A new album from the WyoFolk Project is out today, featuring over a dozen songwriters from across the Cowboy State.
“This is really kind of a dream project,” said Aaron Davis, the Hoback-based musician who orchestrated the project.
This time, he said he wanted to produce something that’s recorded instead.
“All of these songwriters are not trying to produce a product that’s going to be commercially viable,” Davis said. “They’re trying to produce something that they can be proud of, so that’s the bottom line for this project. It’s just coming from the heart.”
The 14 musicians featured on the album include Teton County locals Michael Batdorf, Isaac Hayden and Inland Isle.
Davis said he hopes this is just the start for the WyoFolk Project, listing at least 70 artists around the state he wants to include on future albums.
“Everybody brings a different vision,” he said. “I can honestly say everybody was so open and easy to work with, that it made the creative process so smooth and fun.”
The album is now streaming, with physical CDs available for purchase online.
