The album finds Mastwyk traversing the world of country music; from the Appalachian mountains to the honky-tonk bars of Nashville and the multitude of back porches where Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark and so many other troubadours have penned many a heartfelt song. To inspire and fuel his songwriting for the album, Mastwyk travelled to the source – the American South, composing songs while in a state of transit across the country in trains and cars before returning to Melbourne to complete the songs that would become Mornin, Evenin. The album showcases Mastwyk’s ability to honour the traditions of the genre while tipping his hat to those that were crucial in shaping the direction alt-country music would take. Through his songs Mastwyk traces a line from Willie and Waylon, through Gram Parsons and on to contemporary songwriters such as Sturgill Simpson, Daniel Romano and Justin Townes Earle.
