Hear Jesse Payne’s New Track “Ravens”

Jesse Payne’s latest album, Heirloom, is set to release August 14.

Payne is no stranger to his namesake. In the summer of 2012, Payne and his team of “audio-painters” began recording the album, but during the next two years, according to Payne’s site, “life waged a brutal war against Jesse and the album.” In the spring of this year, they decided to begin a crowdfunding campaign. Over the course of two months, the team raised over $11,000 from fans, friends, and family, making Heirloom possible. “This is just the beginning of our story,” Payne says. “The future remains unwritten.”

Payne’s weathered Appalachian post-folk-rock is unlike anything else you’ll hear this year. Listen to “Ravens” off of Heirloom here:
