Americana outfit Great American Taxi has shuffled the deck in 2015 and added some new dynamic players to the fold.  Having gathered with Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth fiddle player and record producer) at Silo Sound Studios in Denver, CO in late 2014 and again in early 2015 to record a new album, the band is ready to reveal what’s next.  Core members Chad Staehly, Jim Lewin and Brian Adams find themselves joined by Arthur Lee Land on guitar, banjo and vocals as well as sharing some of the songwriting duties.  GAT invited drummer Duane Trucks (Hard Working Americans) to record on the album, he will also perform with the band on some dates in 2015.  Nate Barnes (Rose Hill Drive, Ryan Bingham) will join the band on drums for other shows.

Producer Tim Carbone recently had this to say about the new recording project - “The sound of the new line-up is pure gold Americana!  The songwriting is as sharp as ever and the boys are willing and able to experiment.  The guitar playing is mind blowing!” 

Taxi will maintain a light touring schedule until the release of the new album (due out later this year).  The first shows of 2015 will be in their home state of Colorado in June and then they will be heading to Alaska in August for SalmonFest in Ninilchik, AK and the Blueberry Festival at the beautiful Alyeska Resort in Girdwood, AK.
