Click HERE to read a short interview I did with USA Today about this song and the Crooked River Burning EP which comes out this Tuesday March 25th. The video features Mark Stepro on drums and backing vocals and Andy Hess on the bass. It was filmed live in New York City in January of 2014.

The Great Scott Asheton

I received word today from my friend and band mate, BP Fallon that the great Scott Asheton passed away last night. Scott was a wonderful man, so full of life and dedicated to his music and family. I was fortunate to play and record with Scott and can testify to the fact that he was truly inspiring to be around. Thanks Scott…

Crooked River Burning Review

From Garret Woodward at Smoky Mountain News:

••Aaron Lee Tasjan — Crooked River Burning••
The Nashville troubadour is making a much-needed splash up and down the East Coast with his acoustic numbers layered atop a rich rock-n-roll foundation. Tasjan’s words are soaked in spilled whiskey, misunderstood tears and dusty memories. Each number seeps into the cracks of your troubled soul, where names like Paul Simon and James McMurtry come to mind when trying to nail down this record.

Key Tracks: “Don’t Walk Away,” “Drugs and Junk Food,” “Number One”
