  • $13.50


With Songs from the Deluge, honky-tonk supergroup Western Centuries brings country music home to its eclectic and unpretentious origins. Recorded and co-produced by acclaimed Cajun musician and Grammy-winning producer Joel Savoy at his Eunice, LA studio, this fresh set of songs spans psychedelia, boogie-woogie, and quixotic tales of love. The carefully honed sound is supported by the band’s signature literary approach to lyricism. Throughout the album's 12 songs, Western Centuries’ three songwriters (Ethan LawtonCahalen MorrisonJim Miller) traverse vastly differing geographies—the city, the Southwest, the metaphysical—and weave together a tapestry of Western music without sacrificing their hard-earned country dancehall sound. Indeed, Songs from the Deluge harmonizes three distinct songwriting voices into a sound that pulls from the great expanse of American music: Delta blues, Appalachian string band music, Texas fiddle traditions, cowboy songs. This record will levitate heavy hearts, turn spilled beer into ballads, and reclaim the multifaceted roots of country.
