Produced by Simpson, A Sailor’s Guide To Earth was written-beginning to end-as a letter to his first child who arrived during the summer of 2014 and features eight original songs as well as a rendition of Nirvana’s “In Bloom.” Recorded primarily at Nashville’s The Butcher Shoppe, Simpson was joined in the studio by Grammy Award-winning engineer David Ferguson (Johnny Cash, John Prine, “Cowboy” Jack Clement) and assistant engineer Sean Sullivan. Along with members of his touring band, the album features Dave Roe on bass, Dan Dugmore on steel guitar, Dougie Wilkinson on bagpipes, Garo Yellin and Arthur Cook on cello, Jonathan Dinklage and Whitney LaGrange on violin and special guests The Dap-Kings.
Tightly recorded by Steve Earle production cohort, Ray Kennedy, UNDER THE TABLE AND ABOVE THE SUN combines stinging guitars, irresistible melodies, ringing vocal harmonies, intoxicating instrumental interplay, stomping rock drums, magnetic lyrics and sing-a-along choruses.
