TOOLSHED is all the stuff I love to do that doesn’t fall in the old time string-band music category — bluesy, funk, dixie, folk. Primarily original stuff with 3 covers thrown into the mix. This recording was like a laboratory experiment, where I dawned my safely glasses and lab coat and flexed my studio editing/mixing chops. Lots of overdubs and musicians from remote locations. Tubas, tablas, accordions, drums and such. Plus I invited some other singers to take over the lead on a few numbers; notably Ivan Neville, Travis Book, Bo Elledge and my son, Owen.
