Nell Robinson and Jim Nunally love the road, and they revel in the adventure of uncovering new corners of this old world that people call home.” – No Depression
BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA (April 18, 2017) — Following decades of success in their respective careers, Northern California musicians Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally Band will be touring nationwide this year with a brand new album, Baby Let’s Take the Long Way Home, dropping Friday (April 21).
The new video for the album’s title track is now available on Paste.com. It co-stars a gorgeous 1960 Chevy Impala. Nunally and Robinson co-wrote the song as a tour was winding down.
See the video.
Nunally, a two-time IBMA Award winner as a bluegrass guitarist, tells No Depression, “We were driving home from L.A. on our tour, talking about getting off the main road and taking the long way home. Then we actually did it and started thinking about all the great aspects of not staying on the highway and getting off the main road. It creates another journey by not being on the same route everyone else is going down.”
Robinson, a former nonprofit executive who is now following her musical dream, adds, “It’s about being in a different time in your life too. When you’re working, raising kids, or doing both at the same time, it’s all about efficiency. So, the idea of off the phone, not using the GPS, and maybe even getting lost – wouldn’t that be fun? The kids are doing all right and we’re old enough to feel secure with the meandering route.”
Friends since 2009, Robinson and Nunally teamed up for a number of projects before falling in love. For Baby Let’s Take the Long Way Home, they rustled up what became their dream team: pedal steel player Pete Grant (The Grateful Dead, Guy Clark), bass fiddle player Jim Kerwin (David Grisman, Red Allen), and percussionist Jon Arkin (Lee Konitz, Gene Perla).
Nell Robinson and Jim Nunally have appeared at Folk Alliance International, Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, PBS series Music Gone Public, Kate Wolf Music Festival, and Strawberry Music Festival.
Nell Robinson and Jim Nunally are available for interviews.
