WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE OUR NEXT ALBUM WILL BE PRODUCED BY NO OTHER THAN THE AMAZING…
Craig is a wonderfully talented mixer, producer, engineer, and musician with over 20 years of experience in the industry. He is going to be coming to our home of New Orleans to incorporate his vast expertise from Wave Lab into our next studio album, and boy are we excited! This is what most of those dollars you all have donated to our Kickstarter are going towards, and we want you to know what a sound investment (pun intended) he is going to be in the making of our next album. If you doubt his skills, you can check out his full discography here, and a few of our personal favorite projects of his are listed below.
DEVOTCHKA – 100 LOVERS – 2011
Craig has worked with DeVotchKa not only on this album, but A Mad and Faithful Telling (2008), How It Ends (2004), and Una Volta (2003). We recommend that you listen to all those albums, but you can listen to 100 Lovers here.
CALEXICO – ALGIERS – 2012
Other Calexico projects that Craig has worked on include Carried to Dust (2008), Garden Ruin (2006), Convict Pool (2004), Feast of Wire (2003), Even My Sure Things Fall Through (2001) and more. Listen to Para from Algiers here.
I’M NOT THERE [Original Soundtrack] – 2007
This wonderful movie biopic of music icon Bob Dylan features various artists paying homage to a man who changed the face and sound of the music industry forever. Listen to Iron and Wine with Calexico covering Dark Eyes here.
AMOS LEE – MISSION BELL – 2011
It seems that once an artist works with Craig, they want to over and over again. As The Crow Flies (2012) was round 2 for Amos Lee after Mission Bell, his first collaboration with Craig. You can listen to Violin off of Mission Bell here.
NEKO CASE – THE WORSE THINGS GET, THE HARDER I FIGHT, THE HARDER I FIGHT, THE MORE I LOVE YOU – 2013
Craig has also produced Middle Cyclone (2009), Fox Confessor Brings The Flood (2006), and Blacklisted (2002). You can listen to Night Still Comes here.
WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP THOUGH!
Exciting stuff! As you can see, we’ll be making the absolute most of your contributions, but this is only the beginning. By the time we get everything recorded, mixed, mastered, designed, produced, distributed, marketed, and into your hungry ears, we’ll be scraping the bottom of our coffers! We’re now just over $1,000 away from hitting the goal of our Kickstarter project, but the more we invest, the better this album can be. We can fly or we can soar, and that’s entirely up to you. There are only three (3) days left before our deadline, and we’re confident that we can hit that mark and go beyond! We thank each and every one of our donors from the botttom of our collective Dirty Bourbon River Show heart, but we’ve got just a little further to go. Let’s knock this one out in spades!
