Back to Muhlenberg

Eastern Electric

Back to Muhlenberg marks the first new material released by Eastern Electric in several years. Penned by band leader, Nate Clendenen in the days following legendary songwriter John Prine’s passing, the song is a heartfelt cry to all those who are suffering, struggling, or lonesome in these trying times. Beginning as an undeniable lament, the song ends with an uplifting affirmation that in our shared personal separation from our friends and loved ones, from anyone, from even our own selves, that "...We are all together no matter how far."

Staging the "Steel Trio" for the first time, Nate is joined by Charlie Greenhalgh on upright bass and Joe Esham on the ensemble's namesake, pedal steel guitar - both of which are fellow members of his rock/country/blues band Eastern Electric. "Steel Trio - Alive at the Avalon" features a handpicked-handful of tracks from a performance at the Avalon Theater in Easton, MD right before the new year on December 29th, 2019.

The Avalon Theater has an amazing natural resonance and the room mix ended up being the master template for the recording, backed by a multi-tracked board feed. For this reason it feels very much like being in the room for the performance, complete with a few beer bottles and intimate crowd reactions.

Fun facts... 1. The night of this performance, Nate was solidly under the weather from a holiday bug, which of course made hitting his notes a much more challenging and at times painful feet. Although the vocal performance ended up solid, he spent extended amounts of time in between songs, telling stories and jokes... no doubt exacerbated by his choice of self-medicating with a certain Kentucky-made beverage. As Nate would tell you, he has never been able to properly... more credits released March 24, 2020
