The Western Swing Authority (from the album Big Deal available as a self-release)
Bringing the music that has awarded them numerous accommodations in their native Canada and the United States, The Western Swing Authority juggle styles across decades as they make the world a safe place for swing band music in 2019. The dance floor set up by the songs of The Western Swing Authority pounds an inclusive beat when their recent release, Big Deal,slides into “Swingin’ from the Rafters”, offering to take a spin out of the sight of the sheriff and Sunday schooling. The Western Swing Authority welcomes fiddle legend Buddy Spicher on the Big Dealtitle track and gives a nod to the music they love, and the land they gave it birth, with “My Window Faces South”.
Friends stop be to make Big Deala little bigger with Ray Benson (Asleep at the Wheel) joining WSA to advise “Dance with Who Brung Ya” and Jane Monheit cruising with the band into “Mississippi” while Canadian Country singers Jason McCoy (“Extraordinary”) and George Canyon (“Big Balls in Cowtown”) lend a hand. Big Dealslows to a shuffle to tribute the past in “This Old Bar” while The Western Swing Authority twirl the spotlight to catch a solitary dancer spinning “In the Middle of the Song” and trot out a honky-tonk twang to color the exiting lovers of “After the Leavin’”.
