ORBO & The Longshots - Highway Tears from Prairie Sun, the group's 6th full-length album (but first released in the U.S. - Out Tuesday, May 22nd) was recorded at Prairie Sun Studios in Cotati, California. Prairie Sun Studios, which has hosted artists such as Paul McCartney, Neko Case, and Tom Waits, provided the perfect mix of vintage gear and a rural setting that added to the organic feel of the new record. The band was so pleased with their experience there that they named both a song-and then the entire album-after the studio.The record was produced by ORBO and Erick Jaskowiak (Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, Ralph Stanley and Del McCoury) and features special guests Delbert McClinton, Fats Kaplan (Buddy Miller, Waylon Jennings, Garth Brooks) and John Jorgenson (Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, Earl Scruggs).
The quintet takes its names from the initials of the group's charismatic founder, guitarist and frontman, Ole Reinert Berg-Olsen, and he is joined by Longshots Ine Tumyr (vocals, percussion), Reidar Opdal (piano, vocals) Paul Inge Vikingstad (bass) and Stian Tumyr (drums).
