WPA (Works Progress Administration
WPA (Works Progress Administration)stands out by virtue of its sophisticated, complex melodies and dense, almost organic arrangements
Some bands are so much better in the studio
than they are in concert . . . Other groups are
excellent live .
W.P.A. (Works Progress Administration) consists of some of
the most accomplished and legendary musicians in todays
American music scene. Founding members Glen Phillips (Toad
the Wet Sprocket), Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek), and Luke
Bulla (Jerry Douglas Band, Ricky Skaggs, Lyle Lovett) have
teamed up with long-time acclaimed producer Jim Scott (Wilco, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Rolling Stones). Once they entered Scotts studio, the group was able to collaborate and record the entire album plus a number of bonus tracks in only five days.
W.P.A. was born out of the musical community surrounding the legendary LA club, Largo. The full band is an octet, but the core trio will appear in Arden with 2 supporting players.
The instant classic Always Have My Love, penned and sung by Glen Phillips, starts the album with a powerful
dose of dual fiddles, pedal steel and piano, revealing the bands palette from the first bar. The album continues
with five more Phillips songs, plaintive and introspective tunes from Sean Watkins (Not Sure, Paralyzed and
Youre Already Gone), commanding vocals performed by Luke Bulla on Whos Gonna Cry For You and Remember Well,"
