ONE STEP AHEAD OF YOUR PAST
PRE-ORDER NOW FOR INSTANT DOWNLOAD OF "IS IT WORTH IT"!
Recorded in Asheville, North Carolina's legendary Echo Mountain Recording Studios and co-produced / engineered by the man who put Echo Mountain on the map, Danny Kadar (Avett Brothers, Band of Horses, My Morning Jacket), One Step Ahead of Your Past is an audible journey down the periscope of Ben Musser’s young marriage and voyage into fatherhood, or in his own words, “a deeply personal collection of tunes from a period in which I became a husband and a father.” Filled with hooks both musical and lyrical, the songs explore the profound, vibrant, and mundane with humility and humor, acting both as mirror and prism for a life once out of site, but which now envelops the artist. Danny Kadar reflects, “All the love, angst, apprehension, jealousies, and joyful struggles that go with the beginnings of a family are touched upon. There’s an edge to the songs that belies the tender nature of the album. The humor may be cutting, but it is genuine. The sweetness of the love songs is never saccharine. This is a real accounting of love, marriage, and family.”
