American Songwriter Premiers Riley Etheridge, Jr's New Single and Video
Southern bred and now NY-based Riley Etheridge, Jr. is thrilled to partner with revered music journal AMERICAN SONGWRITER to premiere the video for his new single "Another Time, Another Place," which features a haunting vocal duet with Sara Watkins of Nickel Creek. The track perfectly blends the heartache of a love affair that for a myriad of reasons cannot be fulfilled, and the longing of what could have been if only the timing were right. A universal theme no doubt, but in Riley's talented hands sounds both heartbreakingly honest - yet hopeful - that someday....
Guest musician, and roots rock icon, drummer Jim Keltner summed up the album perfectly when he described it as sounding like, "Steely Dan lost on a bender over a long weekend in New Orleans."
In addition to the honor of being selected to join hero and rock 'n' roll legend LEON RUSSELL on tour this April, Riley had his album, The Straight and Narrow Way, tapped by the caffeinated tastemakers at Starbucks Coffee House to be added into heavy in-store rotation. The single has also been chosen for the current installment of Crate & Barrel "Get The Download" offer. His song "Another Time, Another Place," is available via free download from Crate & Barrel; the offer will be presented on in-store cards later this spring (while supplies last) as well as online at the Crate & Barrel website and in Crate & Barrel catalogs. The promotion runs through June of this year.
The Straight And Narrow Way was born from freewheeling recording sessions in Los Angeles, Nashville, and New Orleans. Its loose and vibey feel is a testament to the folks Etheridge had the good taste to invite to the party. The album features impressive collaborators, special guests such as: the aforementioned Watkins, Joe Sample vocalist Erica Falls, former Allman Brother Johnny Neel, Dan Dugmore (Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor), and legendary drummer Jim Keltner (Traveling Wilburys, Bob Dylan, Elvis, John Lennon).
