10th Anniversary 2LP reissue of his classic solo debut! First time on double LP!

Includes three unreleased tracks, unpublished photos and and essay by Capps!

Grayson Capps' debut solo album If You Knew My Mind turns 10 this year. In light of the milestone, Royal Potato Family is honoring the now classic recording with a special 10th anniversary reissue edition. The set features three previously unreleased bonus tracks, including Grayson's stunning version of the roots standard "Keep Your Lamp Trimmed and Burning." It also includes an essay written by Grayson addressing the period in his life when he recorded the album along with as yet unpublished photos. Originally produced by Grammy Award-winning engineer Trina Shoemaker (Brandi Carlile, Indigo Girls), she was enlisted to oversee the remastering process for its first ever release on vinyl in double-LP configuration.

If You Knew My Mind was initially released in conjunction with the major motion picture "A Love Song For Bobby Long" starring Scarlett Johansson and John Travolta. The film was titled after Grayson's song of the same name and was adapted from an unpublished novel written by his father Everett Capps. Throughout the album, Grayson recounts his time living in an abandoned house on the outskirts of New Orleans ("Get Back Up"), playing for change on Royal Street ("Washboard Lisa"), and the birth of his daughter ("If You Knew My Mind"), while songs like "I See You," "Mercy," and "Buckshot" remain staples of his live repertoire to this day.

Grayson's songwriting draws direct inspiration from the celebrated American southern literary tradition, often writing about the South and the idiosyncrasies of its people, landscapes and tempos. His lyrics, imparted with a profound poetic wisdom, take form as steamy, front porch blues and road-wise Americana. Music critic Bret Love wrote, "Like a whiskey-soaked, back alley poet sired by Tom Waits and Robert Johnson, Capps' stripped-down sound is rooted in the dark side of the Delta." While comparisons like such help paint a picture, Capps clearly has his own singular iconoclastic vision. Ten years later, his legacy has only grown as he's currently regarded as one of the South's most consistently compelling songwriters and performers.

Hailing from South Alabama and spending over a decade in New Orleans, revered singer-songwriter Capps has found listeners the world over enthralled by his stinging tales of the Southern Gothic. He explains in his own words: "I write songs which have the voice of dead prophets masquerading as town drunks screaming 'look at us we're pretty, too!'"
