Cedarwell is a song-centered rock duo from the Midwest. Erik G. Neave writes intricate lyrics and dynamic narrative melodies supported by Jared Beckman's distinctive stand-up drum style and vocal harmony.
Their forthcoming album, Dia Luein, includes 8 unreleased tracks recorded at Honeytone Studios in Neenah, WI.
“"This iteration of these songs is another complex strata in the time-dilated onionskin of Cedarwell's rugged discography."”
Cedarwell's forthcoming album is called Dia Luein. Because of physical distance and life in general, we could only work on it a few days a year since 2016 and finally finished in 2020! The result of that process was a batch of 8 songs that span great emotional, geographic, and narrative distance—songs from the simplicity of single late-twenties life and from the excitement of new love/fatherhood and from the devastating confusion of separation in its myriad forms—always leaving and returning, searching for birth and life . . . and finding it!—but finding, too, the shadowy fringes of death and loss.
All eight songs were recorded at Honeytone in Neenah, WI - a world class studio built inside a beautiful victorian mansion.
