Tuneage Tuesday: Chuck Ragan
Starting out as the frontman for Hot Water Music, Chuck Ragan has taken the long road to get to where he is today. After the success and then decline of HWM, Chuck set out on a number of adventures including the creation of The Revival Tour, which featured many talented musicians like Brian Fallon of Gaslight Anthem, Ben Nichols of Lucero, Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! and many more, all playing together in a variety type show.
This collaboration over the last six years resulted in Chuck releasing his latest solo album Till Midnight with Revival Tour veterans Jon Gaunt and Joe Ginsberg, amongst others. Ben Nichols, Dave Hause (of The Loved Ones) and several others have guest vocals that drive the heavily acoustic sound across the album. The ten song record continues on from earlier Ragan solo albums meshed in with Revival Tour styling to put together a really good continuation and extension of Ragan's sound. Hear the track for "Something May Catch Fire" and be sure to check out the album.
