Crooked Mandolin

My 2016 debut EP was recorded in analog at Tiny Telephone in San Francisco.  Nat Keefe from Hot Buttered Rum produced the album and Jacob Winik engineered our sound. We had some amazing talent helping out in the studio. Erik Yates, Bryan Horne, Nat Keefe & Zebulion Bowles from Hot Buttered Rum helped back most of the tracks. The T Sisters sang backups on Don't Come to Me and Sleepy Willow. The 2017 IBMA flatpicker of the year winner, Molly Tuttle, sang backups and picked some top-notch guitar on Road Signs and Never Loved Me. Also a treat to record a duet with my Dad, Jeff Ledson.

"You sound so awesome, Kyle Ledson! You're getting better so fast, it's totally freaky to the elderly, such as myself! It was such a pleasure to get to play with you."
