Ley Line will be getting back into the studio in February of next year to begin production of a “visual album project” that was shot on their recent Brazilian tour. Leandro Cesar (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) will co-produce the album in Austin, Texas in February and March. “Leandro is a renowned musician and luthier, creating marimbas and one-of-akind acoustic instruments,” said Ley Line. “The new album will serve as the base from which we will build upon to create a visual story recapping the essence of our three-month tour through Brazil. Using footage from live performances, nature, collaborations, folklore and life on the road, the album will debut in late 2018/ early 2019.” Ley Line recently returned from their first international tour through Brazil. Hosted by more than 30 venues between Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul and Recife, Pernambuco, the band presented a vibrant collection of multilingual songs that traverse the landscape of global folk music.

With the help of a local film crew, Ley Line produced a series of short documentaries featuring the unique places, artistic collaborations and people that influence their music along the way. “We hope our fans can experience the beauty of human connection through our music,” said Emilie Basez of Ley Line. “This tour through Brazil was a sociocultural journey. We are sharing our music with a wide range of demographics and partnering with organizations to explore music as a uniting force among all people.” The multimedia project and international tour was independently managed and produced by the four women of Ley Line, highlighting a female perspective of life on the road. “As we travel we find that we are a part of a global community of empowered women, inspiring one another to learn, explore and share our voices,” said band member Lydia Froncek.
