Cow Punching With Colter Wall

Colter Wall new release

Colter Wall

Western Swing & Other Waltzes And Other Punchy Songs

Out August 20, 2020

A diminutive frame belies the rich and unique baritone voice of Colter Wall. Further, his tender age of twenty-four does not detract from his understanding and passion for the preservation of western music and way of life.

His new, self-produced album, Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs will be available from La Honda Records/Thirty Tigers on August 28. A ten-track ode continues the themes and topics familiar to us from his last album. (His Songs Of The Plains was our favourite release in 2018).

You can pre-order Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs here and listen to the album’s first track, “Western Swing & Waltzes” below. 

From the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada, Wall has sound-tracked movies such as Hell or High Water, Peanut Butter Falcon and Deadwood, as well as TV series Damnation and Run. His two full-length albums were Colter Wall and the aforementioned Songs Of The Plains.

With Western Swing & Waltzes, he decided to take the production reins making all the creative calls himself. Featured are his well-worn touring band, with Patrick Lyons (pedal steel, dobro, mandolin), Jake Groves (harmonica), Jason Simpson (bass) and Aaron Goodrich (drums). There’s also appearances by Emily Gimble on piano and Doug Moreland on fiddle.

About the album, Wall said, “These songs are punchier than I am.” Somehow, I’m not convinced. Wall is reportedly no slouch on the ranch and you just need to listen to his work to see how he packs a cow punch.
