A busted leg, a year plus recovering and two years driving a taxicab
came between Casey Meehan’s Violet and his new project Jitney. Kind
faces, cruel faces, always going somewhere, were the wildflower seeds
planted in the cracked leather backseat that grew into these songs. 6pm
to 6am, 6 nights becoming dawns each week, with chauffeur license
86-300 taped to the dash. All those charcoal mornings, and the
half-heard stories couched in the cacophony of city-din became this
collection of songs that jump and buzz like missed connections. I got a
couple rides from him and must admit the city is safer with him behind
the microphone than behind the wheel.Produced by Matt DeWine.Written, arranged, and performed by Casey Meehan (except where noted).Recorded and mixed by Matt DeWine at Pieholden Suite Sound, Urbana, Il (except where noted). www.myspace.com/pieholdenstudios
