Crybaby Ranch “Boom, Boom, Boom” album design

Liner notes for Crybaby Ranch album design

Project Description


Crybaby Ranch is a Kansas City rockabilly band that I first met in 2011. In 2012, they played at my wedding and in 2015 I was thrilled when they told me they were recording an album. I insisted they let me create their album design and they happily agreed. Their sound is fun and gritty so I wanted to reflect that in the design with custom photos taken inside my stereo cabinet. Giving it a “live show” look, I spilled a little whiskey, set out a tip jar, laid out some Crybaby Ranch guitar picks, and mocked up and stomped on a set list (the track list for the album).
