When singer/songwriter John Statz isn’t at home in Denver, Colorado, he’s out traveling the world, playing shows and writing and recording in places like Budapest, Slovenia, Quebec, and Anchorage.
John Statz recorded his new album with an all-star band in the middle of a Vermont ice storm. “We had to keep the stove burning the whole day, and then the electricity went out for ten minutes,” concedes Statz. “Luckily, we were just rehearsing.” John Statz released Tulsa on March 10, 2015.
After years of DIY touring everywhere from Eastern Europe to Mexico, the Wisconsinite who now resides in Colorado fell in with fellow Midwesterner Jeffrey Foucault, a critically acclaimed songwriter and veteran of the Americana circuit. A fan of Statz’s last album (2012’s Old Fashioned, produced by Bo Ramsey),Foucault offered to produce his next record while the two were on tour together in Colorado.
