In town to play the United States of Americana's fifth birthday bash, Israel Nash and company stopped by The Current to perform in our studio and to chat with host Bill DeVille before their gig at the Turf Club.
Israel Nash and his band Joey McClellan, guitar; Eric Swanson, pedal steel guitar; Aaron McClellan, bass; Josh Fleischmann, drums got up and left New York City for Dripping Springs, TX back in 2011 where they recorded Nash's latest album, Rain Plans. Even sound engineer Ted Young lugged his 16-track analog tape machine halfway across the country to record the album in Israel's Texas home.
Rain Plans was recorded just over two years ago and released in September of 2013. Israel and his band are itching to write another album, and have plans to record in the spring.
Listen to the full in-studio session to hear Israel Nash chat with host Bill DeVille about what musician is a touchstone for Nash and his band, about the Dutch artist responsible for Rain Plans' stunning album art and about his handmade leather boots that resemble those of Robert Plant.
"Woman at the Well"
