Mountain Home, the sixth studio record from Austin, Texas-based songwriter Owen Temple, is a collection of 10 songs about eccentric characters living extraordinary lives in small towns and on the fringes of big cities. The characters are all on edge- on the verge of freedom, catastrophe, and hope- and the songs tell of strange happenings in rural landscapes both past and present. Recorded with producer Gabe Rhodes, the album has the feel of a live performance with stellar contributions from Charlie Sexton on bass and baritone guitar, Bukka Allen on keyboards, Tommy Spurlock on pedal steel, and drummer Rick Richards. The project includes songs written by Temple and co-writes with Adam Carroll, Scott Nolan, and Gordy Quist (of the Band of Heathens). Temple's love of folk, blues, and bluegrass shines through in the arrangements and the playing of his compadres. "I love traditional music- old songs that cross time and space to tell you what the people cared about," Temple says. "With my songs I'm trying to get down some of the stories of this place." _____________________________________ Produced by Gabriel Rhodes Recorded at Graceyland / Sunbird Studios, Austin, Texas OWEN TEMPLE - Vocals, Acoustic Guitar CHARLIE SEXTON - Baritone Guitar, Bass GABRIEL RHODES - Acoustic Guitar, Banjo, Dobro, Piano RICK RICHARDS - Drums, Percussion BRIAN STANDEFER - Cello BUKKA ALLEN - Piano, Organ, Accordion TOMMY SPURLOCK - Pedal Steel Guitar ADAM CARROLL - Harmonica GORDY QUIST - Harmony Vocals JAMIE WILSON - Harmony Vocals.
