Album Review: dave rawlings machine a friend of a friend

Acony Records is proud to announce the November 17 release of the Dave Rawlings Machine record,A Friend Of A Friend. The album features members of Old Crow Medicine Show, Benmont Tench from the Heartbreakers, Karl Himmel, Nate Walcott of Bright Eyes, and of course, Gillian Welch (from Gillian Welch’s Website).

The new album produced by David Rawlings by the band dave rawlings machine titled “a friend of a friend” is sensational.  The majority of the tracks are written by David Rawlings and Gillian Welch and performed by those two as well as musical guests Ketch Secor, Willie Watson, the rest of the Old Crow Medicine Show gang, and many others.  

The album features songs such as ‘To Be Young’ (originally co-written by Ryan Adams and Dave Rawlings) and Old Crow’s ‘I Hear Them All.’

There is a great coming together of talent on this album, and I highly recommend it if you are a fan of Old Crow, Gillian Welch, Ryan Adams, Allison Kraus, Norah Jones, the Wallflowers, and Emmylou Harris, all of which Dave Rawlings has played with and inspired.

Dave Rawlings is the magic-folk-bluegrass-rock;n’roll-man behind the scenes in all these bands.  He found and inspired and backed many of these artists.
