From the venue:David Borné’s debut full-length album, Genesis, follows the Nashville-based singer-songwriter on a path of healing: death, rebirth, and beginning again. “There’s a mystery in the middle of the hole in your chest, a riddle you’re dying to solve. Pay attention, listen, the thing you’re missing has been with you all along,” he says in “Clarity,” a line that summarizes the soul-searching on Genesis well. Ethereal grit weaves throughout 13 songs produced by Jarrad K (Ruston Kelly, Lucie Silvas, Elohim) and engineered by Grammy winner Gena Johnson (John Prine, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton). Borné also worked with a cast of impressive supporting musicians: a duet with Bre Kennedy, another with Hadley Kennary, Chris Powell (Brandi Carlile, The Highwomen, Sturgill Simpson) on drums, Lydia Luce on strings, and Liana Alpino on harp.
