Another Country With Ricky Ross
The Way Down Wanderers are currently touring the UK from Chicago. We recorded their first ever radio session which you can hear tomorrow night in a special live music double bill with Anthony D'Amato Music.

If you like The Avett Brothers or Old Crow Medicine Show we think you'll love these guys. Here's a preview of the session which you can hear in full tomorrow night at 9pm on BBC Radio Scotland. The Way Down Wanderers are back in Scotland for more dates next week.

Big friends of the Whitstable Sessions....watch this space,,,!birdsofchicago.bandcamp.com/album/american-flowers
We're so happy to have joined the Signature Sounds Recordings family! Our new EP, American Flowers, co-produced by Canada/Nashville's own Steve Dawson comes out November 17th. The title track is out today- if you pre-order American Flowers, you get the title track now (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), plus the complete album the moment it’s released. Kenneth Pattengale of The Milk Carton Kids guests in on lead acoustic guitar and harmony vocals on this track. Partial proceeds of the sale of American Flowers will benefit Teen Living Programs- a Southside Chicago non-profit building community, hope and opportunity for at risk homeless youth.
