AREA RESIDENT

Area Resident’s sophomore album ‘Delano’ comes out Nov. 10 on limited-edition vinyl and through digital download worldwide on Record Centre Records. The album is named after American president Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Like the first Area Resident album, it was written and recorded by Doug Hempstead between his split shifts as a traffic reporter for CBC radio in Ottawa. The tracks are augmented, mixed and produced by Jordon Zadorozny of Blinker The Star at his Pembroke-based Skylark Park studio. Zadorozny also performs on almost all the songs.

Hempstead also brought in players from his live band, including guitarists John Higney (of the Flaps, Two Minute Miracles) and Paul Jensen. Acclaimed Ottawa artist Andrew King again provided the album’s cover art. Hempstead’s 13-year-old daughter provided the artwork for the liner notes and lyric sheet. Many of the songs are based on Eastern Ontario news stories, some of which Hempstead himself covered.
