Product Notes

Jon Hyde Blair is the 2nd solo release by Jon Hyde. This EP is the follow up to the 2000 CD Yellow Light and is precedes the yet-coming Tipple CD. With Blair expect to hear more strong songs built on the foundation of melody and interesting arrangements. Blair, (like the companion Tipple) was produced by Jon and mixed by Tucker Martine (Decemberists, Jim White, Laura Veirs) In addition to his solo records Jon is a member of the Transmissionary Six, Varmint (with Wayne Horvitz and Robin Holcomb) and Mount Analog. Jon is a multi instrumentalist and can be heard contributing to records by the likes of Jim White, Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter, Transmissionary 6, Mount Analog, Laura Veirs, Memphis (Stars side project), Downpilot, Slang (Widepread Panic side project), Lori Carson, Karen Pernick, Carrie Akre, Once for Kicks, Heather Greene, Aiko Shimada, Larry Barret, Terry Lee Hale and many others. Hyde's song "Hope Chest" from the "Yellow Light" CD was featured on Hear Music Volume 7 and his rendition of Buck Owens' classic "Your Tender Loving Care" can be heard exclusively on Hear Music's Sweetheart vol. 1. His instrumental "Blair" was featured in Hear music's promotional materials for the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. The band: Jon Hyde - vocal, guitar, pedal steel, bass, drums Bruce Wirth - organ, electric piano, lap steel Caben Buswell - vocal, bass Eric Eagle - vocal, drums With distinguished guests: Tucker Martine - drums Steve Moore - electric piano James Palmer - vocal Dave Carter - flugelhorn Yellow Light is one of those albums that rewards patience. This low-key, rootsy collection from Seattle singer-songwriter Jon Hyde resonates with a subtle, alt-country soulfulness that recalls the likes of Paul Burch, the Jayhawks, Wilco and Neil Young... [when you reach the end of the CD] you might find yourself simply returning to the first track. It's that kind of album. --Steven Stolder, editor - Amazon.com ...Jon Hyde does plenty of good work with the dobro, pedal steel, accordion and banjo on his new album, Yellow Light. But his work with Tucker Martine on the production knobs is what sets this artful roots rock record apart from others in it's genre. --Richard Martin, Seattle Weekly Reminiscent of Dylan, Petty, and Uncle Tupelo, Hyde provides alt-country rock twang, laden with wordplay and lyrics of slow despair and cautious hope... It's a reverent reality rendered through magnificent music. --David Legry, HEARmusic Jon Hyde's near-perfect pop sensibility and melancholy lyrics are blended with a subtle sense of humor, giving the impression he is smiling behind the music. Folk-rock and alt-country are just a few of the classifications for Hyde's music, but most important is the strong attention to melody, lyrics and arrangement. --Bumbershoot festival preview.
