Alternative indie singer-songwriter JW Sargent has announced his debut EP, In Retrograde, will be out 11/18. The EP is his first venture as a solo artist after time spent in several notable bands in the music scene. In Retrograde features four songs and appearances by prominent musicians such as Justin Nace (PVRIS) and Evan Chapman (Lydia). The EP was mastered and co-recorded by Paul Leavitt (All Time Low, The Dangerous Summer) and mixed by Justin Chapman (Dr. Dog). Celebrating the announcement, the artist has released the debut track “Run”, as heard below.
“In Retrograde is the illusion of moving backward when, in reality, you are making progress. That concept was something that I felt and dealt with a lot, not only in the context of making this record, but also in my life in general. Not only are the songs inspired by that feeling, but the album itself is a product of it. Making this record has been an incredible journey for me as an artist and has pushed to try new things in the name of growth and self reliance. It feels great to finally share these years of work with the world and hopefully these ideas resonate with others as they have with me.” – JW Sargent
