    More on the book from the photographer Kevin Clark:
    In late 2017, I did a fun shoot w/ the full band version of Jphono1. A month or so later, John Harrison (the mastermind behind all things Jphono) approached me about working together on a new project.

    He mentioned that he’d been working on songs for a solo album w/ a psych-folk feel, and that the album would be called “Loblolly Boogie”… named for the hypnotically calming dance these tall trees seems to do as they gently sway in a breeze. John explained that throughout his life, from the backyard of his childhood home to his current house, these trees were always present & often served as an inspiration for his creative mind.

    His vision was to include a photo book w/ images of these majestic pines to accompany the album, and so he asked if I’d be interested in the project. The only guideline was that the images needed to be tied in w/ loblolly pines somehow, but I was given complete freedom to determine exactly what that meant & how the images were created. At that time, the music had not been recorded, so I wouldn’t have that to use as a reference point in terms of mood, style, etc. other than knowing the general musical direction John mentioned for the album.

    So over the next ten months or so, I amassed a collection of images in varying styles, seasons, locations, etc. The project presented me with both an interesting challenge & a ton of flexibility. It also gave me an appreciation of these trees that I never would’ve had otherwise, and served as a reminded to myself to be observant/present in every moment… and to get out of the office & into the world more often.

    Once John was finished recording & shared the music w/ me, I was kinda floored by how perfectly his songs captured the exact mood/feeling I had a number of times while closely witnessing these trees over the past year. I was equally blown away by just how well the images accompanied the music. Despite working on our respective parts of this project for about a year w/ essentially no collaboration throughout the process, I find a great deal of symmetry in the end result. Major props to John for having the vision to see that from the start, and for asking me to be a part of this with him.

    Can’t wait for you all to hear/see the end result!

about

Some of my earliest memories have also been constant in my life. One of these is the loblolly pine tree. From the beginning as I wandered among them in my childhood home. They are with me in my travels to far away places. Transporting me as I stare out of the kitchen window of my current home. They have always been there with me….and they will be there after I’m gone. They stop time in stillness, they dance in the flow and they provide a familiarity with myself I’ve only just begun to notice. - Jphono1

I step through the door
Into the garden to see

about

jphono1 Carrboro, North Carolina

Jphono1 and friends explore new elements in sounds and arrangements with his fuzz-frayed folk-pop. Fragments of electronics, acoustic guitars, and keys join what at first resemble straight-forward compositions, only to break apart into unassuming lo-fi with casual psychedelia, finding a comfortable station at the intersection of Meat Puppets whimsy and Steve Gunn introspection. ... more

Track Name: Where Clouds Are Born
High above where clouds are born steal away into the morn everything that’s here is awake
Track Name: I've Let All My Hair Grow
Open up the black framed off white grainy film
I’ve let all my hair grow hiding out within
All this without exceptional reason

I’ve read the books and heard the stories of love lost MIA
Translation in the ether in your fears and the weird
All This without exceptional reason

I hope you were somebody that you used to know
Orange the gold and blue and green you’ll miss me when they go
All this without exceptional reason

I’ve let all my hair grow
Track Name: About Stillness
Do you know about stillness in your day
Make it stop
Send it on its way
Feels so good
Gone too fast
Here comes sunshine again
Track Name: The Land Beyond
Lord knows I’d like to meet you
Really high up to greet you
Heaven’s here I guess it’s doing fine

Coming down is less appealing
All those machines are healing
I feel the force fields all the time

There’s a lot inside the static
What is left is systematic
I’ve known the land beyond

I’m inside a perfect day
Don't look for me I’m far away
I’ve known the land beyond
Track Name: Type Of Cure
You’re never awake fully formed until the dawn comes bringing light you can steal
Replace the urge to know spinning wheels let it become some truth we all can feel
There is a difference I’m cast in chrome to kill dim the lights and watch the dealer deal

Do you hate it here
Well that's a type of cure
Don't leave now
You’re a welcome guest
Company on time

You are here
You are gone
You are everywhere
