Dillon Vanders - For Peat's Sake

Dillon Vanders' musical roots are deeply steeped in Laurel Canyon-era classics; the Long Beach, California-based musician grew up on a regular diet of Simon & Garfunkel and Joni Mitchell, later expanding his musical horizons to include country superstars like Johnny Cash and Marty Robbins.

His new album, Wildfires was recorded at Robby Krieger's (the Doors) studio in Los Angeles and produced by Michael Dumas and Shayna Adler. Guitarist and pedal steel player Greg Leisz has worked with Jackson Browne, Beck, Lana Del Ray, and Bruce Springsteen, among others; drummer Mario Calire was the original drummer for The Wallflowers; and guitarist Al Bonhomme has played with Dwight Yoakam and Pete Anderson and has performed at the Gran Fondo. Dwight Yoakam's first five studio albums were engineered by Dumas, who has also worked with Roy Orbison, Sheryl Crow, Johnny Cash, and Robby Krieger. 

This is his new single, called For Peat's Sake, a very enjoyable track with the perfect sound for the genre and a great vocal performance by Dillon. Also, great guitars (check out the solo towards the end of the song) and very accurate backing vocals.
