Grammy nominated songwriter Rick Lang has released two new tracks as part of a ‘Dark Shadow Double,’ from his forthcoming album A Tale To Tell. Both “They Sawed Up A Storm” feat. Becky Buller on lead vocal and “Toodleoo” feat. Stephen Mougin on lead vocal are now available. An IBMA award-winning singer/songwriter, Lang is set to release his story driven album this Spring on Dark Shadow Recording. The project, produced, engineered and mixed by Mougin, will mark Lang’s seventh studio album.
Award-winning bluegrass artist Rick Faris has released the lead-off single from his forthcoming album, “Deep River.” Written by Faris and Mark “Brink” Brinkman and produced by Stephen Mougin of Dark Shadow Recording, “Deep River” marks the first release since Faris announced his departure from Special Consensus. Faris is currently wrapping up production on his sophomore album The Next Mountain due out this summer.
I am far from an “Ordinary Soul.” Life experiences have tainted me, quirky, dark humored, jaded and at times sassy verging on salty. (I’m proud of these characteristics. Who wants to be run of the mill?) After listening to Stephen “Mojo” Mougin’s 12-track album I can confidentiality state there is nothing ‘ordinary’ about his music. Its ‘soul’ is Americana at its finest with solid storytelling, clear vocals and instrumentals that range from rousing to consoling.
