The new album Safe Haven, from Courtney Gains, is not only a musical endeavour worth celebrating but a testament to Gains’ artistic evolution. Gains who is best recognized for playing Malachi in the 1984 classic “Children of the Corn,” is also a pretty accomplished musician. on the new album, Gains demonstrates a remarkable departure from that onscreen persona. His music blends stripped-down and straightforward rock vibes with folk-informed sensibilities. This album was written, recorded, and produced by Courtney Gains.
The album is intimately Gains, with lyrics that give his sarcastic and darkly humorous take on today’s world. The singer-songwriter does not mince words when commenting on the inspiration for Safe Haven, “To me, this record is about calling bullshit on some things I think are really fucked up out there!”
Safe Haven is out now on digital and CD formats through Fake Fangs Records.
