Aug. 9 — Steep Canyon Rangers took audiences back to the mountains of North Carolina this week with its latest video.
The band debuted the video for its latest single, ‘Recommend Me‘ Monday. The song is the second single from the band’s forthcoming album, Morning Shift, which is scheduled for release Sept. 8 through Yep Roc Records. The band premiered the album’s lead single, ‘Hominy Valley‘ and its companion video in June.
As with the video for ‘Hominy Valley,’ the new single features the band recording its single at its recording studio at the Inn Bat Cave in Bat Cave, N.C. as the song plays over the visualization. The musical arrangement featured in the song exhibits comparison to a variety of acts and artists. The low, deep vocals alone conjure thoughts of Randy Travis. When those vocals are paired with the overall instrumentation, the whole lends itself to comparison to works from the likes of Reckless Kelly, Zac Brown Band, and even Bruce Springsteen.
Vocalist Graham Sharp talked about the song’s lyrical theme during a recent interview:
“My friend Wiley Cash wrote a wonderful book called When Ghosts Come Home,” Sharp said. “He sent me a copy of it and asked if there were any songs that I might find in the story. The father-daughter relationship struck me immediately.”
