After being named Derek Webb's choice for Noisetrade's best album of 2013 with the C.S. Lewis inspired "The Weight of Glory: Second Edition", and just 6 weeks after launching his short film and album "Fort Wayne" exclusively here on Noisetrade, Heath McNease comes right back to share his first completely acoustic record, "Among Thieves."
Written and recorded in less than a month, this 10 track, stripped down, folk/singer-songwriter project showcases Heath's trademark raw lyrics and vocal honesty. McNease always manages to tackle complicated subjects like faith, doubt, fear, family, and salvation with a stark and open vulnerability that has garnered him a reputation as one of the sharpest and most exciting artists still flying under the radar today. This album was made as a "thank you" and as further advertisement for his film, "Fort Wayne", which can be seen and heard here on Noisetrade.
"I think "Among Thieves" is some of my absolute best work as a songwriter to date. They tell the truth of my life...and nothing but the truth. I'm honored to share this with everyone, and I hope they will share it with everyone they know. I also hope it will encourage them to watch "Fort Wayne" and download the "Fort Wayne" album as well as my entire catalogue, and continue to share and be advocates for art that only experiences growth through the enthusiasm and positive word of mouth that supporters give it, " says McNease. "So share it all with everyone you know!"
