Sleepercar:: West Texas

Jim Ward is set to release a full length album of Americana tomorrow, by way of his project Sleepercar and its’ new record West Texas. Inspired in part by the dusty trails of West Texas, the final recording took place in a second-story loft in El Paso— with Matthew Schmitz playing drums and recording the drum tracks over the course of a year or so. Ward recorded all the guitars, keyboards and pianos at his own home studio with Chris Heinrich, Gabe Gonzalez, and Ward’s father Jeff, rounding out the recordings on guitar, piano, and bass respectively (Heinrich-pedal steel/guitar, Gonzalez-piano Jeff Ward-bass).
