Hot Tuna is back with Steady As She Goes, their first all-new studio album in 20 years! Founding members Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady masterfully blend Americana rock with blues and acoustic folk on a record that hits their full spectrum of styles from electric and acoustic Hot Tuna to their days in Jefferson Airplane. Reaching a zenith of their historic career, Steady As She Goes is an absolute masterpiece.
During their more than four decade long career Jorma and Jack have created some of the most significant music of our time and Steady As She Goes proves that they remain one of the most innovative bands in American music. Recorded at Levon Helm's studio and produced by Grammy-winning producer Larry Campbell, the album captures the energy of their live performances with Barry Mitterhoff on mandolin, drummer Skoota Warner (Cyndi Lauper, Matisyahu, Santana) as well as Campbell joining them on guitar, fiddle, organ and vocals.
With their amps turned up to eleven, Hot Tuna rips into the blistering opener "Angel of Darkness" and puts the wind in your sails with the 'hop on your Harley and take to the road' free-spirit jams like "Easy Now Revisited" and "A Little Faster." Steady As She Goes tastefully mixes in the acoustic side of Tuna with folk tunes like the moving "What Might Have Been" and the reflective "Second Chances." Along with masterful covers of the blues-rock infused "If This is Love" and a funky rendition of Reverend Gary Davis' "Children of Zion" Steady As She Goes is an iconic record that Hot Tuna fans have been waiting for!
