Wild Earp has released a new song in ‘Same Old Sorry Lesson’ which hits some mighty fine traditional country and honky tonk sounds and themes. He does this kind of thing so well, with the sublime backing of his band The Free for Alls. The song follows his 2020 release ‘Oligarchy Blues’. Here in Australia, this is one for fans of artists like James Ellis & The Jealous Guys, Michael Carpenter & The Banks Brothers etc to check out.
“I’m very happy with the sound and feel of this track. I wanted to echo the timeless quality of the lyrics and melody with a recording approach from the golden age of country and western music. We recorded to tape at Treehouse Records in Chicago, and I feel like the engineer Barrett Guzaldo was able use my direction to dial in a vintage sound that still will resonate with country fans today. I think the song has broader appeal, though, as the struggle of trying to change your deep-set habits is fairly universal.”
