Stapleton’s otherworldly voice, capable of both wall-shattering power to a velvety purr, gives a unique nuance to each of the 14 songs.  On his fifth album, Higher,  Stapleton takes something of an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” approach. Once again, he enlists frequent collaborator Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, John Prine) to co-produce the LP, this time alongside him and his wife, singer-songwriter Morgane Stapleton. 

Like Willie Nelson, Stapleton first found success as a writer of hits for other artists before seeing his own chart successes. Along the way, Stapleton has become a favored vocal partner for everyone from Adele and P!nk to Carly Pearce and Taylor Swift. 

Also like Nelson, Stapleton’s focus on the music, his excellence in constructing detailed stories and his uncanny ability to traverse musical landscapes have made him a timeless figure, and one that takes inspiration from a myriad of genres, as Stapleton weaves in country, soul, rock, and punk. On his new project, he also pulls in a couple of fellow singer-songwriters as co-writers, including Miranda Lambert and Carolyn Dawn Johnson.
