Building on the foundation set forth by his previous critically-acclaimed release A Hundred White Lies, singer, songwriter and guitarist Shane Dwight once again calls upon the expertise of Grammy Award-winning producer Kevin McKendree for his Eclecto Groove Records debut. This House finds Dwight maintaining his blues-based roots, while also allowing for the influences of his current Nashville surroundings to seep into his music. Dwight is joined by special guest vocalist Bekka Bramlett (daughter of Delaney and Bonnie), along with a cast of Nashville's finest, including members of John Hiatt and Delbert McClinton's recording and touring bands.
