Americana Highways brings you this song premiere of Nate Smith’s “The Flood” from his upcoming album Some Kind of Dancing (produced by Smith, co-produced by Ted Ruddell Camp and Kyle Mann), due out on September 28. Some Kind of Dancing was recorded at The Station House Studio, Echo Park, CA (engineered by Mark Rains) and Speakeasy Sound Studios, Burbank, CA (engineered by Kyl Mann and Chris Binsfield). Then the project was mixed by Dave Way at The Waystation, Beverly Hills, CA and mastered by Dave McNair.
“The Flood” features Nate Smith on vox, guitar, and harmonica with Dan Wistrom on pedal steel. Craig Woods plays banjo and chain, and that’s Sarah Kramer you hear on glockenspiel and omnichord. Rhythmnists Ted Russell Kamp (bass and other percussion) and Jaimie Douglass (drums and percussion) hold down the beat.
The song is layers of roots rock rhythms and a down home sound, with an expansive vocal delivery with the raw energy of Bruce Springsteen. One listen to this one and it’s guaranteed to untangle your inner knots and reinvigorate your attitude!
