ABOUT THE TOKEN: STORY AND STORYTELLER ARE ONE AND THE SAME
“I really can’t express my vulnerable thoughts – especially towards men I've had feelings for over the years,” Elise confesses, “But, I have no trouble writing down painfully honest lyrics about it.”
THE TOKEN is a diary depicting true instances from Elise's life and acutely examines the pressures placed on females in the south versus a more modern perception. Elise Davis places her human condition in the forefront for all to hear, The Token delivers an unrelenting living contradiction, one born of her past while wrestling with the present.
THE TOKEN was produced by Sam Kassirer – keyboardist in Josh Ritter's band and an accomplished producer known for work with the likes of Ritter, Lake Street Dive, Erin McKeown, Langhorne Slim, and others. During the winter of 2015, Davis and Kassier decamped to his Great Northern Sound Society studio in rural Maine to record the album.
The instrumental support was delivered by guitarist Josh Kaufman (Day of the Dead collaborator with Aaron and Brice Dessner of The National, Craig Finn, Bob Weir), bassist Bradley Cook (Sharon Van Etten, Indigo Girls), drummer Matt McCaughan (Bon Iver, Hiss Golden Messenger).
