Solace in the Wild

By: Laurie Gallardo

You recently got a sneak peak of Solace in the Wild with “Where Have You Been All My Life?” on the KUTX Song of the Day. The new album by Erin Ivey comes out today, seven years after her last full-length release, and for Ivey, it’s meant more than just getting an album out.

Solace in the Wild explores the gravity of human connection, from which stems the solace needed to keep moving forward. Produced by guitarist extraordinaire Chuck Pinnell, Ivey describes the album as being tied together by natural elements surrounding us all – every ebb, flow, storm and clear sky, light and darkness. “There’s lots of navigating competing tides,” Ivey says. “How do you find solace in the wild? How do you find joy in the darkest hours? How do you stay grounded when you fear you might float away?” In turn, creating something like Solace in the Wild has kept Ivey connected to music, and ultimately, to the community.

Join Erin Ivey for a special livestream release celebration kicking off at 7 p.m. (Central) tonight, Friday Jan. 29, on Facebook Live.
