About the band:
THE BLUFF CITY BACKSLIDERS second, as-yet-untitled album will be released in time for a show June 16 (Father’s Day) at the Levitt Shell in Midtown Memphis’ Overton Park. The record was recorded at world-famous Sun Studio in downtown Memphis on the same spot where the legendary Sam Phillips recorded Howlin’ Wolf, Rosco Gordon, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley, among many others. Produced by the band and engineered by Ples Hampton and Crockett Hall, the record highlight’s the band’s original songs that take up and extend the sounds of early 20th century music upon which THE BACKSLIDERS have built their unique sound.
