Next week, Dan Montgomery will begin recording those new songs with producer Kevin Cubbins, guitarist Robert Mache, pedal steel player Louis Meyers, bassist Andrew Simons, and drummer Jessie Williams.
“This is the third attempt I’ve made at another record. I can’t produce myself anymore. I’ll never work with me again,” Montgomery jokes. “Songwise, the cast of characters include homeless women, jazz bassists, birds, my parent’s ghosts, dealers, strippers, and losers, boozers, and users — people clinging to the edge and some well over it. You know, my usual,” he says. Fans have two more opportunities to hear the new material with a full band before Montgomery begins recording. Thursday, July 16th, they’ll play at Memphis Mary’s, and Friday, July 17th, they’ll perform at Otherlands. Showtime for both venues is 9 p.m.
