From Idée Fixe:
“An album of mature narratives sung in Webb’s distinctive voice, Provider’s songs feel at once personal and universal ranging from moving tributes to honest confessions highlighting an intimacy only hinted at in the past. Produced with Jeff McMurrich (Jennifer Castle, Owen Pallett, Sandro Perri), Bry along with lap steel player Rich Burnett, pedal steel player Mike Brooks, and upright bassist Tyler Belluz, recorded the bulk of the album entirely live off the floor. The results are organic, eerie and minimal and provide the perfect backdrop for Bry’s literate and detailed narratives. Departing from this approach are the songs “Undertaker” and “Ex-Punks”. “Undertaker” is a gorgeous poetic rumination on life and death filled with stunning imagery perfectly set within a beautiful Colin Stetson horn arrangement while “Ex-Punks” provides a sly nod to Bry’s past hanging electric guitars atop a thumping bass heavy beat.”
