Old Man Luedecke to Release new album plus tour dates

Old Man Luedecke Announces February 4 Release Of I Never Sang Before I Met You

I Never Sang Before I Met You contains three new songs  written by Old Man Luedecke; ”Sorry If I Let You Down”, “Time Alone” & “Baby, We’d Be Rich “ .   Joel Plaskett produced and plays a variety of instruments on the tracks which were recorded at Joel’s New Scotland Yard Studios in Dartmouth

When contemplating what to do with the new songs Luedecke felt the track “Baby We’d be Rich” needed a more JJ Cale vibe and started thinking of Plaskett’s production. “I had actually been dreaming of the use of Joel’s wondrous drum machine.” Says Luedecke. “Since it started popping up on his records and I had thoughts of him to produce the track for quite a long time, it just made sense.” Luedecke and Plaskett being both friends and fans of one another made the union much more comfortable and creative off the bat. “The broadened pallet, sensibility and attention to detail he brings as a producer was as thrilling as it was inspiring” Says Luedecke. “It’s a long way from the field recordings I admire so much but feels like a great stage of the journey.”

I Never Sang Before I Met You marks his first time collaborating with fellow east coast musician and artist Plaskett.”When Chris inquired about me producing a few tracks for him I couldn’t pass it up” says Plaskett. “There were certain sounds and ideas that Chris liked from my own records so he gave me a lot of room to run with it as a producer. You can hear my personality and playing on the tracks but at the heart of it all are his great melodies and lyrics.”

1.      Baby, We’d Be Rich
2.      Time Alone
3.      Sorry If I Let you Down
