Roots grow deep in fertile soil. This theme runs through all ten songs of Uncle Ben's Remedy's newest release "Not Far From the Tree."
"Not Far From the Tree" will be released digitally worldwide on April 12 through iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon, Xbox Music, iheartradio, and several other digital streaming sites. Hailing from the upper fringes of Appalachia in Western New York, Uncle Ben's Remedy holds tight to the outlaw tradition of classic country while foot stomping through all the greatness that is Americana. Uncle Ben’s Remedy is Ben Westlund, singer and guitarist; Harmony Griffin, guitar, banjo and mandolin; Shawn Huestis, piano, accordion, fife, vocals and more; Brendan O’Connor, upright bass; and Jimmy Royce, drums and vocals. In this latest effort, these WNY hillbillies explore the delicious ills of moonshining, dive into the water holes of the mighty Cattaraugus Creek, and pull up stumps to warm themselves by the fire in the field. New listeners as well as fans of the band's first EP release "Yesterday's Clothes will surely find comfort in the back woods storytelling and instrumentation, while "Not Far From the Tree" expands on the band's formula with refreshing and unexpected space and depth.
