There’s some sweet, sweet pedal steel sounds on “Rivers of Gold, the first solo single from Constantines frontman Bry Webb. Originally inspired by his first trip to Dawson City, the song resurfaced again while he was out in Britsh Columbia working on the National Parks Project and eventually made its way to Provider (released November 15 on Idée Fixe Records).
The recorded was recorded live off the floor and features lap steel player Rich Burnett, pedal steel player Mike Brooks and upright bassist Tyler Belluz. Produced by Jeff McMurrich (Jennifer Castle, Owen Pallett, Sandro Perri), Provider is a truly organic, eerie and minimal sounding record, giving Webb the perfect backdrop for his literate and detailed lyrics.
Bry Webb joins Feist on her upcoming Canadian tour: November 20, 2011 in Edmonton; November 21, 2011 in Calgary; December 1, 2011 at Toronto’s Massey Hall; December 3, 2011 in Montreal; December 5, 2011 at Ottawa’s National Arts Centre; December 6, 2011 in Quebec City.
