Dirt Floor - Wyoming Winds

Acclaimed band Dirt Floor from Nelson, B.C. will be releasing their third album Wyoming Winds on Thursday July  27th at 9am PST. With 2023 being the 10th Anniversary of the band, they are firmly entrenched as Roots/Country  regional favourites, still on the rise. 

The 7-track collection was recorded at Sincerity Sound Studio in Appledale, B.C. over the last couple of years and is  the follow up and companion piece to Dirt Floor's 2022 release, the monumental Rosie Blue.  "It's been such an incredible last couple of years" says multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Peter Reed. "With the  release of Rosie Blue there has been such a huge upswell of support which is very validating as artists. Our goal as  songwriters is to draw the audience into the nuances of our songwriting which is at the heart of the Dirt Floor sound".  "I think Wyoming Winds is our best album yet and shows off the versatility of the band and our take on contemporary  songwriting. It is really an album about relationships, loss and the search for understanding of the current emotional  climate in the world".  The album features the core Dirt Floor team of Sean Cameron, Peter Reed, Jesse Lee and Steve Brockley with guest  appearances and support from Alissa Arnason on Vocals, Matt Kelly on pedal steel (City and Colour) Geoff Hillhorst  on keys (The Deep Dark Woods) and local Kootenay horn hero Clinton Swanson.  The album swings between the deep groove of the opening track Front Porch Cookdown to the deep historical  ballads of the title track Wyoming Winds and Susannah and Earle. The songwriting talents of Cameron and Reed are  firmly on show as they cover the ground effortlessly dissecting subject matter that is accessible to all. The subject  matter focuses on relationships and our role in them.  The band will be premiering the album at StarBelly Jam Festival in Crawford Bay on July 29th and continuing the  release the following weekend at the Kaslo Jazz Etc. Festival where they will be playing the legendary Floating Stage  amongst the likes of The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Elephant Revival and Hiss Golden Messenger. The album will be available for purchase on Thursday July 27th at https://dirtfloor.bandcamp.com/
