Tift Merritt’s TRAVELING ALONE now available for pre-order.


Dear Folks,

Just a note from the front porch to say how excited I am for Traveling Alone to be released this fall.  I’ve had a wonderful summer on tour with Mary Chapin Carpenter who has been so kind to me – but I’m looking forward to being back with the full band and pulling these songs out of our suitcase!   Hope this finds you well, hope we see you soon on the road.

Warmest, Tift

Yep Roc is excited to offer Tift Merritt’s Traveling Alone for pre-order.  The album was recorded in Brooklyn with Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, Spoon) and features a guest appearance by Andrew Bird as well as performances by Marc RibotRob Burger (Lucinda Williams, Iron & Wine, Rufus Wainwright), John Convertino (Calexico), Eric Heywood (The Jayhawks, Son Volt, Alejandro Escovedo) and Merritt’s longtime collaborator Jay Brown. “I really wanted to make a record that was real and raw,” notes Merritt. “I wanted to put together my dream cast and see if I could hold my own with them. To me, Traveling Alone is about the roads on the inside–those places that are hard to see and not easy to send postcards from.
