Steve Earle to produce new Egge CD

Friday, July 30, 2010 – Singer-songwriter Ana Egge will record her seventh solo album with Steve Earle signed on to produce. Earle and Egge will head to Woodstock, N.Y. in the fall to record at the Levon Helm Studio.

"I thought of asking Steve based on the songs that I've been writing for this new album. They are mostly pretty stripped down, and I've been imagining them still being edgy in their feel or attack on the instruments," Egge said. "He produced my favorite records by my friends Ron Sexsmith and Lucinda Williams, so it just seemed right."

A few days after speaking with Earle, she dreamed they were recording at Levon Helm's studio in Woodstock.

The new album will follow up 2009's "Road To My Love." The disc will also be the sixth release for Parkinsong Records, an independent non-profit label, founded by the children of a Parkinson's disease sufferer that is dedicated to raising awareness for Parkinson's disease research.

Egge also is doing some touring. Tour dates are:

July 30 The Set Theatre Kilkenny, Ireland
July 31 Cork x Southwest Festival Skibbereen, Ireland
Aug. 2 Inishbofin Galway, Ireland
Aug. 7 Charherhouse School Surrey, UK
Aug. 8 Singleton Park Swansee, UK
Aug. 14 Center for Folk Music Encino, CA

Clark was a songwriter's songwriter, something many of the best Americana songwriters - including Earle - know well. ...
CD review - So You Wanna Be An Outlaw If Steve Earle had never done another album after "Guitar Town" and "Copperhead Road," he'd still have cemented his place in the musical firmament for skillfully creating a ragged and beautiful tapestry from the stray threads of rootsy rock and authentic country. And that may well be why his catalog over the past three decades has been so compelling and satisfying; he has consistently proven that he has nothing to prove. "So You Wannabe an Outlaw" is the latest ...
CD review - Terraplane In the Instagram era where people use apps to turn digital snapshots into sepia-toned portraits, Steve Earle's 16th studio release finds its place with an old-school sound. It's a Polaroid of rural country, blues and bluegrass frozen in time. But instead of outdated, it plays on the nostalgia of its modern audience. Named for the 1930s Hudson muscle car model, "Terraplane," the cover is a cacophony of vintage graphics hinting to the fun times that lie beneath. ...
