Foo Fighters lead guitarist Chris Shiflett is to release his latest solo album, ‘West Coast Town’, on 14 April via SideOneDummy Records.
His third solo album, it once more sees Shiflett moving away from heavy rock for which he is best known to alt-country. ‘West Coast Town’ was recorded at the RCA studios in Nashville with Grammy award-winning producer Dave Cobb, who also plays acoustic guitar and percussion on the album.
The album also features Robby Turner (from Waylon Jennings and Chris Stapleton’s bands) on pedal steel, Chris Powell (from Brent Cobb and Jamey Johnson’s bands) on drums and percussion, Adam Gardner (of Southern Family) on bass and Michael Webb (also from Southern Family) on keyboards.
Shiflett said of the album:
“Getting out of town and working in Nashville with Cobb was the best thing I could have done and was one of my favourite recording experiences of my life. I spent a few months woodshedding my songs and got them as far as I could take them, but Dave took them even further, and his crew of musicians were a joy to work with. I can’t wait to take these tunes out on the road and play them live.”
