The Saddle sprung to life in the Fall of 2009 when Kullen Fuchs, formerly of the Ian Moore Band, stepped out on his own to follow his dream of getting folks two-stepping. The line-up has now solidified as a 6 piece with many friends that share a love for Country Music from its Golden Era. We all dig Hank Williams and Patsy Cline, Buck Owens and George Jones, Waylon and Willie. The Saddle is unique in that just about everybody sings a song or two.

Whereas 2006 EP Don't Play to Lose wandered with a gentle ease, the group's debut full-length moves in more focused, if experimentally flourished, directions. "Lonestar" opens with a lilting warp and rough guitar distortion, Russell's playful drawl shading Lyle Lovett. McMeans' soft trill on "Canary" and "Stardust" lifts the album into airier climes that balance Russell's earthier tones, like Alison Krauss with a Texas twang, the best songs marrying the two vocal impulses in duet. Like the titular thoroughfare, the LP's merit lies in its peripheral surprises, Seth Gibbs' subtle, effects-laden production winding McMeans' Dobro through the pull of Sarah Stollak's fiddle on "Detained Dream" and spotlighting Kullen Fuchs' French horn on "Turn On the Shine."
We can play from 1-2 hours. We do about 80% covers with tunes by Hank Williams, George Jones, Patsy Cline, Buck Owens, Alan Jackson, George Straight, Willie Nelson.
