Preston Lovinggood –
Shadow Songs

Release Date: February 24th, 2014

In early 2013 Preston Lovinggood released his debut solo work, Sun Songs. Produced by Taylor Hollingsworth (Dead Fingers, Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band) this is a beautifully lo-fi presentation of Lovinggood’s songs. Unknown to most was the parallel musical plain five of those tracks had already been living in.

Enter Shadow Songs.


Over the course of a year Preston recorded in studio with producer/engineer Darrell Thorp (Beck, Radiohead). They would work together in both Preston’s hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, as well as, Los Angeles. The latter yielded him a creative freedom with his music that couldn’t be found in the shackles of day to day life at home. Along with Thorp and an entourage of new musicians, Preston’s songs were re-imagined and cast in a new light.

If Sun Songs can be likened to an up-close-and-personal documentary then Shadow Songs is its’ equally impressive wide-screen sibling.

Listeners will now be able to experience this new body of work for themselves.

Preston Lovinggood –
Sun Songs

Release Date: February 19th, 2013

A simple guitar arpeggio and a distant, yet eager vocal kicks off Sun Songs, the much-anticipated solo effort of former Wild Sweet Orange front man Preston Lovinggood.  A product four years in the making and under heavy mentoring by Communicating Vessels founder Jeffrey Cain, Lovinggood finds himself exploring uncharted sonic territory with songs of desolation, longing, paranoia, and hope.


The entire record is beautifully lo-fi with bits of punk rock (“Natural”), acoustic ska riffs , and new wave (“Somewhere Along The Way”), but distinctly 21st century. 


Taylor Hollingsworth, known for his work in Dead Fingers and Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band, helmed the production and recording. Hollingsworth’s contribution to Sun Songs is undeniable with bluesy electric riffs, slide guitar, well-placed feedback, and creaky, sporadic drums.  “Give It Your Name,” a co-write between Lovinggood and Hollingsworth, brings back Lovinggood’s familiar and undeniable yell. Not the predicable sequel to Lovinggood’s past work, Sun Songs is a perfect left turn.
