Dane Joneshill : Everything That Rises Must Converge

Dane Joneshill is a Searcy local who released his debut album on January. 19th, 2018. “Everything That Rises Must Converge” is a breathtaking work of art. It is an album to get lost in. Each song is tender and true, and can inspire you to see goodness in the hard times. “I hope that anyone can listen to the songs and at least feel two things,” Joneshill said. “I hope they can say, ‘I’m not totally alone’ and ‘There’s a hope worth at least looking for. They can at least hope that there is hope.”

“I’ve been writing songs for 20 years and have always waited to make an album,” Joneshill said. “Something about now felt like the right time. I could not hang onto those songs anymore.” Joneshill has created an album that is intimate and pure for a stunning debut. Each song is created with passion, goodness and an outstanding amount of talent. “I think in some ways the record was just the most empathetic thing I could do, just extend it to people and go, ‘I hope that things will be better. I hope that somehow it will come back together in something else that is beautiful and helpful, That was the theme in the back of my head as I wrote songs the last few years.”

“A lot of them are about the struggles peoples find themselves in sometimes, not knowing how to wrestle their experience with pain, Joneshill said. “Hopefully that is there in all of these stories, people wrestling with that, looking for the light and just trying to hang on.” .“What will you do with your wild and precious life?” is the first line of the song “Fragments.” The song is about one character wondering about what he has done with his life. He had all of these things he wanted and intended to do and places he wanted to go. But life chips away at him. He gets surrounded by darkness and ends up feeling like he’s nothing. One night he sleeps and he dreams all of these grand and hopeful aspirations, realizing he still has things to hold onto. “I thought that was a beautiful picture of just hanging on,” Joneshill said.

Dane Joneshill is a talented storyteller. This track grabs listeners with its engaging narrative immediately. Armed with a classic piano, slide guitar, and cello, he creates one hell of a track. He is classic Americana, through and through. There is something for everyone on this track as the talented artist croons. His influences are expansive and exciting. We love this track on so many levels and believe you will too. It’s catchy gospel tinged climax is something special too.
