Helene Cronin — “Landmarks”
Americana Highways is hosting this premiere of Helene Cronin’s song “Landmarks,” the title track from her forthcoming album due to be available on February 3rd. The song will be available on November 18. Landmarks was produced by Matt King; mixed and engineered by Mitch Dane at Sputnik Sound in Nashville; with additional recording at Big Bicycle Studio in Nashville. Mastering was done by Kim Rosen at Knack Mastering in Ringwood, NJ.
“Landmarks” is Helene Cronin on vocals and background vocals; Matt King on background vocals, guitar, keys, and effects; Bobby Terry on acoustic guitars, banjo, steel guitar, and mandolin; Kenny Vaughan on electric guitars and 12-string electric guitar; Byron House on electric and upright bass; Jerry Roe and Paul Eckberg on drums. Helene Cronin is an extraordinary songwriter, and this one does not disappoint. Fishing with her father as a girl, memories and pretty harmonies too. What more could you ask for?
Growing up near the ocean, my favorite times were when I got to go out on the family boat with my dad. He would let me steer, while he pointed out buoys, beaches and structures on shore to guide and orient us. It took me until adulthood to examine this memory and realize he was making sure I could always find my way home. I brought this title and idea to my (at the time)16-year old co-writer Ava Paige. As the daughter of a dad who took her fishing too, she could relate. I had no idea the song would become as truth-laden as it is and that it would earn its place as title track on this record, pulling together threads that run through the whole project. Matt King’s featured harmony on the song perfectly captures a hint of that fatherly voice. — Helene Cronin
