Introducing: Band of Imperials

Greg Spradlin & the Band of Imperials
Recorded by Jason Weinheimer @ Fellowship Hall Sound
& Shane Smith @ Manny’s Estudio East LA.
Mixed by Tchad Blake.

Here’s one we’re excited to play for you… Featuring Greg Spradlin (The SkeeterHawks, Jim Dickinson, Sin City Allstars), Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello, Los Lobos, Sheryl Crow, Randy Newman, etc.) and David Hidalgo (Los Lobos, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits). The sessions began in Little Rock and moved west to Los Angeles to include a cast of additional players like Davey Farragher (Elvis Costello, Cracker), Rudy Copeland (Solomon Burke, Johnny “Guitar” Watson), and Charlie Gillingham (Counting Crows, Train).

Anchored by Greg Spradlin’s southern songs, vocals and playing, Hidalgo and Thomas rock through this album that is equal parts Southern Rock and Country Soul.

We’re offering two free downloads now, in advance of a full album that will be available in 2013.
