Boyer & Talton's Live At The NuttHouse out now!
Scott Boyer and Tommy Talton's new album Live At The NuttHouse was recorded last September in front of an enthusiastic live audience at Muscle Shoals' NuttHouse Recording Studio. Produced by Andreas Werner and recorded by Grammy winning engineer Jimmy Nutt, the disc features acoustic and stripped down versions of Boyer and Talton's Cowboy classics along a few other gems from their rich catalog. On the recording, Boyer and Talton are joined by Muscle Shoals keyboardist NC Thurman (Tony Joe White, Decoys). The album cover was created by Scott Campbell who is best known for his design work for Hard Rock Cafe.
Boyer and Talton were the masterminds behind the legendary band Cowboy. Cowboy released a handful of classic albums on Capricorn Records in the 1970s that became part of the soundtrack of the era and influenced a generation of musicians.
They also backed artists like Gregg Allman, Arthur Conley, Percy Sledge and Kitty Wells live and in the studio. Duane Allman played dobro on Cowboy's "Please Be With Me" and their songs got covered by Eric Clapton, Gregg Allman, Levon Helm, Jimmy Hall, Randy Meisner of the Eagles, Bonnie Bramlett and Martina McBride.
Boyer and Talton both found individual success after disbanding Cowboy. Scott Boyer is the front man of legendary Muscle Shoals band the Decoys as well as an in demand songwriter and session musician. Boyer's most recent album OK, How About This? was a collaboration with keyboardist NC Thurman. Tommy Talton has been touring the world with his own band and released several solo albums included his latest, Until After Then. They will team up for a rare reunion tour this coming June to promote the release of the new album (NC Thurman will complete the trio lineup).
