Music career

Jurado's solo career began during the mid-1990s, releasing lo-fi folk based recordings on his own cassette-only label, Casa Recordings Gaining a local cult following in Seattle, he was brought to the attention of Sub Pop Records by Sunny Day Real Estate singer Jeremy Enigk After two 7" releases Motorbike and Trampoline Sub Pop issued his first full album, Waters Ave S in 1997 His second album Rehearsals for Departure, was released in 1999, produced by Ken Stringfellow The Posies, Big Star, REM

He often makes use of found sound and field recording techniques, and has experimented with different forms of tape recordings In 2000 he released Postcards and Audio Letters, a collection of found audio letters and fragments that he had found from sources such as thrift store tape players and answering machines Also released in 2000 was Ghost of David, Jurado's bleakest and most personal sounding record to date I Break Chairs 2002 was produced by long-time friend, Pedro the Lion's David Bazan It was his last album for Sub Pop, and was a much rockier, electric affair

After signing for the Indiana-based label Secretly Canadian, Jurado reverted to his trademark folk ballad-based style, releasing four more albums: Where Shall You Take Me 2003, On My Way to Absence, 2005 And Now That I'm in Your Shadow 2006 and the rockier Caught in the Trees 2008
