193 - Hunting Antlers In Velvet With Leon III

Andy Stepanian from Leon III (that's pronounced Leon the 3rd) is our guest on No Simple Road this week! Andy and his Wrinkle Neck Mules bandmate Mason Brent have created something miraculous with the new album 'Antlers In Velvet'. The two left Nashville for Stinson Beach, California and Beech House Studios and created an album that is a textured pool of psychedelic wonderment, filled with deep grooves, haunting shadows, and vibrating rhythms that tickle that corner of the brain that so rarely gets its fix. It's very easy to see that this is one of the NSR crew's new favorites so we were super stoked to talk with Andy about departing from playing bluegrass with Wrinkle Neck Mules, what his intention was in creating the new album, how he feels about the re-emerging music scene, our similar musical history, the legacy of the Grateful Dead and their influence on his musical style, and so much more!
