A Bluegrass Tribute to Audioslave
In addition to providing me with a unique challenge as a producer and arranger, this project gave me a wonderful chance to polish my bluegrass chops again. I got to play guitar, banjo, bass, and rhythm mandolin. I also ended up singing all but two of the backup vocal parts.
My good friend and former bandmate Nathan Wilson played fiddle and lead mandolin, and also sang tenor on Show Me How to Live. The lead vocals were quite capably handled by Derek Johnson of The High 48s.
Unfortunately, Calvin Records no longer exists, so I am unable to get additional copies of this project. If you are particularly interested, you may still be able to purchase the CD through Amazon.com, or other retailers, who still have limited inventory of this project. The project may also be available through iTunes.
