About Hot Buttered Rum

Check out Hot Buttered Rum! ~ "Working Man" (Official Video):

Hot Buttered Rum lives for songs. Songs to sing in the shower. Songs to crank through your earbuds at the DMV. Songs to name your babies after, and then make more babies to. The band’s three songwriters — Aaron Redner, Nat Keefe and Erik Yates — spin tales about the good times, the bad times, and the roads in between, and belt them from the heart in three-part harmony. Bryan Horne’s athletic standup bass and Lucas Carlton’s tasteful percussion combine with the acoustic instruments to create what is California’s own acoustic music.

Hot Buttered Rum lives for a good time. The group’s onstage chemistry fuels the lovefest that is a live HBR show. A mindful recklessness settles in whenever these five guys step out of their front doors in northern California to entertain crowds from Anchorage to Miami.

Hot Buttered Rum’s years of touring have given the band the chance to work and play with a wide cross-section of musicians, people like Phil Lesh, Chris Thile, Brett Dennen, and Robert Earl Keen. Seasoned veteran Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), acoustic guru Mike Marshall, and left-coast rocker Tim Bluhm (Mother Hips, Nicki Bluhm) have all produced studio albums for the band. Each guided HBR towards the next step in its evolution. It’s a sound that’s as tough to describe as it is easy to love, and it has found its way to the most prestigious pop, folk, and bluegrass stages in the country: Telluride, Newport, Bonnaroo, Strawberry, Hardly Strictly, Kate Wolf, Horning’s Hideout, String Summit, Grey Fox, All Good, High Sierra, Wakarusa, and many more.

At the center of Hot Buttered Rum is the enduring camaraderie of five best friends. The band was conceived on a backpacking trip of high school and college buddies in the High Sierra. What was dreamed up on mountaintops and around campfires has found its way into the hearts, minds, and bodies of thousands.

About Lacy J Dalton:
As one of the most instantly recognizable voices in music- the woman People Magazine called “Country’s Bonnie Raitt,” Lacy J Dalton immediately caught the public’s ear with her soulful delivery and electrifying stage show and was voted Best New Female Artist in 1979 by the Academy of Country Music. She has since gone on to become a mainstay of the genre and her success has not only been powered by great recordings and collaborations with virtually every major name in the business, but also belied by a reputation as one of the few women who could successfully hang with acts like Hank Williams Jr, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Charlie Daniels.

Her hit records feature legendary million-airplay cuts: “Hard Times,” “Crazy Blue Eyes,” “Hillbilly Girl With The Blues,” “Takin’ It Easy,” “Everybody Makes Mistakes,” the worldwide hit, “Black Coffee;” and her signature song, “16th Avenue”, an anthem voted one of the Top 100 Country Songs ever by Billboard Magazine. She produced her first independent CD, The Last Wild Place, in 2004 and it went #1 on the World Country Independent Chart along with the single “Slip Away.” A year and a half later, the disc went #1 on the American Western Music Chart with “Slip Away” following as the top single. Continuing to tour regularly, she is presently recording two new CDs, Songs of the New West, a collection of outlaw country tunes; and another, entitled What Don’t Kill You Makes You Strong.
