GRAMMY winning vocalist-songwriter and revered guitarist Warren Haynes has premiered hisfolk/acoustic-oriented album Ashes & Dust featuring Railroad Earth.
While Haynes has been long recognized as a cornerstone of the American music landscape through his work with Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule and the Dead, his album Ashes & Dust featuring Railroad Earth is a musical departure for him and also his most personal album to date. The LP encompasses beautiful acoustic arrangements, a rootsy/Americana soundscape, folk-based songwriting and soulful, honeyed vocals. While many of the songs are brand new, Haynes wrote some of the tunes 20 or 30 years ago and has been waiting to find the right home for them. Special guests on the album include the incandescent Grace Potter, GRAMMY-winning singer-songwriter Shawn Colvin, famed harmonica player Mickey Raphael, and Allman Brothers Band bassist Oteil Burbridge and percussionist Marc Quinones.
