Alex Mabey’s new album, The Waiting Room, deals with the collapse of her marriage from her perspective stemming from experiencing the cycle of addiction and PTSD of her former husband. The 15 track album sets out a path for its listeners: from navigating grief of a heartbreaking ending, weaving between what it means to offer grace and still find the courage to leave to examining what it means to live life freely, facing the hard questions with honest answers during a vital time of decision that will change the course of her life.
“It’s called The Waiting Room because it recalls the period of time before finding the answer—the miracle—that I was waiting for, both with my broken marriage and my autoimmune struggles,” she says. “I want this album to sit with people in theirs and give them comfort first, then empowerment to get free.”
Alex worked with Grammy-winning producer and engineer Casey Wasner—who won for his work on the collaboration between Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’— along with guitarist Nate Dugger (Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors, pianist Pete Wasner (Amy Grant, Vince Gill), bassist Brian Allen (Jason Isbell, A Star Is Born) and guest vocals from singer-songwriter Tony Lucca.
