Jonah Tolchin & Helen Rose
Immediately after Jonah Tolchin finished recording his new album, 'Thousand Mile Night,' he got behind the wheel and lived it, driving from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, all the way back to his native New Jersey with guitarist Lucas Hamren in one straight shot. By the time the car finally coasted into Hamren's driveway in the early dawn light, the odometer had accumulated 998 miles. The journey wasn't quite over yet, though. Tolchin said his goodbyes, gathered his things from the back seat, and began the walk to his childhood home on nearby Clover Lane. It was precisely two more miles.
The universe is full of signs if you're open to them, and for Jonah Tolchin, there could be no clearer omen than the mileage of that epic trip: he'd had made the perfect album for the perfect moment in his life. Recorded at the legendary FAME Studios (Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin), 'Thousand Mile Night' charts the young songwriter's remarkable growth, both personally and artistically, as he digs deep into the roots of American music with a distinctly modern perspective, tackling everything from love and marriage to life on the road to loneliness and depression with a deft lyrical touch.
The album follows Tolchin's acclaimed Yep Roc debut, 'Clover Lane,' which was recorded in Nashville with a slew of special guests including Los Lobos' Steve Berlin and Deer Tick's John McCauley.
