Gran Bel Fisher went into the studio collaborating with Joey Waronker and Justin Meldal-Johnsen (who also play with Beck). Tracking then began at the legendary Sunset Sound, where seminal bands like Led Zeppelin and The Doors recorded. "One night I opened up this hidden room behind a wall where Jim Morrison did his vocals," GBF explains. "It was very haunting."

The bulk of Full Moon Cigarette was made in Los Angeles and mixed in New York with Michael Brauer (Coldplay, My Morning Jacket) and the preliminary reactions have been astonishing. "Lyrically and musically this is the record I’ve always wanted to make," GBF says. "The journey of making this album, even with some hard times and problems I ran into along the way, was really just a blessing in disguise." And with one listen to Full Moon Cigarette, you’ll understand exactly what he means.
