When I first heard (okay, watched via YouTube) the Steel Wheels covering Tom Waits, I fervently hoped for a studio version of “Walk Away” to appear on a future album. I felt (and still do) that the guys did a fine job of honoring the original work while lending their own spin to the song. So I was delighted when I found out “Walk Away” will appear on the band’s upcoming release No More Rain (out April 16). This particular clip was recorded live at Ignition Garage in Indiana.
With nominations in the Independent Music Awards for Best Americana Album (for Lay Down, Lay Low) and Best A Cappella Song (for “Rain in the Valley”) and the Red Wing Roots Music Festival in July of 2013 looks like it’s shaping up as another great year for a truly deserving group.
