Firehouse Sessions – Lyal Strickland

Play

In the studio today for a new Firehouse Session is Lyal Strickland. Lyal Strickland is here from Buffalo, MO whilst touring his new album “Balanced on Barb Wire”. Besides making music as a solo artist, Strickland is juggling the pursuits of farmer and touring songwriter. Lyal Strickland unexpectedly (and single-handedly) has taken over his family’s struggling cattle farm. He also discovered that there is no shortage of inspiration in the delicate balance of legacy, pride, and struggle that defines his hometown of Buffalo. The songs on Balanced on Barbed Wire were written over the course of 2012 and reflect the endless, unpredictable rigors that come with pulling a living from the land. “2012 was a particularly bad year on the farm,” Strickland recalls. “In the spring we had massive downpours. The fields were swamps. Then, summer came around and we had a horrendous drought that was just unbelievably difficult. You can work your way from spring to late summer on this album – from ‘Every Time It Starts To Rain’ in March to ‘Gettin’ By’ in the dog days of August – straight-up drought.”

SONGS
1. “Every Time It Starts To Rain”
2. “O’Arkansas”
3. “In Ten Years”

Hosted by Angela Backstrom
Engineered by Jim Lang & Dan Withered
