We caught our Austin360 Artist of the Month for May, Jeremy Nail, last weekend at Strange Brew as he celebrated the release of his new album “My Mountain” with a backing band that featured some of Austin’s most accomplished Americana instrumentalists.
Nail’s set comprised the entire record, in a different song sequence. Our Statesman video above combines abbreviated clips of the tracks “Heroes,” “My Mountain,” “Tell Me What Else You Got,” “Dreams” and “Survive.” The album, Nail told the crowd, “is about resilience. And we’re all resilient, no matter what hand we’re dealt.”
Joining him were violinist Eleanor Whitmore and guitarist Chris Masterson (members of Steve Earle’s band who also tour themselves as the Mastersons), plus drummer Chris Searles and bassist Bobby Daniel. They also backed Nail recently on a live version of “Survive” recorded in our Statesman studio.
