We hope that fans of American Roots Music and The Band, old and new, will enjoy our fresh take on this classic LP!
NASHVILLE, TN, August 30, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Co-producers John Heithaus and the multi-Grammy® winner Kevin McKendree revisit STAGE FRIGHT to reimagine the trendsetting LP by one of rock's most important bands. STAGE FRIGHT at 50 - An Ovation from Nashville features an eclectic ensemble of 16 musicians presenting inspired original performances by Americana veterans and Grammy® winning and nominated artists, along with exceptional young vocalists representing Nashville's next generation of emerging hitmakers.
Released in 1970, Stage Fright has since been widely credited as a primary founding authority in American roots music, merging rock, country and blues influences - and inspiring countless songwriters and musicians around the globe. Our Ovation endeavors to thoughtfully reimagine these 10 classic songs with stellar roots-influenced musical arrangements, complemented by our vocalists' fresh artistic interpretations of each song - thereby exploring a wide range of emotions that all humans share: peace, escape, introspection, frivolity and more.
With a renewed respect and admiration for Messrs. Danko, Helm, Hudson, Manuel, and Robertson, we're elated to present Stage Fright At 50 – An Ovation from Nashville.
The album will be available on all streaming platforms and, by physical CD and vinyl HERE. All social media can be found at @stagefrightovation and You Tube.
