Tough Talk was recorded over the summer of 2012 at Scanhope Sound in Littleton, CO and engineered by Josh Fairman (New Mastersounds, Ivan Neville, Kinetix). The album features Joe Tatton of The New Mastersounds on organ, piano from Bill Mckay and pedal steel by Grammy-award-winner John Macy and The Black Swans on backup vocals. The album is a rich roller coaster of funk with super-sized helpings of rock, blues, soul and even alt-country.
“We’re really excited to return to some of our favorite places" frontman Jonathan “Skippy” Huvard says. "We’re very proud of our second album and think it really showcases where we are as a band and our live show is bringing an energy like we’ve never seen. We’re so excited to be hitting up places like Montana and Washington state again and especially for our fourth trip through the Southeast.”
Make no mistake, FSAS reeks of the roadhouses and West Texas honky-tonks of the Deep South that inspired their signature sound. The band features a pounding rhythm section, stellar lead guitar work and whiskey-soaked lead vocals.
If their opening slots on multiple national tours with funk legends The New Mastersounds are any indication, FSAS is a band that is poised to break through on the national scene at any moment. There’s a reason why artists like Papa Mali, Robert Randolph, Brian Jordan, Nigel Hall, Stanton Moore, Tony Hall, Corey Henry, The Motet, George Porter Jr., and others have sat in extensively with the band: musicians realize these guys have serious chops and the sound is some serious fun.
