Biography
Singer, songwriter, classically trained pianist and acclaimed actor Alicia Witt (Justified, House of Lies) has confirmed the release of her first full-length studio album Revisionary History, out April 7 on Compass Records.

Produced by Ben Folds, Revisionary History was years in the making. Some of nine original songs on the album date back to the mid-’00s, which gave her plenty of time to hone them in concert before heading to Folds’ Nashville studio, where she recorded the album in two week-long chunks in the spring and late fall of 2013. The album features Folds on backing vocals as well as drums, bass, percussion, electric guitar and more. Multi-instrumentalist Joe Pisapia also lends acoustic guitar, pedal steel, backing vocals and additional percussion.

Revisionary History is full of songs that deal in themes of heartbreak, loyalty and the amazing power that comes with finding your own voice —and using it. “This record is probably the most personal thing that I’ve put out,” says Witt, who released a self-titled EP in 2009 and the full-length Live at Rockwood in 2012. Both releases happening in between parts in films and on TV (including a recurring role on this season of Showtime’s House of Lies) in an acting career that began with her debut in the David Lynch sci-fi classic Dune in 1984, when she was 7.

For all the autobiographical touches on Revisionary History, it’s also a collection of deeply relatable songs. The reflective piano ballad “Friend” opens the album with Witt sifting through feelings of attraction for someone she knows should be just a pal and not a lover, while the aching vocal showcase “Consolation Prize” pairs torchy piano with taut electric guitar accents as Witt muses over the ways in which we edit our pasts to fit the present.
