    Nashville songwriter Andrew Combs and country-funk instrumental duo Steelism (Jeremy Fetzer, Spencer Cullum Jr.) have teamed up for a split 7" 45 r.p.m single on Electric Western/Coin Records, out on Oct. 29. The songs were recorded at East Nashville's Toy Box Studio, shortly after both acts performed at the 2013 Newport Folk Festival.

    Combs' "Emily" was co-written with Nashville songwriter Jabe Beyer and has become a crowd favorite. Steelism's "China Plate" (cockney rhyming slang for "mate") was inspired by Dick Dale's surf-rock and the western synth wizardry of Hugo Montenegro. Cullum's steel guitar was played with a sitar bar for an Eastern feel while Fetzer used three vintage Fender amps. Both songs were produced by Andrew Combs and Steelism and cut to 2" tape through the MCI console that lived in Criteria studio from 1968–’78 (where "Hotel California" was recorded).

    Includes unlimited streaming of Andrew Combs "Emily" / Steelism "China Plate" via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
