Jay Woodward - Letters We Told

Recorded in his home studio, Sierra Nevada Records, Jay Woodward approached the making of this concept album as an art project, and a letter, having a written correspondence like flow to it.
“The title, ‘Letters We Told,’ Jay says, came about as a throwback to the original and most elegant form of correspondence. During the time of writing this album, I began writing letters to friends and family that lived across America and the world. The goal was to keep in touch, but in a way that avoided the brash, shallow form technology encourages. What I found is better described with an analogy: Writing a letter is like wearing a suit or elegant dress, your appearance transforms your mindset. I enjoy that mindset which is what I tried to capture on this album. Hopefully others will absorb this feeling too.”
