Dan Koshute is excited to share his new album All the Way Always, out today, September 7th. The Pittsburgh musician’s new solo album marks a break from his past work as the force behind glam rock favorites Dazzletine, and sees his songwriting reaching new creative heights. All the Way Always was recorded by Koshute in the guest bedroom of his grandmother’s house, leading to a record that is as intimate and warm as it is grandiose and theatrical.
Dan Koshute’s life beyond Dazzletine (and the lavish attire and glitter powered aesthetic that came with it) took shape almost immediately after the release of the aforementioned band’s last album.
After seven years writing and performing to fit a certain aesthetic, the newly discovered creative freedom lead to a prolific songwriting spree. At times, Koshute was completing one to two songs per day, maxing out the memory on his phone with demos recorded as voice memos. Not wanting to sit idle with creative energy coursing through him, Koshute sequestered himself at his grandma’s house in Mt. Lebanon, PA where he worked non-stop with co-producer Darren Diederich. Playing all parts on the record, Koshute finished All the Way Always after four meticulous months. “The process was a kind of a dark night of the soul at points,” explains Koshute, “because I did nothing but record for 4 months of my life, but it broke through something and established a new standard of creativity in me.”
Any fans of Koshute’s previous work worried about a more subdued and stripped down turn in his songwriting and recording should rest assured. All the Way Always expands and builds upon the his established body of work.
