Find a connection in these songs with something they’re either currently experiencing or have experienced in the past
Though the EP was written some years ago, the recording process, in part because of COVID, took almost 2 years. Beginning in November 2019, Lyons flew in his college buddy Steven Katona to create the percussion for the record.
Lyons was adamant about having each musician on the album bring their own style and personal touch instead of hiring out session artists for the job. This decision showcases a unique mix of textures throughout the 5 songs, especially paired with Lyons’ non-traditional genre-elusive style.
After running into him multiple times in downtown Nashville, Lyons was very fortunate to work with Grammy Award-Winning bassist Dave Roe on Trust In A Stranger, recording the EP in Roe’s Seven Deadly Sins Studio in Goodlettsville, TN. Roe also performed all the bass parts on the record.
Sharing personal stories dealing with strong emotion can be difficult for artists like Hunter, but he hopes that listeners “can find a connection in these songs with something they’re either currently experiencing or have experienced in the past, and maybe find or reaffirm the thought that many of us go through the same struggles and ups and downs like everyone else at some point in life.”
