Fine Tuning: Rod Melancon’s “Mad Talkin’ Man”
Filed under: Fine Tuning | Posted by:


Last October, we told you that L.A.’s Rod Melancon was heading back to Nashville to record with Dave Cobb, who has previously produced the likes of Jamey Johnson, George Jones and Shooter Jennings. We’re happy to announce that Rod’s first recording from that session has just dropped from the heavens, and it’s a muscular bad boy rocker featuring Jamey Johnson’s band — Jason “Rowdy” Cope (guitar), Brian Allen (bass), Chris Powell (drums) — plus producer Dave Cobb on acoustic guitar and Kristen Rogers on backing vocals.

“When I was 9 years old I had an Elvis cassette tape and a framed photo of him on my wall,” Rod recently told us. “Those songs brought something out of me. They made me feel like I was on fire! Thats the kind of music I wanna make, the kind that you feel deep down in your gut. Rock ‘n’ Roll the way it was when guys like Elvis roamed the earth.” Have a listen at this Soundcloud link, and check out Rod at next month’s South-by-Southwest, when he’ll be playing the Grand Ole Echo showcase and the Sin City showcase, both shows at Maria‚Äôs Taco Xpress, dates and times to be announced soon.
