“What an honor to make a record at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio. It was very important to me to make a 100% analog recording on 2-inch tape to try and evoke the vibes of the records we grew up with. To do that in such a historic place is so profound to us. Also, producer Matt Ross-Spang is a longtime friend and the perfect cat to help our vision. There’s some classic 70’s rock feels, some RnB, some Texas, some Nashville….soulful Americana, with teeth. We are stoked to share it with the world in Spring 2019. ” – Devon Allman
“I’m very proud of this record. The song always ignites the flame, the connection to the listener and I feel like we have accomplished that. What an honor it was to record in Muscle Shoals, a place so rich in musical history and to work with Grammy-winning Matt Ross-Spang who shared the same vision as Devon and I. We are very excited to share with everyone soon!” – Duane Betts
