The first single from the upcoming album will release June 28
Their love for history, vintage guitars, and well-crafted songs brought the two together five years ago. “I’m such an admirer of Tim’s writing, singing, and playing. Making a duo record with Tim was a logical step and a dream come true for me,” notes Jutz. Stafford says, “Thomm is such a great, unique writer, player, and singer - we connected and found so many ideas that spoke to us both. Recording was a breeze!”
"Take That Shot" is based on two unreleased photos of Billy the Kid and Robert Johnson. Jutz explains, “Those two photos revealed so much more about these two legends than anyone previously expected. Billy the Kid, in the newly discovered photo, looks like a boyish Huck Finn-type and not like a juvenile killer. Johnson looks like an upbeat young man with a guitar and not like the brooding bluesman with the cigarette dangling from his mouth we all know. We talked about other iconic photos that shaped American history, and this song fell in our lap.” “I love the idea that the art of photography can say as much as libraries full of books, summing up entire eras, defining moments in time,” Stafford adds.
"Take That Shot" moves at breakneck speed. Tim and Thomm trade lead vocals, supported by their friends Tammy Rogers on fiddle, Mark Fain on bass, Ron Block on banjo, and Shaun Richardson on mandolin.
