Jason Eady
The eighth full-length from singer/songwriter Jason Eady, To The Passage Of Time first took shape in
a frenetic burst of creativity back in the doldrums of quarantine. Over the course of a three-day
period last August, the Fort Worth, Texas-based musician wrote more than half of the album,
locking himself in his bedroom and emerging only when he felt completely burnt out. I went in
thinking I was going to write just one songbut then the songs kept coming, and I didnt want to
break the spell, he recalls. Id go to sleep with the guitar by the bed, pick it back up when I woke
up the next morning, and do it all again. Id never really experienced anything like that before.
With its nuanced exploration of aging and loss and the fragility of life, To The Passage Of Time arrives
as the Mississippi-bred artists most lyrically complex and compelling work to date. As Eady reveals,
the albums understated power stems in part from the intentionality of the recording process, which
involved enlisting Band of Heathens Gordy Quist as producer and gathering many of Eadys
favorite musicians hes played with over the years (including Noah Jeffries on mandolin and fiddle,
Mark Williams on upright bass and cello, and Geoff Queen on Dobro, pedal steel, and lap steel). I
really love egoless playerspeople who know how to serve the song, notes Eady, who recorded at
The Finishing School in Austin and made ample use of the studios goldmine of vintage gear. We
started every song with just me on guitar, and if someone felt like they had a part to add, they had to
come forward and say what they heard there. Everything was built from the ground up, and because
of that theres no fillernobody playing to show off or take up space.
On the albums exquisite centerpiece French Summer Suna devastating epic astoundingly
captured in the very first takeEady shares one of his most riveting pieces of storytelling yet. My
grandfather fought at Battle of Anzio in Italy in World War II, and a few years ago on tour I went to
visit the beach where the battle took place, says Eady. I was struck by how small the beach wasI
realized that if my grandfather had made one wrong move he wouldve been killed, and I wouldnt
be standing there thinking those thoughts. I ended up writing this song about how when someone
dies in war, it isnt just killing that person: its killing the generations of people who would have
come from them. Building to a shattering plot twist in its final moments, French Summer Sun
drifts between its somberly sung chorus and spoken-word verses, attaining an unlikely transcendence
as Eady sheds equally poignant light on the horror of war and the ephemeral beauty of everyday
Looking back on the making of To The Passage Of Time, Eady points to such unexpected moments as
the recording of the album-opening Nothing On You. Apart from my guitar, the only two
instruments on that song are cello and steel guitarwhich is a combination Id never heard before,
and gave it a whole new character that took my breath away, he says. But for the most part, Eady
achieved a rare outcome in the albums production: a direct expression of his deep-rooted and
highly specific vision. I write my songs on acoustic guitar, so sometimes in the studio things take
different turns and end up not really matching with what you had in your head, says Eady. But
because of the approach we took with this album, theres hardly anything that came out different
from what Id envisioned. This is 100 percent the album I hoped I would make.
