Featuring the Wes Sharon-Produced Studio Album Glory Bound & the Cody Dickinson-Helmed Live Album Rattle The Hocks

Alyssa and Doug Graham have spent nearly their entire lives exploring music together. Friends since she was 7 and he was 9, they became a couple in their teens, then husband and wife. Somewhere along the way, they also became The Grahams, a dynamic Americana duo who've married their love of adventure with a desire to build on foundations laid by their musical predecessors. Their first song-crafting expedition, along the Mississippi's Great River Road, became their 2013 debut, Riverman's Daughter. For its follow-up, they rode the rails - and wound up recording not only a studio album, but a documentary and live album on the move and in venues from Sun Studio to Amtrak's famed City of New Orleans train.

Their new long-player, the explosive and aptly named Glory Bound, was helmed by Grammy nominated producer Wes Sharon (John Fullbright, Parker Millsap) at his 115 Recording studio in Norman, OK. Recording in Oklahoma holds special significance for a couple raised as Dylan-loving New York City suburban kids who spent weekends strumming campfire songs in the Adirondacks. Simultaneously, the band will be releasing Rattle the Hocks, a musical documentary focusing on the live recording, and the relationship between the railroad and American roots music. Both the film and album were directed and produced by Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars. 

The Grahams' songs for these projects, often co-written with collaborator-since-childhood Bryan McCann, capture the rhythms and energies of that transport system and the momentum of its time, with Doug's masterful resonator slide-work and harmonies fueling Alyssa's locomotive voice and acoustic guitar chords. Though the studio and live albums share many of the same songs, they're treated differently. Sharon brought in Fullbright, members of the Turnpike Troubadours and Flying Burrito Brothers vet Byron Berline to accompany the Grahams on various tunes. Dickinson lined up brother Luther; R.L. Burnside's son Duwayne; Otha Turner's granddaughter, Sharde Thomas; the Norman Sisters; Alvin Youngblood Hart; members of Memphis band Lucero; and many others. 

The result of these unique experiences is that both recordings embody a sound and spirit authentic to their respective environments. 2LP-set includes the studio album and live recordings as well as a download card of the full program (24 songs in all). The download also includes a link to view Rattle the Hocks, the film by Cody Dickinson.
