William Lawrence – “Places of Our Own”

Slow Dancing on a High Wire is a just-released album from William Lawrence, a recording and touring member of The Felice Brothers. He also has played with Conor Oberst, Gun Outfit, Mail the Horse, and others. Lawrence’s experience and talents in folk-friendly niches are evident throughout the album, and particularly on its second track, “Places of Our Own.” A mellow rhythm section accompanies flickering keys and serene acoustics, with Lawrence’s serene vocals playing the part. Vocal-less moments are often adorned by graceful guitar accompaniments, like past the one-minute mark. It’s a beautifully written and produced track from Lawrence.

Other album highlights include “Send a Line,” which touts an enthralling smoky brass presence, and retrospective rocker “Gallows.” Stream the album below:
