Rick Lang has released his long awaited album, A Tale To Tell.
This captivating collection of story songs from Grammy nominated songwriter Rick Lang on his debut album with Dark Shadow Recording, is brought to life with the incredible vocal talents of Tim Stafford, Shannon Slaughter, Becky Buller, Trey Hensley, David Parmley, Stephen Mougin, Luke Munday, Kati Penn, Alan Bartram, Brandon Rickman, Jana Mougin, Rick Faris, and James Kee.
Really hope folks enjoy listening to this new collection of story songs, all of which are based on true stories and real life experiences. Stephen Mougin and I have been planning this album for years. He did a brilliant job overseeing and producing this new creative work. I’m eternally grateful to all the performers for sharing their talents and bringing these songs to life – Rick Lang.
Many years ago, when Rick Lang brought me this idea and a huge collection of his writing, I was immediately hooked. The opportunity to breathe life into these songs, curate a stable of known and lesser-known vocalists, and then release it on our DSR label was too much to resist. Rick and I share a New England heritage and this project features story-songs, most of them true, with a heavy emphasis on tales from that region. I’m proud of the album we’ve created and thankful to all of the amazing performers who helped bring “A Tale To Tell” from concept to reality. I think folks are going to really enjoy this peek back in time to the hardships, love, determination, and perseverance of past generations – Stephen Mougin, producer.
