COLONELS OF TRUTH
Rick Santos of the South Bay honky tonk heroes Longliner joined with Peter Dominguez, David Sands & Robert Scott Mueller of San Francisco’s cow punk outfit GEN 11 in an attempt to strip everything away and return to their roots. Brad Parker joined CoT on snare & brushes for most of 2014. With Brad's departure late in the year, The Colonels were extremely fortunate to add Ian Taylor Sutton on pedal steel guitar and percussion.
Their brand of Northern California Neo Bluegrass Anti Folk Urban Gospel Alt Country Americana was brought to Real Job Recording in Fremont, California for their 'live in studio' debut EP Songs of Love, Blood & Redemption in late 2013.
