Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams
Multi-instrumentalist-singer-songwriter Larry Campbell and singer-guitarist Teresa Williams’ acclaimed eponymous 2015 debut, released after seven years of playing in Levon Helm’s band – and frequent guesting with Phil Lesh, Little Feat, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, brought to the stage the crackling creative energy of a decades-long offstage union. A whirlwind of touring and promo followed, and when the dust cleared, the duo was ready to do it all again. Which brings us to Contraband Love, a riskier slice of Americana.
Larry, who produced Contraband Love, says, “I wanted this record to be a progression, bigger than the first one. That’s all I knew. I wanted the songwriting to be deeper, the arrangements more interesting, the performances more dynamic. Specifically how to get there, I didn’t know. I did know the songs were different. The subject matter was darker than anything else I’ve written.”
“More painful!” Teresa says, and laughs.
Lucy Kaplansky is an acclaimed singer-songwriter of rare talent, “a truly gifted performer with a
bag full of enchanting songs” (The New Yorker) and “the troubadour laureate of modern city
folk” (The Boston Globe). She has released eight critically acclaimed CDs, two of which were
awarded Best Pop Album of the year by the Association for Independent Music. National Public
Radio described her 2012 album “Reunion” as “a master class in making the personal universal,”
and her most recent album “Everyday Street” has been dubbed“ spare and luminous” and
Lucy was part of folk supergroup Cry Cry Cry with Dar Williams and Richard Shindell (which The
New Yorker dubbed “a collection of lovely harmonizing and pure emotion”). Their album was an
astonishing success in stores and on radio resulting in a national tour of sold-out concerts, as
well as a national sold-out reunion tour in 2018.
Her recording of Roxy Music's "More than This" has over 12 million streams on Spotify, and she
has been featured on NPR’s All Things Considered, Weekend Edition, and Morning Edition as
well as BBC Radio 2 and 4, and CBS Sunday Morning, and has sung harmony on albums by
Suzanne Vega, Bryan Ferry, Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin. Her song “Guilty as Sin” was
featured in the NBC television show “Ed,” and her vocals were featured in the Tom Cruise film
“The Firm.” She will be releasing her latest album, “Last Days of Summer,” written and recorded
during the pandemic, in Spring 2022.
