Swamp Music Players (feat. Hilary Beckett) our tribute/cover to the great Lucinda Williams. Cover song of Lucinda Williams ‘Car Wheels on a Gravel Road‘ (Released November 1, 2022)
On Twitter we asked Lucinda Williams ( and management ) which song of hers we should learn, Lucinda put it to her twitter fans and the responses came in for the epic “Car Wheels On A Gravel Road”. Like freehand drawing a bunch of perfect circles , the simple perfection of the song psyched us out a bit….or maybe lots if you judge by the years that drifted by. Then the pandemic happened and shut us down for two years. Well……we never gave up…..and a radical change in approach by Evert Pater and the cover song finally clicked! With our parred down version with pedal steel and the vocals of Hilary Beckett recording in her very own kitchen much like in the song lyrics. You can be the judge of how well we did but we are finally happy with our tribute to Lucinda Williams and we had to be humble and accept what we could bring to the song. Love Lu !

Crowd Pleaser ⛽☢ country rock “retro futurism” by Swamp Music Players. https://ffm.to/oyal0dy Featuring and co-written by Virginia Americana artist Joseph Gearheart. The Swamp Music Players are an international collective of artists with a passion for swamp music and Cosmic Americana. ‘Crowd Pleaser’ is so retro it’s now! Special guest on backing vox, Hollywood’s “Sugar Parks”. Produced and mixed by Wynn Gogol. Mastered at 1 Ton Studio. Transistorized Southern Roots Rock with authentic plate-reverb, retro tech synth inspired by John Carpenter and customized effects.’Crowd Pleaser’ is a fun retro track of Swamp Rock and Cosmic Americana. The song was inspired bythe literature of Hunter S. Thompson and Philip K. Dick as well as mirroring of events between the 1970s and current day. The new cold war, the rise of populism and the cry for freedom. We live in interesting times.
