THE OLD WINOS & FRIENDS (2020)
Canadian singer-songwriter, band leader and multi-instrumentalist Steve Goldberger, a former RCA recording artist with 70’s band Black Creek, has launched his 10th indie CD, through Shed Records.
Steve and his band of OLD WINOS present more “variations” of songs by some of his favourite songwriters. This album follows the route of his previous endeavours, crossing over from folk to country, Americana, and pop.
Back in 2012, the owner of the Old Winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake suggested that Steve along with his long time drummer Dave Norris and veteran guitarist Mike Glatt put together a Friday night residency band for his club. The concept was to have a “roots” based house band with different guests every week. Eight years later the shows are still going strong and the boys decided to get together in Steve’s studio to record some of the songs they play in the Friday night rambles.
For this project the trio put down the bed tracks and then over the next year or so, invited some of the regular Friday night guests to lend their talents to this record. It was a fun thing to do and the performances are stellar.
The album features one original song by Steve and the rest are covers of songs by some of Steve’ favourite songwriters including, Canadian songstress Katherine Wheatley, Dylan, Buddy Miller/Jim Lauderdale, the Bee Gees, Rodney Crowell/Johnny Cash, Steve Earle, John Hiatt and more.
The Old Winos and their special guests can always been seen at their weekly Friday Night Rambles at the Old Winery in
Niagara-on-the Lake, Ontario.
