May 18 2015, Los Angeles, CA: Famed Eagles songwriter Jack Tempchin, known for writing some of the most durable tunes in American music, is set to releaseRoom To Run, a new EP of original music tomorrow, May 19, 2015 through Blue Élan Records. In addition, Tempchin will be releasing a follow up full-length album –Learning To Dance – on August 21, 2015.

The releases span his breadth as a writer and performer, showcasing his flexible tenor voice. Both warm and intimate, his voice soars with unbridled joy, and is gracefully reflective. His powerful arranging skills and musicianship – strengthened by more than four decades of experience – can be heard throughout.

Best known for penning “Peaceful Easy Feeling” and “Already Gone” for the Eagles, Tempchin has written music for a variety of artists that includes George Jones, Glenn Frey, Randy Meisner, Glen Campbell, Emmylou Harris, Trisha Yearwood, and many others. He’s also co-written with a who’s who of American roots, rock and country composers that embraces Tom Waits, J.D. Souther, Bobby Whitlock, Jim Lauderdale, and Beth Nielsen Chapman.

Despite his storied musical history, Tempchin says, “I’m looking at myself as a new artist. These are all new songs and I’d like to be accepted based on them. I don’t believe in living in the past. I have millions of songs rushing through my head today, and a real passion for recording them and playing them live.”

Room To Run and Learning To Dance, Tempchin’s ninth and tenth releases respectively, are his first solo recordings for a record label since his 1978 eponymous debut on Arista. And, his signing inspired an outpouring of songs that has continued since the recording of the two new discs. “Knowing I’ll have a home for my songs now is very inspiring,” he attests.
