Artist/producer/composer Bebo Norman
has announced the September 19th release of his fifth studio album, and first in two years, Between the Dreaming and the Coming True,
on Essential Records. The new project was co-produced by Bebo Norman
and artist/producer Jason Ingram.
Track 6, “The Way We Mend,”
was produced by Glenn Rosenstein.
According to Norman, “Between the Dreaming and the Coming True is a turning point for me as an artist. Everything feels new to me again; from the writing process to production and performance. I really couldn’t be more pleased with how these songs turned out, and I can’t wait to get on the road and play them live.” With the arrival of the new album, fans are certain to see and hear a new Bebo Norman, one that has fully stepped into a new place in life. Norman adds, “I’m at a place in my life where I realize it’s alright to be confident.that you can’t be the underdog forever.”
The result of this new-found confidence can be heard on the project through string and horn arrangements that provide more lush and majestic moments, while still being raw in places. String arrangements for the project were done by John Painter. Norman, along with Painter, arranged horns on “I Know Now,” with Painter playing French horn, trumpet and trombone on the song.
