Eddie 9V is pleased to announce that he will release his third album via Ruf Records on January 27th. Capricorn, named after the legendary Capricorn studios in Macon, GA., is reputed for its output of the Allman Brothers and Otis Redding. The Atlanta-based artist sought out Capricorn Studios for the specific southern sound he required and spent more time crafting each song.

Capricorn and the bands who blew through it urged the Atlanta guitarist to ditch school at 15, play his fingers bloody through the south, and turn apathy into acclaim for early albums Left My Soul in Memphis (2019) and Little Black Flies (2021).


Eddie spent his first quarter-century admiring Capricorn from afar. But in December 2021, the 26-year-old finally put his thumbprint on the studio's mythology, corralling an eleven-strong group of the American South's best roots musicians to track his third album. "There was overwhelming excitement at being in such a legendary studio," he says, "But we hugged and got right to work. Everyone was joyous, loving, and flat-out playing their asses off." Capricorn will be released January 27th on Ruf Records.
