Nashville-based artist, songwriter, and producer Maya de Vitry is enjoying some hard-won creative flourishing. "Iʼm not just making different music now. It feels like I'm breathing in a different atmosphere," she says, reflecting on her evolution from acclaimed roots-Americana band The Stray Birds to her current solo journey. Produced by Maya de Vitry and mixed by Grammy-award winning engineer Justin Francis (Madison Cunningham), The Only Moment (out July 12, 2024) is de Vitryʼs 4th full-length record and is an unabashed blend of indie folk, indie rock, and indie pop, with elements of Americana and alt-country. Originally from Lancaster, PA, de Vitryʼs 2019 debut,Adaptations, earned accolades from Rolling Stone Country, NPR Music, and No Depression and she has since attracted an organicand devoted following on the strength of her recordings and her live performances. She sings with a magnetic and hard-won sense of purpose that has landed her support tours in North America and Europe for artists like The Wood Brothers, Aoife OʼDonovan, John Craigie, and Mighty Poplar. Her songwriting appears on albums by Molly Tuttle, Lindsay Lou, Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, and Steve Poltz, and her versatility as a multi-instrumentalist and harmony singer has enriched numerous Nashville projects. Despite her seemingly vigorous creative pace, the recording process forThe Only Moment was unhurried. “Itʼs like I was making a long-exposure photograph, but with music,” she explains, having left the metaphorical shutter open for nearly three years to allow the songs themselves the opportunity to breathe. “I completely shelved this record for months at a time, on several occasions,” she recalls. “Each time I came back to it, I heard new possibilities. In todayʼs music industry, thereʼs pressure to share our process or turn it into ʻcontentʼ. But I treasured keeping this record to myself and slow-cooking these songs on the back burner.” The resulting album is a refreshing testament to the generative simmering that underpins periods of reinvention and growth.
Jordie Lane marks this new chapter with a sound that consistently defies genres, with his latest wandering somewhere close to the outskirts of Americana and 60’s inspired Folk while “creating a pathbreaking and inspiring sound” all of its own. With Irreverent wit and satirical commentary, the songs on Tropical Depression tackle (among other things) Lane’s own growing obsession with extreme weather (ignited by a close call with an EF-3 Tornado) and its eventual collision with his own mental health battles.
