We’re taking account of some of the amazing projects we’ve had the opportunity to work on in 2011 and high up on that list is Chris Castle’s ‘The Firelands’ EP. This collection of songs was recorded and produced here in New London, CT at Carl Franklin’s PWOP Studios and features Castle playing with his Drenched Earth tour mates the Womack Family Band as well as the Franklin Brothers, Sandy Allen, Raise the Rent, and other members of the New London musical community. The project is a teaser for the tour de force Castle has in his back pocket in the new full-length ‘Last Bird Home’ recorded at Levon Helm Studios and due to drop in the new year. In the meantime, we have ‘The Firelands’ EP to get us through. Enjoy!
