What do you get when you take a batch of incredible songs, five veteran players who have never played together, with an arsenal of five musical minds working in unison to reinvent them? You get Hard Working Americans. Genres meld seamlessly with the birth of this group, featuring artists from the Americana, singer/songwriter, experimental, jam and rock communities. Hard Working Americans is: Todd Snider (vocals), Dave Schools of Widespread Panic (Bass), Neal Casal of The Chris Robinson Brotherhood (Guitar/Vocals), Chad Staehly of Great American Taxi (Keys) and Duane Trucks of Col. Bruce Hampton’s school of music (Drums).
As the five band members came together, they had no idea what to expect. Snider, known more as a songwriter than interpreter of sounds. would just start singing and clapping, which then set the creative ideas in motion with his new band mates. This was uncharted territory as the players had not worked together previously, but it became an uninhibited, creative and fruitful environment as their chemistry was almost instant, a very pleasant surprise.
Hard Working Americans are releasing a self-titled debut from this new musicians’ collective, scheduled for a January 21 release on Melvin Records/Thirty Tigers. The album was recorded at Bob Weir’s TRI Studios is San Rafael, CA, mastered by Bob Ludwig and mixed by John Keane.
