Steve Martin & The Steep Canyon Rangers

The Long-Awaited Album

rounder records



cd

Released: 22nd Sep 2017

£12.99


The new album is a return to the style that popularized the collaboration and put world-renowned comedian and entertainer Steve Martin on the map in the Bluegrass/Americana world.

Rather than a departure, Martin’s musical career is an extension of the storytelling impulse that drove his work as a comedian, an actor, a screenwriter, a playwright, an essayist, and a novelist. “The Long-Awaited Album,” Steve Martin’s brand new project with the North Carolina group the Steep Canyon Rangers, is full of stories that mix humor and melancholy, whimsy and realism, rich characters and evocative details. And lots of banjos. That instrument—so dexterously, even acrobatically picked and strummed—proves just as crucial to relating these tales as the lyrics themselves, each chord and riff revealing depths to Martin’s narrators and to his musical talent.
