Gypsy folk duo Sugar Still releases their third studio album Go on March 1, 2017. The ten lusty, polished tracks were written and recorded during their 2016 US tour, each one as unique as the location where it was written. Since starting out in 2015, their cowriting has merged into “gypsy folk”: a marriage of Charlie Cheney’s roots-blues storytelling and Sarah Blick’s Classical upbringing with influences like Devil Makes Three (“Blushing Rose”), Stevie Wonder (“Tiny Turns”), Jefferson Airplane (“Charlotte”), Gillian Welch (“Anvils”) and more, all with ripping violin, percussive guitar, whiskey-soaked harmonies, and a signature confident vulnerability.
From Chicago to the length of the west coast to the Adirondack Mountains, the duo has hitched their ambition to a minivan and a kinetic love of travel. They’ve come a long way from meeting in a dive bar over a shot of Jameson and have no plans of stopping their perpetual tour since logging over 150 shows in 2016 alone. The 2017 tour to support this album starts in Taos, New Mexico on March 1st.
Go is a vulnerable snapshot of Sugar Still at a crossroads, transitioning between the road-tested acoustic duo sound and the new fully fleshed out band sound of Greg D’Alessio’s remixes. Blick and Cheney’s mission is to enrich performances with anecdotes collected from fans at shows, at their kitchen tables, and on the side of the highway. Go is a distilled travelogue filled with concise motivations for travel on each track, whether it’s for work, play, fear, or love. This album captures the emotional range of a red-blooded traveler, from sullen snowed-in complaints to luscious desire to the pivotal decision to stay or go.
