Eraserland is the sixth studio album from Strand of Oaks (Timothy Showalter).
Showalter felt the pressure to deliver songs worthy of musicians he had admired long before and after a 2015 Oaks/MMJ tour. So, in February 2018, he spent two weeks alone in Wildwood, New Jersey writing and demoing all the songs that would eventually comprise Eraserland. In April, he went into the studio to record with Kevin Ratterman at La La Land Studios in Louisville, Kentucky, with My Morning Jacket members Patrick Hallahan (drums), Bo Koster (keys), and Tom Blankenship (bass) as his band. Jason Isbell also contributed his Hendrix-esque guitar work to Eraserland, while singer/songwriter Emma Ruth Rundle provided gorgeous vocals.
Every song was recorded live, with all musicians playing together in one room and working to bring Showalter’s ideas to fruition.
