New Lane Kristian/Mark W Winchester CD “LAMA”

“LAMA” is a collaboration with one of my favorite Nashville roots Guitarist/Singer/Writers Lane Kristian. Lane plugs straight in to the amp, and he and I have shared stages for years since he moved here from Illinois. We share a deep affinity for jump blues, particularly Wynonnie Harris tunes. One day Lane called to say he wanted to come over and show me some new original songs. The first one was “Permission Slip” (a true story) and I said, “Let’s make a recording of it”, so we did. We liked it. We enjoyed the process so much, we decided to get together a couple times a month and record more songs, just me and him. Usually we would track Lane’s lead vocal and guitar (with me on drum kit) live, then put other stuff on. The songs I sang lead on were tracked live with me on upright bass and Lane on guitar. We wrote one song together,and made an instrumental up on the spot one night. Eventually, we had these 11 songs “in the can”, as they say, and decided to release them onto the unsuspecting world.
