From the story –
I understand that you're working on the follow up to Gold Country, which was a great, great album...Chuck Ragan, and his band Hot Water Music, is quickly becoming one of my favorite artists. His two albums Feast or Famine and Gold Country (along with the split CD he did with Austin Lucas Bristle Ridge) are excellent and the fact that Audra Mae will be on his next record make me that much more excited about it.
Thank you. Yeah, right now we've got a couple-dozen songs and just got to get them down – it's time and we've got songs to put out. Next month, we'll be recording the record with Christopher Thorn, from Blind Melon, and he's a fantastic producer and engineer.
We're just going to hammer it out and have a great time doing it. It'll be the three of us – Jon Gaunt (violin player) and Joe Ginsberg (bass player) – and also a couple of our buddies from Lucero. We're doing it in Silver Lake (Los Angeles) so who knows who'll be in town and who's going to pop in and join in on the record – Audra Mae will be there for sure.
