"To me, euphoria lives inside an electric guitar. That's a place I find freedom, passion, exhilaration: in the spaces between the notes, in the distance between the frets."
— Chris Stamey
Acclaimed North Carolina singer-songwriter, musician, and producer Chris Stamey, who is "a pivotal figure in the history of American alternative rock" (PopMatters), and someone who "remains ever the pop craftsman" (All Music) will release his first studio album in two years, Euphoria, June 2, 2015 on Yep Roc Records.
Recorded at Mitch Easter's Fidelitorium and his own Modern Recording with the help of Jeff Crawford, the 10-song set finds Stamey returning to his electric roots with an emotionally resonant set of rocking, melodically infectious, sonically bracing new tunes, with expansive arrangements incorporating horns alongside unexpected sonic textures.
