about

Together with bandmates Magen Tracy, Dan Nicklin, Brendan Boogie and Paul Myers, Leavitt has created new EP, Someone Send a Signal. With more and more studios closing every day, the band wanted to capture a unique moment of togetherness whilst they still could and therefore recorded everything at Q Division’s Studio A in Somerville, Ma. The vintage microphones, amplifiers, instruments and classic Neve 8068 Console only added to the timeless feel of the sessions.

The resulting sound can best be described as ghost folk - as if the spirits of Neil Young, Wilco and Butch Walker met up late one night for a secret recording session down in Muscle Shoals. Blending elements of roots, americana and rock, it is the convergence of Leavitt’s musical journey to date. If you listen closely enough you can even hear the influence of 80’s hair metallers, and childhood heroes, Dokken on his guitar playing.

Working with producer and bandmate Dan Nicklin and Q Division engineer Pat Dicenso helped bring out the best of Leavitt and his group. From searching opener Relieve Me to the epic I Can Breathe Again through to the EP’s rousing closing track No Goodbye’s, No Replies it is apparent that letting go a little has freed Leavitt and allowed him to focus on leading his band to a higher plain. Having Pete Lyman (Jason Isbell and Chris Stapleton) at Infrasonic Sound master the record was the final piece of the puzzle and the result is there for all to hear on Someone Send a Signal.

Track Name: Take Me Back
Whatever happened to the days when I was happier
It was easy then
They were simple times
I’ve been lost for so long now I can’t make it out
I got turned around
I need to find a way

Take me back
And show me
Take me back
To who I was before
Take me back
And tell me
Take me back
So I can know myself again

I used to be pretty good at hiding
At least I thought
But maybe not
I never wanted to make a fool of anyone
Especially you
No that’s for me

Take me back
And show me
Take me back
To who I was before
Take me back
And tell me
Take me back
So I can know myself again
