Take Canada's hottest fiddle player, a guitarist who evokes Tom Morello and Kevin Breit, a percussionist who grooves on sawblades as readily as he does cookie sheets mix together with one of the most versatile double bass players in Canada and you get New Country Rehab. With John Showman, James Robertson, Roman Tomé and Ben Whiteley, the band's unique outlaw indie country sound channels Hank Williams Sr. as much as Arcade Fire to create exciting new music. Their debut, self-titled album released in Canada in January, 2011 and recorded by Roots and Indie - Rock producer Chris Stringer (Obijou and Timber - Timbre) New Country Rehab highlights the group's original compositions and deep musical palette.
