Album Notes
The Red Planet, improbably based in Atlanta and Switzerland, has released an album of unique original songs reflecting influences from a broad spectrum of roots music. When the Levee Breaks Through was recorded in Wales with engineer/producer Martin Levan and at Billy Gewin’s Cricket Cave Studio in Tucker, Georgia. John Cable, Billy Gewin and Stephen Ferron were joined on the recording by some of England’s most talented folk musicians, including standout fiddler Sam Sweeney (Bellowhead, Leveret, Eliza Carthy) and enigmatic Wales-based folksinger Julie Murphy. On the New World side of the Atlantic, John McEuen, John Cable’s former Nitty Gritty Dirt Band colleague (and current boss in the String Wizards) added some tasty banjo; brilliant multi-instrumentalist Marla Feeney played violin, viola, clarinet, flute, and piccolo.

The songs on When the Levee Breaks Through are characterized by smart lyrics, memorable melodies and creative arrangements. Stylistically, they range from the Hot Jazz-influenced title track to heart-wrenching ballads, Cajun and bluegrass songs, and old-school country rock, all performed with passion and finesse.
