"The guys in my band play with their eyes closed, like I do-I'm just in this other place," says Kevn Kinney with a rasp that's the texture of coarse sandpaper, the result of 18 years on the road. "You can tell when a band really means it. We get on stage and we just dig it." The longtime leader of Drivin' n' Cryin' and sometime solo artist is referring to bassist Bryan Howard (Slackdaddy), drummer Dave V. Johnson (Kathleen Turner Overdrive) and east coast guitar-slinger Gibb Droll (that's his given name, folks), who've joined Kinney in his new band, the Sun Tangled Angel Revival (S.T.A.R. for short). These veteran musicians, augmented by Joey Huffman on the Hammond B3, Widespread Panic bassist Dave Schools and pedal steel player Adam Musick (all of whom play with their eyes closed as well), have poured their hearts, souls and prodigious chops into Kevn Kinney's Sun Tangled Angel Revival, the band's debut album (coming Sept. 21 on Compadre Records). Present in spirit are friends and mentors Peter Buck (R.E.M.) and Lenny Kaye (the Patti Smith Group), who have acted as tour guides in Kinney's explorations into the musical past. The LP was produced by David Barbe (Drive-By Truckers, Son Volt, Sugar).
