Since the very inception of Artie Hemphill and The Iron Horse Band, our eager and devoted fans have clamored for us to cut an album. Well, the wait is finally over. We are pleased to present to you, for your listening enjoyment, Artie Hemphill and The Iron Horse Band 'LIVE'. Why a live album? Well, when you break it all down, three things are certain; we love playing music, we love our fans and we love getting out there in person and being able to share our music with them! After all, it's through experiencing our live shows that most of our loyal followers became fans in the first place. So we couldn't think of a better way to thank those of you who love to come out and "get down" with us, than to capture a live show and let you take it home with you. Now the fun can continue long after the stage lights go out! As we begin the process of preparing to record a full length studio album packed with great original music, we just couldn't pass up the chance to lasso some of our favorite gig tunes and put them on an album for all of our dedicated fans to enjoy. The tracks for this project were recorded live at an AHIHB show performed in Daniel, Utah for the Bill White Restaurant Group on October 2, 2010. Special thanks goes out to Trevor Young (live sound engineer extraordinaire) for manning the controls and providing the needed equipment which allowed us to capture these tracks. And, of course, copious amounts of praise must be heaped upon our brilliant producer, the very talented Drew Williams, without whom this project could never have been realized. With fearless determination, Drew took a raw and snarling beast into the lair at his very own Sapphire Studios, and emerged with a tamed, trained and very likable little pet. Drew, you ROCK! Andrew Lancaster, thank you for letting us tap into your energy and for being there when we needed you. Thank you April Hemphill for always making sure the band looks sharp on stage and for all the legwork you've invested so that this album could be released in a timely manner. And a big shout out goes to our great friend Danny Bates who penned the beautiful bonus track, "I'll Be". Big D, you've got the gift! We also wanted to sincerely thank our families who have unceasingly supported us in our hopes and dreams, even when it meant they had to see a little less of us as a result. And ultimately, we want to thank our Heavenly Father for blessing us with our musical talents, and for allowing us to share them with those around us that all might have joy. This album was recorded for you! It's a tasty, feel-good, toe tapping, drive down the road with the windows rolled down singing along at the top of your lungs while trying to avoid the deer that just jumped out in front of you kind of record. We hope that you'll have as much fun listening to it as we had making it! ------------------------------------------------------------------- Artie Hemphill - Lead Vocals / Rhythm Guitar Mike Fjerstad - Lead Guitar / Backup Vocals Drew Williams - Keyboards / Piano / Backup Vocals Dave Thurman - Bass Guitar / Backup Vocals Ryan Flores - Drums.
