Old Time Hammer (from left to right): Jordan Johnson, Colin Sutherland and Elise Southwick
Engineer/producer Dan Workman finished production with blues/folk band Old Time Hammer at SugarHill Recording Studios (Houston) with Steve Christensen as recording and mixing engineer. Workman recorded 13 songs to be released on the band’s upcoming album, Gulf Coast Train.
Old Time Hammer comprises Colin Sutherland (5-string banjo, Dobro, lead and backup vocals), Elise Southwick (guitar, National steel guitar, 5-string banjo and lead vocals), Jordan Johnson (harmonica, washboard and backup vocals) and Scott Johnstone (upright bass).
Sutherland, describing the sound they tried to achieve on the album, says, “We were going for a sound that didn’t seem overproduced or too raw; we also wanted a pure and good documentation of the music.”
The band plans to release its album on CDBaby as soon as it’s finalized.
