The song was written by mandolinist Billy Thibodeau and Stan Keach, an uptempo grasser of lost love and suicidal ideation. It’s another happy-sounding bluegrass number with dark undertones.
In the video we see the band – completed by Alex MacLeod on guitar, Joe Deetz on banjo, Austin Scelzo on fiddle, and Rick Brodsky on bass – performing the song in an old barn. Alex sings the lead with Billy and Joe bringing harmonies.
Have a look/listen…
Alex tells us that the band has been hard at work this month finishing up their second album at Dark Shadow Recording. No word yet on a possible release date.
Starry Southern Nights is widely available from online download and streaming sites, and on CD directly from the band.
