The Clouds is a project from Sumter County Alabama. Sponsored by the Coleman Center for the Arts in York and recorded on location in rural churches, living rooms, and the local library, The Clouds blend gospel and folk music to explore the ultimate inevitability of death and the love, fear, and beliefs that surround it. 

Written and produced by Stuart Hyatt, 88 people sang and played on the album. For the limited edition handmade design, Hyatt received a Grammy nomination for Best Recording Package.

This album is being re-mixed, re-mastered, and re-packaged for a special limited edition vinyl release.
