Last month, Strand Of Oaks’ Timothy Showalter took to Twitter shortly after releasing the official music video for “Ruby” saying “this is by far one of the happiest songs I’ve ever written”. And by the grin on his face during much of last nights performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, it was clear to see the joyous memories come to life.
I’m sure it didn’t hurt having an all-star Americana-Folk group of friends behind him, including Jason Isbell (who is featured on the album), Amanda Shires, and Bo Koster and Tom Blankenship of My Morning Jacket who played a role in the creation of Strand Of Oaks’ forthcoming record Eraserland.
This morning, Showalter went back to twitter expressing his delight:
Hard to comprehend not only the talent but friendship of the wonderful group of people that joined last night on @colbertlateshow. If you see me smile on the video that’s because I was feeling about as good as I ever have.
Watch the complete performance below. Strand Of Oaks’ Eraserland is out on March 22 via Dead Oceans. Pre-order the album here.
