The classically trained pianist, songwriter and arranger self-produced and recorded her new album in Turquoise Noise studio in her hometown of Nashville. View the trailer for Sweven HERE. Waggoner handpicked a close group of musicians and family members to work on these recordings and created music throughout the latter half of 2014. She had a self-imposed deadline for the recording saying, “My only goal was to finish it before my son was born. It came down literally to the day.”
While creating the music for the album, Waggoner found herself drawing on her present while revisiting her earliest work. She sought to continue an ongoing theme started in her debut EP Fresh Pair of Eyes, which the London Sunday Times called,  “One of the most exciting releases to come out of America in 2007.” She wanted to tackle directly a conversation about aging of which she says, “the beauty that lies within every notch on your belt, the good ones and the bad.”
