Joey Kneiser - Moonlight For The Graveyard Heart

This Is American Music release - 12/11/12

Dark lonely roads, graffiti-ed brick churches, and full-mooned night skies make up the landscape of Joey Kneiser’s new EP, Moonlight for the Graveyard Heart. As member and songwriter for the band Glossary, Joey has used his love and knowledge of writing and recording in his newest release. While Glossary’s latest album focused on being upbeat in a pessimistic world, Joey decided to try something new in Moonlight for the Graveyard Heart.

“I wanted something that felt dark without being macabre,” Joey says about his motives for recording Moonlight for the Graveyard Heart. “There needed to be a spark of hope even in the desperate of places.”

Like his 2010 release THE ALL-NIGHT BEDROOM REVIVAL, Joey was the only writer, performer, singer, and recording engineer on each track of MOONLIGHT FOR THE GRAVEYARD HEART. Every instrument played, every vocal harmonized, and every lyric written was done solely by Kneiser at his home in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The result of his solitary work is a release that is finely detailed while expressing a lot of heart, full of songs dedicated to both the despondent and the hopeful, songs that herald our sins and our goodness, a record for everyone who has driven into dusky nights with a great hopeful heart.
