Heard on All American Morning with Eric Scott
3/27/2012 (TheBoot.com) — Love and Theft members Eric Gunderson and Stephen Barker Liles are preparing for the release of their self-titled album on June 5. It’s the group’s second record, following 2009’s’World Wide Open,’ but it marks their first as a duo, with original member Brian Bandas having left the group in 2010.
“Stephen and I have always been on the same page as far as the vision for Love and Theft and what we want it to be,” Eric says. “We feel like we have made the record we’ve always wanted to make.”
The ACM Vocal Duo of the Year nominees found their sound with producer Josh Leo, who’s worked with Alabama and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. “We love performing,” Stephen explains. “The way we recorded our new album is the way our influences made records: live with a band. It’s a lot more organic.”
