Robert Randolph Performs For Paste
Robert Randolph and Steve Ray Ladson stopped by the Paste Studios in New York City for a performance on Wednesday afternoon. Randolph and Ladson sat for an interview and performed four songs, including two for their 2019 album Brighter Days.
The sacred steel guitarist started by speaking about the recent news Brighter Days was nominated for a 2020 Grammy in the Best Contemporary Blues Album. Robert and Steve Ray then performed Brighter Days track “Strange Train” and a cover of Blind Lemon Jefferson’s “Black Snake Moan.” The pair concluded the session with the instrumental “Joy Bells Ringing,” a discussion of working with producer Dave Cobb on Brighter Days and a stripped-down rendition of the album’s “Baptise Me.”
