Chicago indie songwriter Bob Nanna (Braid, Hey Mercedes, The City On Film, Lifted Bells) delivers Celebration States, a highly personal work chronicling a major life shift for the seasoned musician.
His first proper full length under his own name, States is a full, all-acoustic album recorded entirely on September 7, 2019, the day that would’ve been Nanna’s wedding anniversary. Simple and exposed, the recordings place his distinct, honeyed vocals on full display while lyrically navigating the personal process of coping with this certain type of loss.
Of the 10-song set, Nanna says it “documents the highs and lows of a one year-long story. It’s autobiographical and I purposely awaited a positive resolution before I decided to complete the project.”
Celebration States takes the listener on a confessional ride of emotional hardships and self-exploration followed by the eventual enlightenment of inner healing. Equally heartbreaking as uplifting, we invite you on this journey of re-discovery.
