Linda Draper follows-up string of albums produced by cult-icon Kramer with “Edgewise” on May 21st.

 American Songwriter debuts haunting “Hollow” inspired by a conversation Draper wasn’t meant to hear.

“When I wrote this song,” Linda Draper reflects on her new single “Hollow,” “I was thinking back to a conversation I overheard on a plane. The woman was talking about her step-son not being committed to any ‘real’ career, and that all he wanted to do was write. She said that he better ‘get it out of his system.’ As I heard this, I thought about another of my inspirations for this song, Nick Drake, and what a dull world this would be if he had been told this and listened.”

“Hollow” will appear on Draper’s upcoming new album Edgewise, scheduled for release on May 21st, 2013.  The album arrives on the heels of a half-dozen Draper albums released throughout the years, including four LPs recorded with legendary cult-icon and music producer Kramer (Ween, Low, Galaxie 500.)  A video for “Hollow,” shot on the beaches of Montauk on Long Island, New York, is currently in production.

“With this album, I feel myself returning to the roots that originally sparked my enthusiasm for music,” Draper explains, referring to her childhood growing up in a musical household with parents and siblings who are all musicians (father Frederick Draper is a classical guitar virtuoso who studied with Andres Segovia.)

Draper gives a peek into the making of Edgewise via a video interview here.  The album is scheduled for release on May 21st, 2013, and its first single “Hollow” is streaming now.  Linda Draper is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
