Producer/songwriter Greg Laswell returns with his third full-length release for Vanguard records, Take a Bow, which both closes and opens another chapter in the California native’s journey about love, loss and rebirth. Following his critically acclaimed fall 2009 Covers EP (one of Filter magazine’s “10 best of the year”), Take a Bow features 12 original compositions including a new version of the song “Off I Go,” which was featured in the 2009 season finale of Grey’s Anatomy (one of over six placements he’s had on this show alone).
Laswell retreated to a rustic cabin near Flagstaff, AZ – his comforts were one convenience store and his dog for company – to write and record the songs that would become Take a Bow. Like fellow Californian Mark Oliver Everett (Eels), Laswell made his “band” the studio and the studio his laboratory, where he used all manner of instruments, found and treasured, and gear, simple and sophisticated, to make his most lushly textured, sonically gorgeous album to date.
