Athens, GA folk-pop ensemble, Sea of Dogs have remained inactive for the most part, after their crooner and banjo picker relocated to North Carolina.
While in early 2016, the group assembled at GF studio and recorded a whole album’s worth of material, most of which remains indefinitely shelved today.
We are pleased now to have received word, down from the mountain, granting permission to release a song from those sessions, Old Woman.
Long-time listeners will immediately recognize the tune, as it was first released on their 2010 album “You’re Not Too Old” recorded and mixed by Tim Schrieber.
In a notable departure from the album’s full band arrangement, this alternate take on the song finds singer Emily Armond’s voice in a pure, yet vulnerable state, bouncing through hollows, embraced only by a warn, piano accompaniment, courtesy of Jacob Morris.
Stream and share “Old Woman” by Sea of Dogs via bandcamp or youtube.
Local weavers of the string dream known as “Old Smokey” have finished their debut record, titled “Wester Easter” and may we say, it’s an ear tickling treasure for sure. While we have not confirmed when it is to be released, our morning feeds are still spurting streams of magic via Robert Lomax’s direct vimeo line that reevealed a new video of the band’s latest single, “Leggy”. Shot on the spot at GFR, the clip captures cameo appearances by GF patrolmen Sgt Boogie and Funkin Duncan. Watch and Share via the player below :

Whilst sponging up the Nashville skyline, via a venue known as “The Nursing Home” I arose to the lawn with a glass of cheap chardonnay and managed to capture this fabulous song-writer, Cowboy Slim. He strung out an entire grab bag of wit, comprised with the usual hooks, but some how presented it all in a fresh fashion, “exciting and inviting” my mind back to fallen folk pickers such as the late Randell Hylton
Please watch and share this video of COWBOY SLIM’s original, “Just In Case You Fall In Love With Me” -from the grassy hills of Nashville, TennesSEE :
In a last minute surprise message that washed up on the banks of Shoal Creek just moments ago, a note read : “SCS to perform Tonight in Athens, GA at The Secret Swamp / 11pm – donate for the touring bands!”
