Quiet Songs for Loud Times

NewSong Recordings partners with New York singer-songwriter Alan Semerdjian to release his forthcoming album ‘Quiet Songs for Loud Times’

by NewSong Music on May 31st, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 31, 2013. Asheville’s NewSong Recordings label is excited to announce the forthcoming release of Alan Semerdjian’s third solo record, Quiet Songs for Loud Times (NSR 1302). The album’s June 28 release will coincide with Semerdjian’s New York CD release show that evening at Rockwood Music Hall in the Lower East Side. 

quiet_coverAlan Semerdjian’s work seems to find its way to those who want a little more out of the music they let into their lives. Perhaps its his insistence on doing things his own way, and staying true to his vision of the world, one informed by years of creating art, writing essays and poems, and teaching high school English in and around New York City. 

After 20 years of making and releasing music on his own in a myriad of bands and genres, Semerdjian has partnered with Asheville, North Carolina’s NewSong Recordings for his latest release, Quiet Songs for Loud Times (Summer 2013). The collection of deeply personal songs is his response to the changing world around him and, on a broader level, the complexities that challenge our society as a whole. “In many ways, this is a record about growing up,” says Semerdjian, “and realizing that what we imagined adulthood would look like isn’t necessarily what it ends up being…and that that’s not necessarily a bad thing.”  On the new partnership with NewSong Recordings, Semerdjian adds, “I’m excited to work with such a reputable label whose priority is integrity and getting quality music out to new audiences.”

Quiet Songs for Loud Times is mixed by Mike Bloom (The Elected, Rilo Kiley, Julian Casablancas), who has worked with Semerdjian on his previous two releases (2005‘s When There Was Something Wrong With You and 2009’s The Big Beauty), and features appearances by Aram Bajakian (Lou Reed, Diana Krall) on electric guitar, Chris Kuffner (Ingrid Michaelson) on bass, Dave Diamond (Assembly of Dust) on drums and percussion and Matt Iselin on piano and organ.  The team succeeds at constructing a mature and artful intimacy that is consistent with Semerdjian’s distinct aesthetic while striking notes familiar in modern folk music, indie and art rock, and Americana traditions. The result is a stunningly beautiful album in both sound and sentiment, finding Alan Semerdjian at the top of his craft.
