From Chad Elliott: I'm working on two new albums! The First, "RINGGOLD", has already been recorded. The Second, which hasn't been named, will be recorded in September at the famed Sun Studio in Memphis, TN.
About RINGGOLD: The "RINGGOLD" album has already been recorded and is awaiting funds to move into the production phase. It's an album that travels back to my roots, recorded in my grandparent's home in Lamoni, IA and co-produced with my guitarist, Tommy Lewis. I also brought in several friends to play on it from around Iowa. I am very proud of how it turned out!
About the Sun Studio Album: I will travel to Memphis to record this album in September at the famed Sun Studio, where greats such as Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley recorded. My band, The Redemptions, will head to Memphis with me to cut some live tracks for the album. Tommy Lewis, Jim Van Dorn and Joe Cafaro will all be a part of this project. It's sure to be a wild ride! I plan to release the album in the winter.
