The new album marks SETZER’s first studio album since 2011’s Grammy Award-nominated album, “Setzer Goes Instru-Mental!”. SETZER brings his trademark twang and fretboard fire, and he’s backed by three musicians that he says “are the best in their craft”: Mark Winchester (bass), Kevin McKendree (piano) and Noah Levy (drums). Recorded in Nashville, the album was produced by Peter Collins (who’s handled the same honors for SETZER albums Vavoom! and The Dirty Boogie. 3-time Grammy-award-winner Brian Setzer is a ‘Musician‘s Musician“ credited with continually taking chances with innovative and daring musical styles, while singlehandedly resurrecting two forgotten genres of music (rockabilly in the 80s and swing in the 90s).
