Beloved Celtic rock band Rawlins Cross have announced the 1 December release of a new EP, “Rock Steady.” The first single from this six-song collection, “Hold You Tonight,” is now available, and you can preorder “Rock Steady” beginning this Friday (17 November).
Rawlins Cross burst onto the East Coast music scene more than 25 years ago with their album “A Turn of the Wheel,” and, through the years, has recorded a total of eight albums, toured extensively throughout Canada, the United States and Europe, resulting in two JUNO nominations and countless ECMA wins. With their fusion of Celtic traditional, rock and world music, Rawlins Cross never fail to electrify their faithful fans.
In 2008 Rawlins Cross reunited after a several year hiatus and released “Anthology,” a compilation of its best recorded songs. In Fall 2010, the band released “Heart Head Hands” (GroundSwell/Warner Music). This marked the band’s first full album release in 12 years. Around that time, the band performed for Queen Elizabeth II at a large outdoor event in Halifax.
Rawlins Cross, has, again, rekindled their magic with their six-track EP, “Rock Steady,” set for release December 1st, 2017 through GroundSwell Music. Rock Steady was co-produced by Jon Landry and Geoff Panting. This collection of new songs along with a string of successful festival performances, has added some spring to the step of this venerable East Coast act.
