Accomplice One – New Album Announce

Hello Thrill Seekers!

Tommy Emmanuel here with an exciting announcement! After 2 years of work, my new album, Accomplice One, is coming out in January 2018. It’s been such an honor to work with some of the greatest artists I know, and some of the most inspiring people in music, today. I wanted to record an album of duets that could showcase my love of many styles, the challenge of rearranging some classic songs, and share the fun of total improvisation with players who do it on a level that we all marvel at!  I also wanted the chance to sing with some of my favorite voices too. 

 The artists who stepped forward to join me on this musical journey include Jason Isbell, Mark Knopfler, Rodney Crowell, Jerry Douglas, Amanda Shires, Ricky Skaggs, David Grisman, Bryan Sutton, Suzy Bogguss, Jorma Kaukonen, Jake Shimabukuro, J.D. Simo, Charlie Cushman, Clive Carroll, Pat Bergeson, Frank Vignola, Vinny Raniolo, and the great Jack Pearson. Together, we covered many musical songs and styles that are near and dear to my heart.

For me, recording is the same as playing live in front of an audience…I go for it as if it’s a show and my “accomplices” did the same. I sincerely hope you, the listener, will enjoy this album of real honest work brought to life by artists who reach for the stars and always bring something special to the music. Accomplice One was recorded and mixed by Brad Benge and mastered by Marc De Sisto. As the producer, I kept it real and kept it simple!

Thanks for listening, TE cgp
