Damien Jurado's musical career began with the release of his debut 'Water Ave S' on Sub Pop in 1997. He went on to release three more records for the Seattle label before joining Secretly Canadian, a move marked by the release of 2003's 'Where Shall You Take Me?', a return to his trademark low-key folk-ballad style. Early in 2005 his next full-length, 'On My Way to Absence', arrived. Jurado continued to keep busy with 'And Now That I'm in Your Shadow', a spare, hushed collection of songs that arrived late in 2006; early the following year, 'Gathered in Song' was reissued with bonus tracks. His eighth full-length, 'Caught in the Trees', arrived in 2008, followed by the Richard Swift-produced 'Saint Bartlett' (2011) and 'Maraqopa' (2012).
