“As I was sitting in Whispertone Studios working on demos for my new upcoming full-length record, Platte City Sun, for Autumn + Colour, I was wrapping up the first 3 demos and it was like one of those animated light bulb ideas went off in my head. I picked up the phone and called my A&R guy, Travis J. Groo (Music+Marketing) and asked him, “What if we did a free 3 song sampler to pass out while I’m working on the record and about to leave for tour – to have something to pacify during the wait?” Travis began expressing that he really liked the idea and that he’d like to run it by Todd Richard Stevens (Business+Operations) to see if we can get the idea off the ground. So here we are. Three songs into pre-production and the engine turned. The first demo I recorded, “Porcelain Rain,” was then followed by “Arkadelphia” and “January.” Immediately I felt connected to where the direction of this record was going. I am intrigued to hear and see what happened during this process. I sat on the couch with a notebook full of lyrics on the coffee table with my resonator guitar at my side, coffee was brewing, and the miscellaneous inspiration devices (dictionaries, tobacco, Coca-Cola, etc.) were all at arm’s reach as I began setting my journey into the making of Platte City Sun. This expedition called for the arrangements of music and lyrics, late nights that crawl into the morning hours of recording, the in-between time spent on the road touring; ultimately welcoming the room to shape, mold, and grow as an artist and songwriter. A toast; to Platte City Sun.” ~Jordan-Morgan Lansdowne
