Album Notes
A freshly brokenhearted, nineteen-year old Merri Palmer began writing this record in Austin, Texas at the end of an extremely sparse year for inspiration and songwriting. She lived in a fancy, bare "White Coffin of an Apartment" and busied herself with patching up her borrowed air mattress, slowly going mad, binge drinking, excessive dreaming and writing song after song in isolation.
Six months later, the songs were almost completed and Merri was mostly sane. She experimented with many versions of the songs around Austin for three and a half years, dreaming of compiling these songs into a record as she continued to relentlessly write new material.
Professional hobo/fellow musician D.B. Rouse offered to record, play on and produce the album in November 2010; Merri Palmer was delighted to have some motivation to convert a four-year-old idea into a reality.
After four months of hard work (and four years of avoiding it), they are proud to present to you: Drinking and Dreaming.
