Todd Grebe & Cold Country shine on NEW Album Citizen



Johnny Horton's Gone to Alaska is one of my favorite songs, and was used in one of Duke's most entertaining movies, but Alaska is not where I'd first look for classic country music, but from the last frontier Todd Grebe & Cold Country bring us a throwback to the stylings of traditional Country music, built on a foundation of bluegrass reminiscent of the great Bill Monroe. With a mix of humourous songs along with heartbreak and loss, this is the kind of music for sawdust dance floor sashaying, boot slapping, and beer drinking.
In these declining days of Country music, it is so refreshing to hear real country music in my ears. If the legends are watching from above they're well pleased, Todd Grebe & the talented musicians that comprise Cold Country are the real deal and Citizen should be an album everyone's talking about.
Recorded at The Butcher Shoppe studio in Nashville with Grammy-award winning recording engineer David Ferguson, famous for his work with Johnny Cash, maybe we can hope we've crossed the rubicon and Country music moves toward this direction and Todd Grebe & Cold Country will be our North star.

Todd Grebe & Cold Country are based out of the wilds of Alaska, where for years they ruled the bluegrass scene in this state. Todd’s wife and musical partner, Angela Oudean, was a key member of famed Alaska bluegrass band Bearfoot for years (Todd joined Bearfoot as well), and though it may be a surprise to some that the music they make now is hard-driving, electrified honky-tonk at its core, the truth is that there’s a strong current that unites bluegrass and country. As a songwriter, Grebe crafts songs that stick with you, and though his clever wordplay as a songwriter is a key element, it’s the rough sheen to his voice that makes this music so country and so beautiful. Grebe’s got a voice tinged with the dust of the American West and the grit of Southern living, the kind of voice that first made country music great.

After a sucessful kickstarter campaign, Todd Grebe & Cold Country rolled into The Butcher Shoppe studio in Nashville to work with Grammy-award winning recording engineer David Ferguson, famous for his work with Johnny Cash, and dove deep into a more electrified country sound. Cold Country alum Nate May traded in his mandolin for a telecaster, and Larry Atamanuik (Alison Krauss) jumped on the drums. Bassist Mike Bub (Del McCoury, Ashley Monroe) came on to co-produce the album and play bass, and special guests were invited, like pedal steel wizard Steve Hinson (George Jones), renowned Nashville session pianist Jimmy Wallace, and guitarist Megan McCormick (Jenny Lewis). Todd and Angela led the parade, trading off harmonies on the songs, and bringing Angela’s hard-driving fiddle to the fore.

Rocky Mountain Bluegrass Trout Steak Revival NEW Album Brighter Every Day


"It’s not hard to see how integral the Rocky Mountain communal tradition is to the listening experience of Brighter Every Day. Grown out of fertile ground, Trout Steak Revival represents a sense of community that has become as unshakeable as the mountains themselves. In Colorado, the air is just a little thinner and colder, making Trout Steak Revival’s unique brand of bluegrass take on an exciting and pioneering timbre that is poised to keep listeners breathless for years to come."

Trout Steak Revival’s five members – Steve Foltz (mandolin & guitar), Casey Houlihan (standup bass), Will Koster (dobro & guitar), Travis McNamara (banjo), and Bevin Foley (fiddle) – each contribute vocals and songwriting in their post-modern approach to American roots music. Their collaborative songwriting process operates more like a collective than a traditional band, with one member bringing an idea while the others flesh out the arrangement with personal touches of instrumentation and harmony. Where it’s easy to use the cold technical language of “tightness” to refer to the arrangements, a better descriptor here might be “close-knit.” Trout Steak Revival’s concise yet multi-layered arrangements are derived from their years of experience playing with and nurturing each other creatively. Like the many bends in the Colorado River, each of the instruments diverge and run their own course, but always end up curving back around to the same destination.

 

Track List:
1. Union Pacific
2. Get a Fire Going
3. Oklahoma
4. Brighter Every Day
5. Ours for the Taking
6. Wind on the Mountain
7. Days of Gray
8. Sierra Nevada
9. Pie
10. Go On
11. Colorado River

Available Now on iTunes, Spotify, Cdbaby.com

"Most of the members of Trout Steak Revival originate from the Midwest, having moved west to settle in Colorado. Many of the songs on Brighter Every Day center on storytelling and the varying places and experiences they’ve each come from, echoing a tension between rootedness and wanderlust. The album opens with a petition to the Union Pacific railroad, reflecting on having seen everything from the “Mojave Desert” to “San Francisco Bay,” pining for home and pleading: “Won’t you take me down your track, let your whistle blow, and bring me back.” “Ours For The Taking” was originally written by Houlihan for his fiancé while “Wind On The Mountain” is about getting caught in a snowstorm during a backpacking trip. The title track, written by McNamara on piano for the wedding of two friends, was later brought to the band and arranged for a five-piece. While the piano is retained here, Trout Steak Revival turns what might have been a meditative processional into a full-fledged celebratory dance. Finally, the album closes with “Colorado River,” a gorgeously raucous ode to their Rocky Mountain home – “I’m swimming’ in my sleep, in the Colorado River deep.”
