Ian Stewart After hearing Jason Webley on Welcome to Night Vale and having him recommended by Eliza Rickman, I bought most of the archive. This album is the one that speaks to me the most, with Icarus being my favourite song of the collection, and quickly becoming one of my favourite songs. Favorite track: Icarus.
Nineveh

Nineveh With a desperate longing to find and capture every grain of sweetness in hurt and despair Webley manages to turn even the darkest of moments into something beautiful. If there has ever been such a thing as a true master of oxymorons he sure earns the title. Favorite track: Music That Puts Everything Together.

about

This one is still my favorite.
It was recorded while I was nursing a broken heart in an old waterfront island hotel which I believe was haunted - so it is full of yearning, the motion of water, and ghosts. This was also the first record I made after my trips to Russia and I think you can hear reflections of the music I was encountering in those travels. It features a bunch of my best songs including 'Icarus', 'Map' and 'With'.

"An exquisitely varied album that references his earlier music while showcasing his move toward an entirely new sound."
-Seattle Weekly full article

"His albums have always emphasized the delicate, mindful quality of his craft… While musically inventive, and sometimes peculiar, ‘Only Just Beginning’ is by far Webley’s most sincere and direct work."
-San Francisco Weekly
