Americana Highways brings you this premiere of “The Meaning” from the upcoming album Waiting on You by JP Ruggieri, due to be released in January 2019. The Nashville-based artist recorded this one at Big Orange Sheep in Brooklyn, where it was produced by Chris Jacobie and engineered by Chris Benham.
“The Meaning” is JP Ruggieri on guitars and vocals, Michael Bellar on keys, with Evan Pazner on drums, Jordan Scannella on bass with Karlie Bruce on vocals. The song is rhythmically groovy with percussion sounds creating the feeling that you’re right in their midst, as Ruggieri tells us “I’m a book of beginnings that always sits on a shelf,” and his vocals tap into a throwback Southern rock ’70s vocal harmonious feel. The production quality is clear as a bell after a new fallen winter snow, though, which is a treat with its carefully layered sounds.
