Now Delmhorst readies "Songs For A Hurricane," produced with Morphine's Billy Conway at his Hi-n-Dry Studio in Cambridge. This time around, the team chose to trim back the range of instruments and let the songs stand up for themselves without losing the rich sonic textures of "Five Stories," also recorded with Conway. This was achieved in part by using different guitarists, each chosen specifically as a personality match to a particular song. "Hurricane's" musical crew includes Conway on drums, Andrew Mazzone on bass guitars, Julie Wolf on keyboards, and, on various tracks, Mark Erelli, Jabe Beyer, Kevin Barry, and Steve Mayone playing guitar.

Early on in the recording, Delmhorst developed a vision for the album's momentum. As the title would suggest, the record relates to a turbulent time, and the sequence of songs traces a hurricane's arc; the suspended motion that precedes it, the corporeal build of energy, the sudden calm of the eye, the tension and release as elements combine, the pensive conclusion as it settles, the destruction and redemption left in its wake. Delmhorst certainly knows a thing or two about the transformative journey, and "Songs for a Hurricane" tells a universal tale of going into the teeth of a storm and coming out the other side whole, wiser for wear, and forever changed.

"...˜Songs for a Hurricane' is an exceptional disc, and one that offers fans of singer/songwriters something a little different from the norm “ comparisons with artists such as Patty Griffin and Dar Williams are valid, but there's much more of an instrumental edge to many of the songs, combining this with consistently strong lyrics and melodies makes for an album of real quality and depth.
