Leavitt’s embedded in several bands and projects around Boston, providing substance for everyone from glam troubadours to Americana veterans, but he’s also got his emotive solo gig, and the ghostly folk of “Where Did Your Love Go,” posted below, is the first offering from upcoming autumn record You, Me, And The Silence. Co-produced by Leavitt and his OldJack comrade Dan Nicklin, the track features Leavitt on vocals and most of the instruments, with Phil Aiken (Phil Aiken Army) on piano and Jason Meeker (OldJack) on drums.
The song is officially released tomorrow night at Cafe 939, and the Nate Leavitt Band features some familiar faces around town: Nicklin on guitar, omnichord and vocals; Magen Tracy (Parlour Bells) on piano and vocals; John Maloney (The Rotary Prophets) on bass; Ned Gallacher (Ad Frank and the Fast Easy Women) on drums; Brian Carroll on mandolin; and Noel Coakley on pedal steel.
You, Me, And The Silence is the 10-song follow-up to Leavitt’s previous solo release, 2011 EP Inference. You can peruse that via the Bandcamp link below (or play “Where Did Your Love Go” on that platform, if you’re a Bandcamp kinda guy/gal).
