“Salsipuedes” available now
2008′s release “Dulcinea” explored the connection between California and Texas using stellar roots musicians from both.
The 2013 release “Salsipuedes” is an album of all new original songs featuring musicians mainly from Los Angeles, a West Coast album to be sure but with some of their Texas regulars from both Houston and San Antonio.
Produced by David Raven and recorded primarily in California (and Texas). It features a collective of talented men and women both young, upcoming and older well established players all whom have played and/or still play with the band. They may not be household names as such but have worked with some of the most respected and well known artists in the world.
They also couldn’t completely stay away from the well known respected artists they’ve been known to utilize in the past as two of the new songs feature the guitar playing of the one and only Dave Alvin.
Salsipuedes translates to, “Leave If You Can”. One listen to this album of clever well written bi-lingual songs, steeped in traditional forms but with an unmistakable originality to them and you’ll be as hooked as the title suggests. Traversing locales from California to the Southern States to Mexico with as many styles, stories and characters one can imagine. although these words are used to describe a lot of recordings this one is a truly diverse, eclectic offering.
The live shows have also been well received where they’ve wowed fans at places like Les Schwab Amphitheater’s Summer Concert Series in Bend, Oregon, Claremont Folk Festival, Los Feliz Street Festival, Topanga Banjo and Fiddle Contest and Folk Festival, The Sisters Folk Festival in Oregon, FogFest in San Francisco, The Claremont Folk Music Center, The Full Moon Folk Club-Edmonton, North Country Fair and Ironwood Stage in Alberta Canada and venues from Mississippi to New Orleans to Washington state where they’re loved by old and young alike. They’ve participated in music workshops for kids and adults, hosted house concerts and roots music TV shows, have done numerous in-store and in-studio radio appearances. They’ve received airplay on more than 75 Americana stations and made several Americana/roots charts and best of lists.
The song “Cowboy Lullaby” (Dulce’s Dream) is featured in the closing sequence of
director Wlliam Stetz’s 2010 film “A Handmade Life”.
