Welcome My, God It's Full of Stars to the Spartan Family!
We are pleased to announce that we've teamed up with former Mae keyboardist/songwriter Rob Sweitzer to release the debut EP from his solo project My God, It’s Full of Stars this fall.
M29 is a project that has been both long in the works and completely reborn. Inspired by bands like Delta Spirit, Broken Social Scene, Elbow, and Doves, Sweitzer accumulated a mountain of demos that have been meticulously whittled down to a six song narrative that will serve as My God, It’s Full of Stars’ official introduction to the world.
Co-produced with Dave Elkins, M29 was recorded at 4115 Studios in Nashville, TN and mixed by Bryan Laurenson (Copeland). Listeners should expect a completely unique and new sonic experience -- a parallel path that will resonate with fans of Mae, but explores its own distinctive musical and thematic territory.
I'm enthused to be working with Spartan Records. I've seen this label grow steadily with the addition of a solid caliber of artists they believe in and it shows in Spartan's work ethic as it relates to the presentation of each artist's blood, sweat and tears to the world. I can now say I'm happy that my project My God, It's Full Of Stars is a part of the family. Thank you, John and Spartan for believing in me.
