The latest album from Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver – and the first featuring the veteran band leader’s new bunch of pickers and singers – is due for release March 30 on Horizon Records.
Help Is On The Way was recorded over December ’07 and January ’08 with Darren Beachly on guitar/vocals, Joey Cox on banjo, Alan Johnson on fiddle, Carl White on bass/vocals, Josh Swift on resonator guitar/vocals and Lawson on mandolin/vocals. It is an all-Gospel project, a recurring theme in Doyle’s music.
“I believe these songs are timely for today and the way America’s over-all faith seems to be waning. Each song has it’s own message, but ‘Help Is On They Way’ is what I built the concept of this CD around.”
Doyle told us that working with his new band in the studio was “absolutely wonderful,” and that he is eager to get the new CD out there for everyone to hear.
“To me this recording has a freshness and energy about it. I know each one of us were excited about recording this first CD together. This is the most fun I’ve had recording in quite some time.”
The title track is being played on a number of bluegrass and Gospel radio stations, and you can expect to hear plenty more when promos are sent out in the next few weeks. Pre-ordering is enabled now on Doyle’s web site.
