Album artwork for Night Comes Falling by Carla Olson, Stephen McCarthy

Stephen McCarthy (Long Ryders, Jayhawks, Dream Syndicate) and Carla Olson (Textones, solo artist, producer) with their first-ever duet album. The two singers, songwriters and guitarists have lengthy careers that have intersected a few times, and Night Comes Falling brings them together again in exciting ways on this 11-song album of stirring and rocking Americana music.  Night Comes Falling comes on the heels of McCarthy and Olson’s two songs on the 2022 BMG multi-artist album Americana Railroad where they offered a new version of Stephen’s “Here Comes That Train Again” as well as Gene Clark’s “I Remember The Railroad.” Carl produced seven additional tracks on the album including those by Dave Alvin, Rocky Burnette, Robert Rex Waller Jr. and John York. Night Comes Falling is a testament to their individual and combined talents and was recorded at Robbie Krieger’s studio, Horse Latitudes, in Glendale, CA, It was produced by Carla, Stephen and Mikal Reid. The album’s musician credits are Stephen McCarthy (guitars, pedal steel guitar, mandolin, mellotron), Carla Olson (guitars), Paul Marshall (bass) and drummers Mitch Marine and Benjamin Lecourt. The album’s other players are Skip Edwards (keyboards, plus the string arrangement for “Long Way Back To Seventeen”), Jeff Lewis (flugelhorn on “Broken Lullaby”) and Jesse Owens Wells (fiddle on “I Remember The Railroad”).
