ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Dylan Sneed's 'The Beautiful Noise' is one of the most beautiful songs I've heard this year...a new, more exciting direction that sees the acoustic-driven artist going electric, with throbbing drums and hazy guitars that split the difference between indie rock and alt-country." Patrick Wall, Columbia Free Times

I think I wrote this song back in 2005 or so. It was definitely while I was living in Dallas and working my old corporate job. I've always had a fondness for the tune, but it honestly kinda scared me, too. I feel like "Noise" draws a clear line of demarcation in my songwriting. Writing it helped me cross into a more honest place, where I was able to say some things I was afraid to say. By breaking through some of that fear I feel I was able to enter into more truth in my songwriting, or at least more honesty.

I finally recorded "Noise" during the sessions of my last album, Texodus. We felt, however, that it didn't really fit on that album. Texodus was full of acoustic guitars, mellow piano, and songs about home. "The Beautiful Noise" is more of a brooding, raw, angry indie rock prayer. Not much like the other songs at all. Still, we knew I'd use it someday, and I'm so glad that we chose to record it while we had access to the Hunt House, the old cabin-turned-makeshift-studio in the Low Country of South Carolina.

Judd Bolger produced "Noise" and played keys and bass and sang harmony vocals. Jeff Rogers played drums. I played the guitars.

I hope you enjoy "The Beautiful Noise." Thanks for listening.
