ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Thinking Place, the new record from Seattle, WA’s Alec Shaw, is a dynamic, engaging journey into soulful indie pop. Filled with warm brass and playful vocal techniques, the record moves through different melodic spheres while evoking the spirit of traditional Appalachian folk songs. Riding throughout the dramatic opening swells, flowing guitar and piano, and driving synth is Shaw’s dynamic, enchanting voice; at turns ethereal and soaring.

Growing up in a musical home, Shaw began writing at a very young age. In the 4th grade, he started playing both guitar and piano, using them to craft hundreds of short songs. From there he honed his skills playing in church and in bands with friends, all while dreaming of someday performing big grand shows. Flash forward to 2016, and the first gig Shaw and his band (cobbled together through craigslist) have is spot on the bill for a Seattle Children’s Hospital benefit show at the iconic Neumos in Seattle, WA.

2016 also saw the release of Shaw’s first record Car Town, which he completed while briefly attending the Berklee School of Music. He followed up with his second record Uh Oh and The Oh Wells in 2017. Work on Thinking Places began in 2018 after a chance meeting with producer/engineer Andy Park (Noah Gunderson, Ciara, Pedro the Lion, Mac Miller) at a Noah Gunderson show. Their work writing together began in August 2018. The record was set to tape in January 2019.

Thinking Place was recorded in Seattle at Studio Litho and at Hall of Justice, as well as Shaw’s makeshift studio in his parent’s spare bedroom. In addition to guitar, vocals, and percussion from Shaw and keys from Park, also featured on the record are JP Talley on drums and percussion, Sean Lane (David Bazan) on drums, Zan Fiskum on keys and vocals, Abby Gundersen on strings, bassist Craig Curran, and brass players Henry Sparks (Trombone), Skyler Floe (trumpet), and Beserat Tafesse (Trombone).

Resonating throughout Thinking Place is the warmth and peace that comes from discovery of the inner self, and acceptance after a loss. Whether romantic as in “The One That Got Away”, personal as in “Alone in My Bed” or just a loss of clarity whilst swimming the fog of daily existence, the record is imbued with the primal essence of growth - and hope that comes with it. “The biggest thing I want people to get from this record,” Shaw says, “is a sense of hope from the beauty in the music itself.”
