Danish backing band and folk music pioneers The Sentimentals follow up their collaboration with Houston’s Matt Harlan on his dark folk milestone ” Bow and be Simple” with an album featuring hard touring songwriters Jonathan Byrd, Ana Egge, Sarah MacDougall, Sam Baker, Dana Cooper and Matt Harlan.
Six songs have been recorded on both sides of the Atlantic already. The album resonates the Sentimentals´ less is more-approach to backing a songwriter and features a bunch of brand new songs written by the participating artists. The recordings took place in the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, in Copenhagen, New York City and in Chapel Hill North Carolina.
The album will be released in the summer of 2013.
The Sentimentals have toured both America and Europe with American, Canadian, Danish and Swedish artists since 2004. They had a residency at Mojo blues bar for four years backing up songwriters from all over the world travelling through Denmark. The album they recorded with Matt Harlan last year entered the Euro Americana Chart as number one and they are working on releasing a live album together with Matt Harlan too.
