Evan Charles is a man of many talents and many bands. However, it was one night alongside Jonas Wilson that he decided to make a record of his own songs, with his own unique take on Americana music. His album, The Long Ride Home, is the product of that meeting and it is a stunner.
Altamesa takes you across the desert and leaves you staring at the open sky. The music is delicate, steady and centered around Charles’ voice and strumming guitar. With a similar feel of a Ryan Adams, it still has its own flavor. And it seems like there’s only good news on the horizon as they have just started their second batch of recordings.
It was surely a treat to have Altamesa come by Studio 1A to share a few old and new tunes. Enjoy the tracks below, but also be sure to catch Altamesa on Friday, July 15th at Cactus Cafe or down in Marfa only July 28th for Viva Big Bend.
