Jeff Larson will release his 1st full length solo album in a decade, the melodically sparkling and California themed “Adobe Home”, April 19th, 2024, via Nashville based label Melody Place.

Produced by veteran California singer songwriter with Gerry Beckley of America, the album will be launched March 8th with the Larson composition “Something of A Dream”. The 13 track album comes on the heels of “It’ll Never Happen Again”, the veteran singer songwriter’s acclaimed 2023 6 song tribute EP to the late iconic singer and songwriter Tim Hardin.

Jeff Larson wrote 8 of the 13 songs on “Adobe Home”, 2 with legendary songwriter Jack Tempchin (of Eagles’ “Peaceful Easy Feeling” fame), 1 with Beckley, and 1 with Robert Lamm of Chicago, and 1 is an original song by Gerry Beckley. It’s an album with subject matter that touches on people, places, and things with styles ranging from americana, folk rock, power pop, and some jazz elements.

“This project started in 2020 when I just moved to the San Diego area, from the San Francisco Bay area”, says Larson. “Exploring and learning about my new surroundings influenced several songs, starting with ‘Adobe Home’, ‘This Summer’, and ‘Better Part Of The Morning’. I’ve continued my ongoing collaboration with co-producer and friend, Gerry Beckley”, he adds. “We help each other as sounding boards on the production side, we co-wrote one song, and he plays bass and keyboards throughout the album. I also became friends with Jack Tempchin, who is a neighbor. Along with producing a record for Jack, we co-wrote a couple of songs for this album. I think it captures the time it was written and the emotions I went through”.
