[NEW SONG] Will Hoge feat. Sheryl Crow - "Little Bit of Rust"

From the Rolling Stone magazine:

"My kids started a band and they rehearsed in my garage," he says of his sons, ten and six. "It brought me back to this whole place. They can barely play any chords, and our neighbor plays drums. But it was joyous and fun, and a full circle moment. That [joy and fun] was what I was missing. I was like, 'OK, I need to focus on that.' And I went into full writing mode again."

What was born from that revelation is Anchors, eleven self-produced tracks that are rooted in that youthful jubilance but tell the stories of grown men and women who have seen, loved, moved on and made amends. Like the first single, "Little Bit of Rust," a duet with Sheryl Crow.

"Ain't nothing we can't fix, ain't no broken trust. Ain't no great divide between the two of us," Hoge and Crow sing in unison on the roots rocker, with mandolin and fiddle courtesy of Fats Kaplin. "Just the heavy hands of time, kinda wear away the shine. But don't worry, it's just a little bit of rust.

Hoge had originally thought about including the track on Small Town Dreams, but put it aside, and went in search of the perfect female counterpart when he decided to give it another life. A song about mature love needed a mature voice – one that had been through relationships and back again. Crow, a friend of Hoge's and his family (their kids play together), immediately said yes.

"Sheryl has been someone whose work I have loved ever since her first record," says Hoge. "She is one the best singers, musicians and producers I have been around. I called her and asked if she would sing on it, and she didn't bat an eye. I didn't want to sing it with some eighteen year old, I wanted it to be a grown woman. And she's just the best. It cuts to the core of what the record is about. It talks about things being difficult, but they are in the trenches working it out together."

REVIEW

By George Paul
Orange County Register

On “Be Myself,” the infectious title track to Sheryl Crow’s latest album, she sings, “If I can’t be someone else, I might as well be myself.” Although it’s about today’s hipsters, the sentiment could also apply to the approach Crow took to making her new music.

Following impressive, but somewhat overlooked forays into country and old Memphis-style soul music, the veteran singer/songwriter went back and re-listened to successful ’90s efforts such as “Sheryl Crow” and “The Globe Sessions” to rediscover what made them click. Then she reteamed with longtime collaborator Jeff Trott.

The pair co-produced and played most instruments on “Be Myself” and got their old friend, studio whiz Tchad Blake, back to mix it. What results in an earthy vibe, expansive sonic blend and topical lyrics (social media, the presidential election) which makes it stand among Crow’s best albums to date.

Thursday night at the Greek Theatre, Crow and her solid six-piece band kicked off a strong, nearly two-hour concert with “Everyday is a Winding Road.” She sported a wide smile and t-shirt that read “Lover,” while drummer Fred Eltringham’s read “Peace.” The slinky groove on “A Change Would Do You Good,” like many other tunes played in Los Angeles, was extended without becoming self-indulgent. Their spirited delivery on big ’94 hit “All I Wanna Do” was an early highlight and the line “This is L.A.” received a loud cheer from the crowd.

Tasty dual electric guitar work from tour mainstays Audley Freed and Peter Stroud elevated the late 1960s/early ‘70s Stones feel of “My Favorite Mistake” and “There Goes the Neighborhood” (the latter with a quick vocal nod to Mick & Keith’s “Heartbreaker”).

Before “Be Myself,” Nashville resident Crow gave a shout out to Stanley Cup playoff team the Predators and joked about it being a “great day with the Jim Comey playoffs” (referring to the ex-FBI director’s congressional testimony earlier in the day).

The set’s half dozen new songs fit well with older material – especially sinewy midtempo rocker “Halfway There,” which revolves around both political sides finding common ground (guitarist Gary Clark Jr. guests on the studio version) – and the ominous “Heartbeat Away” (as in a leader “with his finger on the button”)

Crow was in a congenial mood throughout; she teased a bit of Roy Orbison’s “Blue Bayou” amid “Can’t Cry Anymore,” but forgot the lyrics. Instead, the singer did some high trills. Fans responded wildly to the pleasant Cat Stevens ballad “The First Cut is the Deepest,” but were subdued for a laid back, spacey version of “Leaving Las Vegas,” on which Crow did an interpretive dance and said, “I used to be a dancer. That’s an alternative fact.”

During the final stretch, Crow’s harmonica work on the bluesy stomp “Best of Times” was fantastic. Trott joined in on guitar for “If It Makes You Happy” and closer “Soak Up the Sun” was pure fun. Lukas Nelson, who opened the show with his band Promise of the Real, appeared with Crow for a fine encore duet of the Allman Brothers Band’s “Midnight Rider.”

Nelson and company’s 50-minute warm up set of self-described “cowboy hippie surf rock” was riveting as Willie’s son sang soulfully and immersed himself in frequent guitar solos. Standouts included the organ-drenched “Four Letter Word,” the lurching “High Times” (which name checks CNN and Fox News), dreamy affecting ballad “Forget About Georgia” and the catchy, harmony-rich “Find Yourself.” An inspired closing take on Paul Simon’s “Diamonds on the Souls of Her Shoes” prompted dancing and went down a storm.

[LIVE REVIEW] Manchester - 20 May (AMBY)


Review and Photo by Iain Fox
Published on amusicblogyea.com

Sheryl Crow’s last visit to Manchester accompanied the release of the criminally under-appreciated, country-themed record Feels Like Home. The 2014 show was therefore littered with a hefty spread of the album’s best cuts, of which there are many. The release represented a real high point in the re-emergence of the genre in the UK, coinciding with Dolly Parton’s barnstorming performance at Glastonbury a few months earlier. Sheryl Crow’s opinion of the record is debatable however and this evening’s show only allows just the one track from the album. When she introduces Best of Times it’s accompanied by a quip about her mother being the only person who bought the record. Despite these personal reservations, the song produces the absolute highlight of a hugely entertaining evening, with Crow and co. going off script, delivering a rip roaring jam that culminates with the fifty-five year old writhing on the stage as she plays her harmonica...

[NEWS] Sheryl Crow Remember Gregg Allman (Rolling Stone)

 

Published on the Rolling Stone magazine
2 June 2017

Really one of my first big gigs and where I felt I belonged somewhere was on the H.O.R.D.E. tour in, I believe it was maybe 95 and it was us and the Allman Brothers and Big Head Todd and maybe Blues Traveler was on it maybe on and off again. I had grown up on the Allman Brothers. I mean that was just such a major sound of my childhood. I grew up with parents who listened to the Allman Brothers and they grew up on the Mississippi and that was our home kind of music, music that was blues-influenced and rock and roll and very Southern...
