C’est La Vie was produced by Houck and recorded at his Spirit Sounds Studio in Nashville with Ricky Ray Jackson on pedal steel, Luke Reynolds on guitar and Houck’s wife Jo Schornikow on Wurlitzer and organ.

It chronicles a life-altering period which saw him fall in love, start a family, leave New York, build a studio from the ground up, and battle serious illness. “It’s laughable, honestly, how many life-altering events happened in the last half decade,” Houck says. “The most significant moments in your life make you feel your insignificance.”
