In 1997, Preston Girard started writing songs by setting the poetry of his father, novelist James Preston Girard, to guitar. Eventually he began writing his own lyrics and, in 1999, he recorded his first demo, which included the first version of “Leigha”, as well as “This Old Town” and a primitive version of “Pieces”. In 2001, he partnered with producer Jon Williams and recorded 11 tracks at Strobe Recording in Chicago. The resulting album, called Simple Life, was released in 2002. In July 2007, Preston once again partnered with Williams to create his new 11-track album, Along Chicago. In contrast to Simple Life, Along Chicago is a rock album not driven mainly by guitar and percussion. Preston and Jon instead focused on texture and nuance, utilizing keyboards, strings and vocals to pace the album’s mood. The result is an album more representative of Preston''s unique style, which combines elements of folk, pop, country, blues and classic rock.
