“A wellspring of raw passion and emotion, Songs from After So Many Days is a tapestry of wondrous folk and folk rock that puts the human spirit on full display. It’s a record of fortitude and strength; of love and understanding; of new people and places, and so much more.” – Atwood Magazine
LA singer/songwriter duo Jim and Sam have released their new album, Songs from After So Many Days (Nettwerk) in advance of the digital release of their award-winning feature film documentary After So Many Days, out October 20th via Gravitas Ventures. Listen to the album HERE.
From motels, to barns, to cathedrals, to bedrooms, Songs from After So Many Days is a musical passport recorded during and after the married duo’s 365-everyday tour, which saw Jim and Sam perform one show every day for a year. The band says of the album, “With the heartbeat of the tour and film being live performances, we included live stories, a live track and a few one-take recordings to capture the improvisational, in-the-moment nature of life on the road.” To celebrate the album’s release, the band shares a new music video for title track “After So Many Days” composed of clips from the film.

After a decade of making music together, Jim and Sam, a recently married singer/songwriter duo from Los Angeles, were not the conventionally successful band they hoped they’d be. Feeling stuck and anxious about their future, the duo made a spontaneous decision to go “all in,” making a pact to play one show every day for a year. With suitcases, a guitar and whatever camera they could get their hands on (to film every single day), the troubadours ventured out for a 365-day tour down unexplored roads and onto unexpected stages, bringing their music to new audiences throughout 14 different countries. After So Many Days, is an intimate front row seat to the highs and lows of what it’s like for two people to pursue a dream, together.
