House Of Orange, The
In 2015, Richard travelled to the U.S. to record a new album with acclaimed producer Mark Moffatt. This had come to fruition after a few years of Moffatt urging Clapton to get over to Nashville and record with the finest musicians available. Moffatt (originally from Queensland) had by this stage been living in Nashville for over twenty years and had become an integral part of Americana Musicfest (held in Nashville every year).
The idea behind the album was to carefully select twelve songs – whether old or new – from Clapton's vast catalogue, which would fit neatly into the "Americana" genre. The result is an album which many have wanted Clapton to make for a long time.
It is simply some of the best songs he has written – old and new – recorded with some of the best musicians in Music City. The album features the legendary Dan Dugmore (longtime guitarist with Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, Stevie Nicks and so many others), and David La Bruyere from John Mayer's band, along with a band of Nashville's finest.
