A little bit of time has passed between when Jon Pousette-Dart as a teenager started forging a path in the musical landscape that started in the 60’s and laid a foundation with the original Pousette-Dart Band. Throughout the 70’s and into the 80’s, the band earned a loyal national following and produced five releases for Capitol that made a deep imprint in the world of album radio, when we all used to only listen to vinyl. When the band parted ways, Jon continued working and slowly began navigating back to where he started writing and recording in earnest with many of Nashville’s finest, and some twenty-odd years ago Jon crossed paths with Jim Chapdelaine one of the more formidable musicians he crossed paths with. Jon continued touring as their musical collaboration continued to brew into a satisfying vital musical landscape of its own.

Turn the clock ahead some years and a few questions might be asked.

What do two left-handed guitar players and the combined experience of rummaging around the music business since the early 1970’s equal?

It could equal a squalid path of broken dreams, less than half-paid mortgages, multiple marriages, many junked cars, and closets full of suitcases of clothes with the indelible afterscent of Marlboro’s and Budweiser’s ground into the sinews of years in dark dressing rooms contained in gin joints where the holy grail and graduation degree was five sets a night till closing time.

The scattered joy in producing moments of pure musical ecstasy, intermingled with financial panic and a steady diet of sleepless nights in Holiday Inn’s crisscrossing America’s heartland. Or, in this case, leading to two kindred souls who by fate and good fortune discovered they could weave a musical tapestry that spoke to all those that heard without a word being said between them.

And so it came to be.
