Tied To The Tracks is the band’s third release and is produced by Vince Herman, the incomparable lead man of the progressive “Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass” band Leftover Salmon. Herman, a recent transplant to Oregon from his longtime home amongst the prolific Rocky Mountain bluegrass scene, lends his energy, creative style, and finely tuned ear to the production helm. Recorded at The Studio at Pacifica in Williams, Oregon (the old Steve Miller Ranch built in the 1970s) Tied To The Tracks was recorded, mixed, and mastered by multi-faceted videographer, drummer and Grammy award winning producer/engineer Dennis Dragon (Captain and Tennille, Johnny Rivers, Carole King).

Tied To The Tracks features nine originals and three covers. The album starts off briskly with “These Old Blues”, a song penned by bluegrass legend Larry Sparks, before weaving its way into the easy going licks of “Big Time (Country Dave)” written by fellow Oregon band, Jackstraw. The lonesome and timeless Bluegrass croon of “The Old High Way” and the title song “Tied To The Tracks” both have enough vintage flair, vivid presentation and emotional momentum to be more than your average songs about roads, trains and heartbreak. The instrumental tunes “Old 77” and “Ambush” showcase the energetic picking and impressive instrumentation of the band. Recording in a studio built by the legendary Steve Miller inspired the band to cover Miller’s tune “Fly Like An Eagle”, co-produced by Grammy winning Dennis Dragon, and including a guest banjo track from Leftover Salmon’s Andy Thorn. In the band’s own words, the song is like “Bluegrass tradition hitching a ride on a 70s acid rock school bus.”
