"They make a menacing folk-blues noise filled with slide Dobro, Banjo and railway track drums and in Chantal Hill they have a singer who can break hearts and mend them again in an instant."

Those of you who have been following us on this adventure will know how emotional and special it is for us to finally see this day arrive.

From our travels to California recording tracks with producer Ian Brennan (whose work with folk legends Ramblin' Jack Elliot, Peter Case and Tinariwen have all garnered Grammy Awards) to finding them a good home under the hard working Clubhouse Records label here in the UK, it has been a long but wonderful, wonderful journey and we hope you will think, as we already do, that it has been very much worth it.

'Little Copper Still' is available on CD as well as digital download.

Below are some of the things people have already been saying about it:

"A very very good album"... "I love their sound"
Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

"The album is certainly going to be worth waiting for"
Mark Lamarr, BBC Radio 2

"An excellent album, ★★★★"
Country Music People magazine

"A thoroughly juicy selection serves as a splendid introduction to a band currently at the forefront of the UK's scene"
R2 Magazine (Rock'n'Reel)

"They're very clearly a class act; there are a whole raft of signed bands unfit to lick the shiny boots of The Cedars"
Performing Musician magazine

We cannot thank you enough for all your support and patience over this time but... thank you, thank you, thank you!

The 'Nebraska' Sessions

"The Cedars have one of the most readily identifiable sounds in UK Americana and they added their trademark change of pace towards the end of 'Used Cars'." ... "This was comfortably the gig of the year for me and will live long in the memory." - Americana UK

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Bruce Springsteen's 'Nebraska', Clubhouse Records gathered a group of musicians together and throughout the course of a single day, 10 bands recorded the album's 10 tracks live straight to 4 track cassette tape just like The Boss did back in the day.

The sessions were filmed and this is our contribution, "Used Cars", hope you enjoy it!

Other acts involved in this project included: Trevor Moss & Hannah Lou, The Dreaming Spires, Danny George Wilson (Danny and the Champs), Case Hardin, The Redlands Palomino Company, The Hi and Lo, Mad Staring Eyes, The Arlenes, Jack Day and Michele Stodart (The Magic Numbers).
