scott hirsch’s name is one you’ll find lurking in the liner notes of many admired recordings from the last two decades.
as a founding member of hiss golden messenger, he was integral to the band’s first five records, lending his sonic imprint on their productions, as well as shaping the sound of the live outfit, having toured heavily through the formative years of the band. much of this work is reflected on the recent merge records box set entitled devotion: songs about rivers and spirits and children. along the way he produced and played on records by kim krans’ family band, as well as recording a grammy nominated record by the legendary folksinger alice gerrard. having stepped off the demanding tour schedule of hiss in 2016, new pathways opened up for scott to fully engage in the craft of songwriting. on his second record, lost time behind the moon (2018), his production tones and songwriting talents are in full bloom. lost time behind the moon chronicles hirsch confronting ghosts of the past, acknowledging that darkness rides alongside the light, and avoiding the pitfalls of regret. the record was recorded and produced by hirsch with the help of mike coykendall (m ward), and features musical guests william tyler, mikael jorgensen (wilco), orpheo mccord (edward sharpe), jimmy calire (america) and jesse siebenberg (lukas nelson, supertramp).
