Burnside Album Details
Robyn Ludwick, For So Long
For So Long was produced by world-class musician Danny Barnes chosen for his ability to combine elements of bluegrass, roots music, and old-time sounds with rock and roll to create a truly unique sound. This debut album features 13 original songs by Robyn, expertly backed by Barnes as well as Austin all-stars such as Jon Dee Graham on lap steel, drummer Mark Patterson (Billy Joe Shaver), bassist John Ludwick (Bruce Robison/Kelly Willis Band), and Rich Brotherton and Marty Muse (Robert Earl Keen Band) on mandolin and pedal steel. Contributing backing vocals on selected tracks are Bruce Robison, Kelly Willis, and Carol Young (The Green Cards). For So Long was recorded at Bruce Robison's Premium Sound Recorders studio in Austin, Texas. "The lyrics and storytelling of this album are mostly autobiographical while touching on themes such as life, love, and sorrow in American folk with a 'swig' of Texas country," sums up Ludwick about For So Long.
