A few years ago we posted a track by Melbourne singer-songwriter Eddie Nuardo that really caught our ear with its lilting country sound. Now he’s back under the name Sunset Stranger, with this great track, ’60 Mile Yonder’, from his forthcoming new album.
Over a soft freight train shuffle, the guitars and fiddle lead the gentle charge with some wonderful interplay. The vocals sit in that sweet spot between country and folk, in the similar realm to David Rawlings and Willie Watson.
The song was recorded by Myles Mumford at Rolling Stock Recording Rooms, Melbourne and features Craig Woodward on fiddle, Luke Richardson on double bass and Nathan Power on drums.
