“’All I Had To Lose’ is one of the most personal songs I’ve ever written,” Morton says. “Mark Morales’ incredible vocal performance really brought it to life and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I’m so grateful to get the opportunity to stretch out stylistically and appreciate everyone who’s given this stuff a listen!”
‘Ether’, a primarily acoustic five-song EP, is scheduled for release on January 17 via Rise Records.
As with last year’s solo debut, Anesthetic, the guitarist enlisted the talents of various musicians and vocalists to bring his songs to life. In addition to Morales, who regularly tours as part of Morton’s live band, Ether features appearances by Lzzy Hale (Halestorm), Howard Jones (Killswitch Engage, Light the Torch), John Carbone (Moon Tooth). The EP is made up of three original songs and two covers that once again showcase Morton’s diversity as a musician.
1. All I Had To Lose (featuring Mark Morales)
2. The Fight (featuring John Carbone)
3. She Talks To Angels (featuring Lzzy Hale) *The Black Crowes cover
4. Love My Enemy (featuring Howard Jones)
5. Black (featuring Mark Morales) *Pearl Jam cover
‘Ether’ was produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Gojira, Trivium).
