DERAILED BY NATURE - The New Album
Recorded in January 2012 at the Old School Recording Studio under the direction of Calvin Turnbull (Shelby Lynn, Cheryl Crow, Traveling Wilburys, English Beat), the 6 piece Smokehouse Gamblers band including primary songwriter Ted Baggett (Lead Vocals, Guitars, Keys, Harp), Dustin Smart (Lead Guitar, Vocals), Matty O'Shea (Bass, Vocals), Frank Pellkofer (Mandolin, Vocals), Jimmy Jacobs (Drums, Vocals), and Kevin Lynch (Percussion) holed up in the turn of the century building that housed the Caspar General Store back when the railroad rolled through and the forest was alive with lumberjacks. Enduring a wonderful week of classic Mendocino County winter storms (listen to intro/outro of Andrea Gail), the boys layed down 10 new tracks for the album.
What to Expect:
Mixing genres like creosote and corn whiskey, blended with rare sunshine and bell bottom bluesy folk, Smokehouse Gamblers atomic americana generates visions of terminal wisdom, broken windows and calloused woodsmen around a tire fire. Whether you trip over the upside down rake or the preacher man takes your mind, Smokehouse Gamblers load the van casing the neighborhood for good vittles and beer.
