I recently joined the Colorado Americana Jam Band “Great American Taxi” replacing Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon. These guys have been pals of mine since they started back in 2005. “Americana Without Borders” best describes their sound and I’ll bringing my singing, songwriting, B-Bender Telecaster pickin’ and more to this party giving the band sound a new flavor for sure. We just finished mixing our new album that Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth is producing and will be out later this year or early next. The band also features long time members: Chad Staehlyon keys, Jim Lewinon guitar and Brian F. Adamson bass. Carol Lee contributed lyrics to many of the songs on the new album.
Drummer Duane Trucks (Hard Working Americans) was invited to play on the record and is wonderful cat and great player who is the younger brother of Derek and nephew of Butch Trucks (Allman Bros drummer) and has been playing with Widespread Panic filling in for their drummer who’s been on leave since last fall. Duane will perform with the band on some of the dates in 2015. Nate Barnes (Rose Hill Drive, Ryan Bingham) will join the band on drums as well for some shows.
Producer Tim Carbone recently had this to say about the new recording project – “The sound of the new line-up is pure gold Americana! The songwriting is as sharp as ever and the boys are willing and able to experiment. The guitar playing is mind blowing!”
Come see our debut show Thursday 6/4 at the Fox Theatre in Boulder with the Grant Farm another great band!!! This evening is gonna be an epic jam fest of Telecaster Guitars and great songs!!!
