A deluxe expansion of the Catch & Release EP from January 2015, Catch and Release (full album) is my latest creation! It is a collection of nine lushly arranged original songs ranging from bossa-nova to epic acoustic folk journeys to honky-tonk swing jazz to old time banjo tunes, all woven around the theme of impermanence and savoring life’s ephemeral and tragic beauty.

All music and lyrics written by Searra Gisondo (except the rap verse on "I Came to Get Down," written and performed by Truth I- Manifest)

Recorded by Kevin Harvey at Griffyn Sound, Anthony Dorion at Good Flow Productions and Aaron Price at Collapseable Studios. Mixed and Mastered by Kevin Harvey.
