Sending you a greeting from home

Hello Music Fans,

I’ve procrastinated posting over here long enough. I have musical stuff to tell you about while we all have time on our hands.

Before things got crazy a couple records I produced were just released. Nobody can go on tour right now but you can get their hot new records.

New Produced by Eric Ambel records from Spanking Charlene and the Emily Duff Band

Fabulous new records for Spanking Charlene and Emily Duff both recorded and mixed at Cowboy Technical Services. We’ve updated our website so check out when you have the chance.

I have been trying to use my time well. I started releasing the Shut In Singles Series on my page over at Bandcamp. So far I’ve released 4 titles and I have another 6 ready to go on the Eric Ambel Bandcamp page.

I also recently did a live streaming concert from my home for the folks at Americana Highways. It was a special show for me. I sang songs by some of the artists that I have been lucky enough to produce over the years like The Bottle Rockets, Blue Mountain, Greg Trooper, The Backsliders, Kelley Looney and Jimbo Mathus. The folks at Americana Highways archived the show for us all at Youtube.

I’ve also got some records and songs in the works from DL Marble, Colleen Mann, Mary Lee Kortes, Andrew Grimm and Sarah Borges.

I’m available for remote production, mixing and guitar overdubs. You can always reach me at info@ericambel.com

I hope you all are safe and healthy as you read this and I hope we’ll all be more tactilely together soon.

Let’s hear it for 2018

Was very happy to see so many of you this year out there on the road and sea doing gigs with Sarah Borges and on my own.

It was quite the year with records that I produced from The Bottle Rockets, Sarah Borges and Bourbon Express all being released on vinyl and digital.

2018 Produced by Eric “Roscoe” Ambel

Plus records I mixed by Finland’s super rocking Devil Dog Road and the fabulous Squirrel Nut Zippers.

I put out a CD of songs from my first 3 solo albums titled, oddly enough, The Roscoe Sampler and I also put pen to paper and made a Roscoe T-shirt designed from one of my favorite pieces of outboard gear, the Urie 1178 Stereo Compressor.

Urie only made the stereo version of the 1176 for one year and we have one at CTS

 

After doing a tour with both The Bottle Rockets and Sarah Borges celebrating their newly released records I got the chance to write my first song with the lovely Mary Lee Kortes called “Dreaming of Him” and we did it to commemorate her just released by BMG Books hardcover coffee table wonder titled “Dreaming of Dylan: 115 Dreams About Bob“.

I know you’ve got a lot of this stuff but if you’d like to make a special holiday gift purchase my able web-store elves will take $10 off any purchase of 3 or more items.

There’s some good stuff coming up in 2019 too.

I’ve completed producing a record for Girls On Grass titled “Dirty Power” that should be out this spring.  Also put the finishing touches on the first solo record by Nate Schweber titled “Gaps In My Resume” which was mixed at Evie’s Terrace and I’m doing the last day of mixing on the upcoming Spanking Charlene release next week.

Keep your eye on the gigs page as I play pretty often with my own band, Sarah Borges, Mark McKay and Spanking Charlene

And don’t forget my Christmas songs from Solo Sounds.

And a funky home video I made too.
