Hard Working Americans are celebrating great songs and throwing a hell of a party.
The band is proud to introduce their self-titled debut album, scheduled for release January 21st on Melvin Records and Thirty Tigers. These five veteran players are putting in the hours and keeping at the grind for music lovers everywhere.
Clocking in for the night shift:
Todd Snider - Vocals
Dave Schools - Bass Guitar (Widespread Panic)
Neal Casal - Guitars and Vocals (Cardinals and Chris Robinson Brotherhood)
Chad Staehly - Keys (Great American Taxi)
Duane Trucks - Drums (Col. Bruce Hampton’s School of Music)
Led by Snider’s intrepid vocals and backed by a band of ace players, the Hard Working Americans created fresh song arrangements to tell stories of the everyman and woman- the frustrated and downtrodden, the gritty and gorgeous, the blue-collar and no-collar- hard working folks that give this country a backbone.
Recorded at Bob Weir’s TRI Studios in San Rafael, CA, the album was produced by Dave Schools and Todd Snider and mixed by John Keane. Special guest artists include John Popper and John Keane.
