David Gideon — “Lonesome Desert Strum”
Americana Highways is hosting this video premiere of David Gideon’s song “Lonesome Desert Strum,” the title track from his forthcoming album scheduled for release on October 22nd on Gideon Music House. Lonesome Desert Strum was produced by Gideon; mixed by Quincy Miller; engineered by Luke Martin and Joe Victor; and mastered by Billy Stull.
“Lonesome Desert Strum” is Gideon on lead vocals; Savannah Driebe on backing vocals; Dave Roe Rorick on bass; Pete Abbott on drums; Kenny Vaughan on lead and rhythm guitar; and Larry Chaney on baritone and steel guitar. With a low Western country intro, David Gideon spins a tale of spooky lonesome darkness with an noir edge. His style is the suspense of the dark Southwestern desert. The video works in moonlight scenes outside of town, with flickering flames and deer emerging from unknown shadows to bring the song’s imagery to visual life.
With a video shot in Billy The Kid’s hometown of Silver City, New Mexico, the song “Lonesome Desert Strum” was inspired by a term used by Kenny Vaughan to describe my style of playing while we were recording in the studio. I decided it would not only be the name of this song, but of the whole album. — David Gideon
