It feels like ages since Jonathan Vassar had some new music. After having a baby, his responsibilities obviously kept him elsewhere.
However, Mr. Vassar will be releasing a new album entitled “Mercy for the Undeserving.” Jonathan Vassar’s new eight song solo record returns to the stark narrative songwriting he left in 2003. Along with it is an unreleased album from 2003 with eight additional of songs in the same vein.
Jonathan is one of the best songwriters I’ve ever gotten the chance to know and his simple, yet elegant songs a treasure that Richmond is lucky to have.
Jonathan Vassar will be releasing “Mercy for the Undeserving” on Oct. 4 with an album release show at the Michaux House (the original location of the Listening Room).
Listen to some tracks from the new album below. I can’t wait to hear the rest of it.
