4.20.12 – Yesterday one of our musical heroes, a true American original, Levon Helm passed on.
By some strange twist of cosmic fate, we were in his birth-state of Arkansas when we heard the news. There was some sort of comfort in knowing we were treading on the ground that sculpted the man and set him on the path to utter and complete righteousness.
We wrote this song right before our show in Little Rock last night to play during a mini-Levon tribute encore. This is a demo of the song as we recorded it in the parking lot.
Although we’ll never get to hear his voice in the present anymore, we are incredibly lucky to be able to be with our friend whenever our ears are open.
Play us one more song cuz.

10/11/2010 — With Sunday’s news of the passing of the great soul singer Solomon Burke, we’d like to give you a free download of the song “Millionaire”. Our friend the incredible songwriter Kevin Welch wrote the song and Solomon Burke recorded a version of it in 2006 on an album titled “Nashville”. Solomon Burke’s version inspired us to take a shot at recording it. 10/10/10 R.I.P. King Solomon

Check out Kevin Welch’s music HERE. He has a new record out called “A Patch of Blue Sky”.
9/10/10 — We’re trying to share some new/old music as often as possible through the mailing list and the website so here goes another free song… This acoustic cover of The Flying Burrito Brothers’ Sin City was an outtake from the “One Foot In The Ether Sessions.” Written by Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman, this song has all of the components of a great country song. Dig in.
Between tour dates, we’ve been at Top Hat Studios in Austin working on songs for a new album. As we get closer to finishing things up, we’ll be sharing some stuff with you, so stay tuned. On Facebook we’ve uploaded some recent photos from the recording sessions.
Back to the long and winding road this week as we hit some of our favorite spots in the southeast.
Until next time.
