Today, Albany-based singer-songwriter Gavin Preller shares his debut LP, There Is Wonder, out now on Kramer’s Shimmy-Disc label and Joyful Noise Recordings. The music video for “Midnight” is out alongside the album.
There Is Wonder is the debut-album of 21-year-old Gavin Preller. It was written and recorded between October 2020 and February 2021 in Albany, N.Y. Preller wrote, arranged, and performed every song from a minimal basement recording studio setup in his parent’s home – except for drums on two tracks, which were recorded by Leor Manelis. The first six songs on the record were conceived quickly – written, recorded, and mixed within one week. Upon sending those tracks to iconic producer Kramer for mastering, Preller was unexpectedly signed to the Shimmy-Disc label and encouraged to expand the six songs into a full record. Preller spent the following months completing the album while living at home and working part-time. Preller is now hard at work on his second full-length LP.
