Landfall is an anthology of instrumental songs inspired by the power, beauty and vastness of the American western and southwestern landscape. Painted with broad strokes of Americana, Folk and Jazz, Landfall is a tribute to the American frontier. Featuring plenty of Telecaster twang, pedal steel and captivating ensemble playing, Landfall is a sonic field trip to a land locked in time. Release date April 24th.
