Missouri based artist Whettman Chelmets has released a new album called Joan which is out now via Flaming Pines. He explains: “These recordings came about as a reflection of my last few days with a woman who shaped me and took care of me and in a lot of ways was a second mother to me.

According to the press release, This profoundly moving album is made entirely from samples of the gospel music Whettman Chelmets and his family played to his grandmother Joan in her last days of life. Drawn from this private space filled with both sound and grief, it is a reflection on change, death and transformation.
