Tasmanian singer-songwriter Zac Henderson today releases his long awaited studio record, Lay The Stones.
Following on from the release of lead track ‘Drawing Blood’ this month, the full Zac Henderson experience is realised across 10 heartfelt and meticulously created songs.
Written across a number of years, the album’s material details the scope of development and introspective moments in Henderson’s life.
Having become a busy touring artist since the release of his debut EP Procrastination almost four years ago, life experiences changed for the artist as his music took him around the country and overseas. Lay The Stones is a result of this beautiful chaos being channelled into new stories on record.
From Lay The Stones, fans will recognise not just ‘Drawing Blood’, but also previously released tracks ‘Stonewash’ and ‘I Haven’t Seen You In A Week’ – songs that marked exciting points of release for Henderson throughout 2020.
Working on the album away from Tasmania, instead creating in Gippsland with his band and mixer/engineer Greg J Walker, the experience of making Lay The Stones was a fulfilling experience for everyone involved.
Honesty in songwriting and the showcase of vulnerability on record are shining highlights of Lay The Stones as a listening experience. Across tracks like ‘Easy To Please’, ‘Trick Pony’ and ‘Tin Shed’, some of the album’s strongest points show themselves, as Henderson’s unique voice twists and weaves around some beautiful narrative bends.
