With the Feb. 1, 2019, release of Reed Foehl’s fifth solo album, Lucky Enough, fans will get a dose of powerful medicine, a cathartic collection of 10 songs that Foehl recorded with help from a mighty musical force, The Band of Heathens, produced by Ed Jurdi and Gordy Quist at their Finishing School studio in Austin, TX. It’s an album that will undoubtedly solidify his standing as one of the most compelling and vital Americana artists around.
On Lucky Enough, Foehl touches on a range of Americana styles, all with emotionally charged lyrics and can’t-get- out-of-your-head choruses, from somber folk elegies (“Stealing Starlight” and “American Miles”) and gospel-tinged tunes (“Carousel Horses”) to barroom country singalongs (“Long Time to Make Old Friends”) and jaunty calypso- flavored, country-infused pop (“Wish I Knew”). These are deeply personal songs for Foehl, and while they were written during some dark days, there’s a sense of optimism and gratitude, an overriding feeling that the hope outshines the heartbreak. In 2017 Foehl was making a big move, heading to Nashville to continue his craft as an artist and a songwriter. That made sense after co-writing the leadoff song (“Fly”) with up-and-coming country singer/songwriter Brent Cobb on Lee Ann Womack’s 2014 Grammy-nominated album, The Way I’m Livin’.
On the way, he got a call from his mother, Linda. She had lymphoma, and she needed him. He didn’t hesitate, ditching his fully loaded car in Nashville and flying straight home to Massachusetts. In that year and a half taking care of his mom, he wrote most of the songs you will hear on Lucky Enough.
The Band of Heathens
