FLOCK OF DIMES
– JENN WASNER (WYE OAK) SIGNS TO PARTISAN
– REVEALS SIGNATURE REVEREND GUITAR
– PUBLISHES ESSAY ON GUITARS VIA MEDIUM
Partisan Records is excited to announce the signing of Flock Of Dimes, aka Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak, Dungeonesse), to release her debut LP this year. Baltimore-born, Durham-based Wasner is known for her gorgeous vocals, mesmerizing guitar skills and ability to seamlessly inhabit numerous aesthetic worlds.
As Flock Of Dimes, Jenn not only fearlessly experiments with her sound but also her creative vision, and her self-produced debut LP is the culmination of years of development as a songwriter, instrumentalist and producer.
The forthcoming album’s aesthetic is tied together by a one-of-a-kind pattern called “Optic Interruption,” created by Baltimore-based textile artist April Camlin. When Reverend Guitars approached Jenn about a signature guitar series, she asked that this pattern be the visual effect. The Reverend JW-1 came to life last week at Summer NAMM and in honor of its reveal, Jenn penned a few words on her relationship to the guitar.
She explains how the instrument shaped her life and creative development, why she felt moved to accept Reverend’s signature guitar offer, and the challenges of working within a male-dominated musical landscape. You can read the entire piece on her MEDIUM page.
The Reverend JW-1 features a Charger HB-style Korina wood body with April Camlin’s “Optic Interruption” pattern, custom Classic H humbucker pickups, a 25.5″ scale maple neck, graphite nut and locking tuners, Reverend’s Bass Contour Control, and a dual-action truss rod. List price for the Reverend JW-1 will be $1199, and it will be available via Reverend and many guitar retailers.
