Steve Conte does a COVERS album? You betcha!
And Fall 2016 is the time to celebrate Conte’s new release "INTERNATIONAL COVER-UP” with select live shows in NYC & Europe.
The 8-song LP features songs written and/or recorded by Eddie Cochran, Willy/Mink DeVille, Tom Waits/Ramones, John Lennon, Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac and Jason And The Scorchers – all delivered with pure Conte-style.
“This album contains some of my favorite songs to play live - tunes that I covered on European tours with my band, The Crazy Truth International. I kept the album production sparse to showcase the band's live energy and all songs were recorded live, in a few takes. Most guitar solos were played live, a few tracks have a guitar overdub, one has horns, there's one with organ, and another with piano. There’s even a “one-take” vocal performance on there.”
INTERNATIONAL COVER-UP was largely recorded in The Netherlands; 6 studio recordings with Conte’s European version of The Crazy Truth - plus a pair of solo acoustic tracks recorded in New York City; one in his own Manhattan studio, The Joint NYC and the other recorded live on renowned record producer, Steve Lillywhite’s program for East Village Radio, The Lillywhite Sessions.”
The band tracks, with Conte on guitars/vocals and his foriegn cohorts, Jeroen Polderman on drums and Jozz Verheijen on bass, were previously only available as an “exclusive” during Conte’s 2013 Pledge Music campaign for his release, The Steve Conte NYC Album. The tracks have since been re-mastered and the running order re-sequenced to accommodate the acoustic tracks. The album has never been available on CD until now and only 500 copies were pressed!
INTERNATIONAL COVER-UP will be available on CD and on download cards at live shows!
(If you can’t make the gig, CDs and/or downloads will be available on CDbaby.com, Amazon.com, iTunes and all your favorite online retailers.)
