Eric Rhame’s Timber and Steel Band is a secret portal that leads you to the fringes of Nashville, where the Opry leaves off and the thick, old heartbreak waits in the wings of a roadside honky-tonk. Drummer Greg Tiburzi and fiddle-player Steve Johnson join forces with John Erickson’s upright bass thumping to provide the backdrop for Eric Rhame’s original guitar/vocal story-songs. The music centers around the theme of “Elim Baxter” and his trove of songs, discovered in an attic, years after written, which prove to be as fresh and relevant as they were the day they were written.
