In 2019, Portland, Oregon-based songwriter and special education teacher Jeffrey Silverstein released his solo debut after more than a decade recording in collaborative projects (Baltimore band Secret Mountains and Brooklyn duo Nassau). The EP introduced a meditative psych-folk sound inspired by the Pacific Northwest, an atmosphere he expands on here with You Become The Mountain. Joined by pedal-steelist Barry Walker Jr., bassist Alex Chapman, and producer Ryan Oxford, Silverstein sways between evocative instrumentals and observant lyric-based compositions. "Cosmic country with a gentle sweetness, reminiscent of Beachwood Sparks and Silver Jews at their twangiest," says NPR. It's out on Arrowhawk Records.Coverage on music sites Official website
