kendell Marvel’s ‘Solid Gold Sounds’, the Latest from Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound
Renowned songwriter Kendell Marvel is currently making a name for himself as a performing artist. Marvel, who is currently in the middle of a tour opening for Chris Stapleton, has recorded a new album set for release on Friday. The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach is releasing the record via his Easy Eye Sound and co-produced Solid Gold Sounds along with Dave “Fergie” Ferguson (John Prine, Del McCoury, Mac Wiseman).
Today we offer the premiere stream of the album. Marvel reflects, “Solid Gold Sounds is a record that sounds like it could’ve been made in 1975 and that’s exactly what we wanted. It still has the grit of my last record, meshed with a much more mellow, easy-sounding vibe. Working with Dan Auerbach, Dave Ferguson and Allen Parker along with the Easy Eye Band was the most creative, fun time I’ve ever had in the studio. I cherish every single moment of making it.”
Dan Auerbach adds, “Kendell has spent years behind the scenes in Nashville, helping others reach the spotlight but now it’s his turn to get a little shine. Solid Gold Sounds is his story, told in his own voice with his own words. I’m so proud of him for taking this giant step and I’m proud of this album we made together.”
Solid Gold Sounds streams below and is now available for pre-order.
