In September 2014, three songwriters met for the first time in a cafe in East Nashville. Two hours later the trio (Emily Barker, Amber Rubarth and Amy Speace) had written the song they called 'Applewood Road'.
They booked studio time at Nashville's super cool analogue studio Welcome To 1979 and the following week recorded the song live to tape with just double bass as accompaniment.
So excited were they by the song, they decided to expand the idea into a whole album. So, six months later, they reconvened in Nashville to write, rehearse and record twelve more songs with both the project and album called "Applewood Road".
The album has features guitarist Aaron Lee Tasjan, Fats Kaplin on accordion, Telisha Williams on upright bass, Jabe Beyer on harmonica and drummer Josh Day.
