NEW COUNTRY REHAB love it here. Spearheaded by lead singer and fiddle player John Showman, joined by bandmates Anthony da Costa on guitar, Ben Whiteley on double bass and Roman Tome on drums and backing vocals, the Toronto based collective is back for another extensive run across the US. With dates already in Nashville, Asheville, Raleigh and now at Grey Fox Bluegrass for the weekend, the band heads back out to Montpelier, Boston, Portland in the next two weeks. Luxury Motel, the second full record from New Country Rehab, has just been released in the US, and will be supported with touring thru September.
Maverick magazine’s Russell Hill describes the band’s sound as ”Successfully merging the old and new in a rambunctious way”and describes the band as having”their feet planted firmly on the ground, this Canadian band has the right intentions and there is to be no stopping them.” (March 2013)
Must hear songs from the album include “Luxury Motel”, “Lost Highway”, “Home To You” with a companion video, and “Lizzy Dying of a Broken He art”.
