Darrell Webb recently re-signed with Rural Rhythm for the release of his second project with The Darrell Webb Band. Produced by Jim Van Cleve, much of the work on the record has been completed, and it is on track for a July release.
The album, which will be titled Breaking Down The Barriers, will feature several Webb compositions, including a new instrumental Norabelle, titled by combining his daughters’ names. Also included will be a cover of the Ronnie Milsap song, Prisoner of the Highway, one they’ve been including on their live shows recently.
While Darrell Webb has an impressive resume as a sideman with such acts as The Lonesome River Band, J. D. Crowe & The New South, Rhonda Vincent & The Rage, and Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, he and Rural Rhythm expect this release to build on the momentum he created with his debut as a bandleader on Bloodline, the first recording on Rural Rhythm for The Darrell Webb Band.
We’re told to expect more of the same hard driving, high energy instrumental and vocal work that has built Darrell’s reputation as one of the best mandolin players and singers in bluegrass.
Here’s a video message and live performance from Darrell and his team:
