In 2007, with the backing of a major label and his dreams at the brink of realization, Army of Me’s Vince Scheuerman injured his vocal cords 3 weeks prior to the release of his debut record Citizen. It took 2 years for him to fully recover his voice and despair set in as the dream he had worked on for so long fell apart. But as his voice slowly returned, friends and supporters encouraged him to keep going.
Fast forward 5 years, 2012 opened doors to new friendships, a new hometown of Nashville, a producer Daniel James (Canon Blue), a string arranger Jeremy Larson, and a mixer Chad Howat (Paper Route). These were not only collaborators, but friends and a community— a small army, out of which Searching for You has emerged.
Daniel and Vince selected a specific pallet of sounds for what is now the new Army Of Me album – acoustic guitar, piano, strings, melotron, organ, and vocals that feature the lyric and story. The sound is beautiful, simple, and sensitive. After years of struggle, resistance, and pain, this record represents all of that; as well as the courage to keep moving forward.
