John Nolan has launched a PledgeMusic campaign for a new solo album.
For the past couple of years, between touring and recording with Taking Back Sunday Iíve been writing and demoing songs for a second solo record. Throughout this process Iíve worked with some great musicians who Iím lucky enough to call friends. Mike Strandberg, who plays with Kevin Devineís band has played guitar. Brian Bonz, a great singer songwriter has sang backing vocals. Iíve recorded some songs with Dylan Ebrahimian, who plays violin with Gabriel The Marine.

John Nolan is the guest on this week's Voice and Verse Podcast.

I had also just come off the Taking Back Sunday and Brand New ďfeud,Ē and that stuff got pretty old pretty quick to me.

A brief interview with John Nolan can be seen here.
QuoteI certainly wouldn't say that it's all been my song writing with a different name. I would say it's always been a combination of my song writing mixed with someone else's song writing or at least my song writing being influenced by the people I'm working with.

According to this interview, Straylight Run will not be recording this year due to money issues.
Interview Excerpt5. Besides touring for your solo album, will Straylight Run be recording a full-length and touring in 2010?

John: Unfortunately, itís looking like that wonít happen. Weíve had some interesting ideas for our next record, but there are a lot of practical and financial concerns that are probably going to prevent it from ever coming to be.

My interview with John Nolan can be seen here.
QuoteI'm sure there was music that influenced me on the record, but the big thing was getting back to a certain attitude in making music. That was the whole idea for this project was to get back to this attitude of having fun and messing around with ideas. Just to get back with the feeling I had when I was 19-20, recording songs on my four track.
