Colter Wall

Songs Of The Plains

Colter Wall's sophomore album Songs Of The Plains.

A little over a year after dropping his self-titled debut, the country/folk up-and-comer Colter Wall pays tribute to his home country with his second album Songs of the Plains. The Steve Earle-inspired Canadian troubadour says it was important to him on this record to create a musical landscape that fits the physical one he grew up in. Wall recorded the album at RCA Studio A with Grammy Award-winning legendary producer Dave Cobb who also contributes acoustic guitar to the project. In addition to the seven original tracks on the album, Wall also included a handful of cowboy traditionals (“Night Herding Song” and “Tying Knots in the Devil’s Tail.”) and covers from some of his own musical icons including versions of Billy Don Burns’ “Wild Dogs,” and Wilf Carter’s “Calgary Round-Up”. Available on Standard Black Vinyl and Standard CD via Thirty Tigers.
