When you join a band at 20 years old, you don’t think about what it might mean to remain together for another 20 years,” says Matt Odmark, Jars of Clay’s rhythm guitarist, banjo player and harmony vocalist. In 2012, the Jars celebrated their 18th year together. They’d written over 100 songs, made 10 studio records, toured internationally and created Blood:Water Mission, an organization dedicated to providing clean blood and water for African nations suffering from the HIV/AIDS crises. Although the band has had its share of successes, including three GRAMMYs for Much Afraid (1997), If I Left the Zoo (1999) and The Eleventh Hour (2002), they began to ask themselves what comes next. For the answer, they decided to look inward and head inland.
Lead singer Dan Haseltine explains: “In Homer’s Odyssey, when Odysseus returns to land after a life on the sea, he’s told to take his oar and walk inland until he finds someone who doesn’t know what an oar is. For us, the story suggested moving from a comfortable place into unexplored territory. We decided to turn away from everything we’d done before and find our own voice as a band. It took a year of writing to complete the process, but we wanted these songs to be musically and emotionally honest, a believable expression of what’s going on inside of us right now. Inland seemed like a fitting title.”
