Artist: Railroad Earth
Song: “Lovin’ You”
Album: Amen Corner
Jersey natives Railroad Earth made a name for themselves through extensive tours and festival gigs, building a reputation and a following devoted to their complex sound, a mix of country, bluegrass, jam, jazz and rock and bearing comparisons to Hot Rize, String Cheese Incident and Yonder Mountain String Band. The instrumentation is superb, evidenced in concert, but their strong songwriting carries over to the studio as well.
“Lovin’ You,” from the band’s 2008 album Amen Corner, focuses on the vocals and songwriting, with the instrumentals only adding to the beautiful simplicity of the song. The earnest Americana bluegrass is softer here than in concert, testifying to the band’s malleability. If you enjoy the video, be sure to check out Railroad Earth’s tour dates.
