Travel songs band
Usually, a musical side project involves, say, a star guitarist jamming with some of his friends or maybe a front person taking up a duo act. But with the side project that is the Songs from the Road Band, a bunch of players from wildly successful groups have come together based on their love of bluegrass and their home of North Carolina - Charles Humphrey III (Steep Canyon Rangers), Andy Thorn (Leftover Salmon), Mark Schimick (Josh Daniels/Mark Schimick Project), Jon Stickley (Jon Stickley Trio), Sam Wharton, Phil Barker and Bobby Britt (Town Mountain), and Andrew Marlin (Mandolin Orange).
Humphrey first rounded folks up back in 2004 to record Songs from the Road, a collection of ditties he'd penned while touring with the Steep Canyon Rangers. Five years later, one became two, and the band added As the Crow Flies to their discography. Now, another six years after that, Traveling Show is set to become the third release from Songs from the Road Band. Humphrey's name appears in the byline of all the tunes, sometimes shared with co-writers like Shawn Camp, Jonathan Byrd, Phil Barker, Charlie Chamberlain, Mark Bumgarner, and Sam Gutheridge.
Steve Martin calls Traveling Show, "… a collection of exciting songs by some of the finest traveling musicians. And traveling musicians are the best musicians.” Humphrey and Byrd collaborated on the album's title track which features Marlin on lead vocals. Humphrey says of the cut, "The manner in which Andrew delivers the song allows the listener to appreciate the tune on levels more complex than just a band's history. The singer reflects forward and backward as he finds himself halfway through a musician's life of traveling the road."
