Jaydee Bixby Releases "Easy to Love" Sophomore Album
Canadian country star, Jaydee Bixby, releases his sophomore CD Easy to Love on May 25th. The ten song album features track after track of honest, captivating songs, an effort that finds Bixby blossoming into both a confident songwriter and an international artist.
When last we heard from Bixby in 2008, the Drumheller, Alberta native was a young, modestly green Canadian Idol sensation touring from coast-to-coast in support of his debut effort Cowboys and Cadillacs. In those two short years, he worked hard (harder than most young men his age), and won over hearts and stereos across the nation, founded on an exquisite voice and entertainment prowess.
In releasing Easy to Love Bixby reveals a more mature artist (both in content and that he has penned many of the album's songs), yet he stays true to his hat-wearing country roots. In Easy to Love's songs, Bixby has found the vehicle for his voice, artistry, and passion.
"I'm way more excited for every song" he reveals about Easy to Love's inspiration. "Some tracks are about ladies 'cause I'm still 19. But to have the opportunity to take the experiences I've had, sit down with some of my values, look at things that happen in the world and what I garnered from my parents and put it into music makes it way more personal to me."
Certain of his abilities but not so audacious as to eliminate the advice of mentors, Bixby immersed himself in the epitome of country's impressive legacy in order to realize Easy to Love. Committing time in Nashville solely to songwriting, Bixby completed many of Easy to Love's 10 tracks, co-writing with the likes of Anthony L. Smith, Gill Grand, and Ralph Murphy to name a few.
Songwriting complete, Bixby entered Vancouver's Armoury Studios with Cowboys and Cadillac's producers John Webster and Bill Buckingham, a duo he refers to as his "personal motivational speakers" for drawing out Easy to Love's earnestness and intensity.
The result of Bixby's collaborations is an album featuring stellar vocals and production, hooky up-tempo hits, and meaningful mid-tempo masterpieces. Having already spawned one Top 20 radio hit with "The Boy Inside the Man", Easy to Love is primed with other hits and is sure to add to Bixby's already large fanbase.
Easy to Love is released by On Ramp Records, distributed by EMI Music Canada, and can be found at all Canadian retail and digital outlets.
