Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen calls SMA his second home

Austin based artist Peter More has announced the release of his debut LP Beautiful Disrepair, out June 29. More’s debut album was produced by Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen, and happens to be the first full-length from a new artist, ever produced by Fagen. In anticipation of the album release, More has shared the first track from the album, “In The Basement.” Listen to the track and share here.

“Most of the groove and time signature changes came about spontaneously,” More says of “In The Basement.” “We had been playing long sets at a residency down in Brazil so we got used to trying out new rhythms and interpretations of songs. I think that’s how it came about on ‘Basement’ when we got in the studio, trying a couple rhythmic ideas behind the guitar solo.”


A soulful nonchalance underscores much of Beautiful Disrepair, perhaps because it came together so fatefully. More had a chance encounter with Donald Fagen and his musician-wife Libby Titus in San Miguel de Allende, a lush, colonial enclave in central Mexico.

It’s a second home to the frontman, who has frequented the city since childhood. “What’s cool about San Miguel is that its collaborative culture attracts a lot of notable musicians and artists,” says More. “There’s a communal aspect to the town. I fell in love with that.”
