NEWS SOURCE: Justin McRoberts, a report
May 12, 2010

Ten years ago, acoustic/folk artist Justin McRoberts released his sophomore album Father through Five Minute Walk Records. Just this week, the singer songwriter has released a four-song EP via Noisetrade that revisits selections from the album, adding new touches, and even incorporating a guest appearance by former label mate Reese Roper (Five Iron Frenzy, Roper). Check out McRoberts' reflection on this release below.

"May has traditionally been an emotional month for me. This week, in fact, marks 12 years since I lost my father to depression and suicide. Every May since has a surreal quality to it; as if the month should have been retired for all its wear and tear. But this May has a different shade to it than the past 11, as my first child, a son, is due May 31.

Up to now, what I have known of fatherhood I have only known as a son; a son who lost his father at that. May 2010 represents the end of that era and the beginning one in which I have the privilege of being a father.

Therefore, I have worked up a special collection of songs I am releasing through Noisetrade. I have re-arranged four songs from the album “Father”, which I wrote about my dad and the experience of losing him. Recorded mostly at my home, the collection is entitled “Father Revisited” and it will be available as a way to celebrate this new era and the passing of the last. Thanks for your support over the years, I hope you enjoy this special project. -justin

Now available at Noisetrade, “Father Revisited” includes new arrangements of...
Follow You
After My All
At The Cross (recorded live)
Waiting On Your Love (featuring Reese Roper from Five Iron Frenzy)
