Courtesy of Leftover Salmon Ain't nothing canned about Leftover Salmon's jams.
Though Leftover Salmon has been making music for the better part of 25 years, it took a six-pack of beer to inspire the band's latest album. However, not in the typical sense of drinking one in the search for ideas. Instead, Colorado's Breckenridge Brewery tapped the band for a quartet of songs to be included as downloads with special six-packs.
"This is how the whole process started," Leftover Salmon guitarist/mandolinist and founder Drew Emmitt says from his home in Crested Butte, Colorado. "We weren't even sure there was going to be a whole record, but we went and recorded some more stuff. Suddenly, we had a whole record."
One track, composed by guitarist Vince Herman, proved more than fitting: "Finish Your Beer," a call-out to slackers leaving partially finished cans behind.More »
