About New Twang Promotions
It all sorta started several decades ago with the purchase of 'Almost Blue' by Elvis Costello. Over the years the attachment to the twang-beat ebbed and flowed. There were good times with Lyle Lovett and Iris DeMent. Discovering Jerry Garcia's Old-Timey side was a revelation. But there are distractions a-plenty, and then the alt. country scene singularly failed to stop Dubbya, so it didn't always feel just right....
But now, older but not much wiser, the yearning is strong: for authentic acoustic adventures, for high-lonesome songs, for blazin' pickin' and strummin' and bowin'; for music with a flavour of the strong stuff that, with all the contradictions, the other side of the atlantic seems to keep on providin'.
So here we are. A newcomer to the scene with the serious intention to provide, for those with the inclination, some memorable adventures in the New Twang.
