THE BUTCHER SHOPPE EP
Throughout their 2018 touring season, Della Mae invited special guests to join them - further supporting their mission as a band to showcase top female musicians in bluegrass and roots genres. Some performances have featured guests Alison Brown, Avril Smith, and Bonnie Paine (of Elephant Revival). During the 2018 festival season, they welcomed guest appearances from Sam Bush, Hawktail, Billy Strings, and others.
It has been a season of celebration, and felt important to them to capture the energy and camaraderie of this time period in recordings. In October 2018, Della Mae gathered at The Butcher Shoppe recording studio in Nashville TN. < add more history of the studio? >
They invited 3 guests to join them - original Della Mae guitarist Avril Smith, legendary banjo player Alison Brown, and rising star guitarist Molly Tuttle. In just two days, they laid down 6 tracks. Most parts were recorded while they performed together live in one the room, including simultaneous tracking of all lead vocals. Recording that way lends a feeling of being in the room with Della Mae, and captures the power of their genuine, authoritative musicianship.
The songs on The Butcher Shoppe EP are all “fan favorites” - played live frequently but never before recorded. In addition to those, they’ve added one brand new original instrumental composed by band founder Kimber Ludiker (fiddle).
