The Steepwater Band enlists Marc Ford to produce next album The Steepwater Band

Chicago power trio The Steepwater Band will enter the studio for a new album with former Black Crowes guitarist Marc Ford:

The Steepwater Band and Marc Ford will enter the studio together in May to record the follow-up album to the band's 2006 effort, "Revelation Sunday." The band plans to release the album, tentatively titled "Grace & Melody," in late summer or early fall and tour the United States and Europe extensively to support the album's release.
The recording and production will take place at Compound Studio near Los Angeles.
Although the members of The Steepwater Band have long admired Ford's music and musicianship, they did not formally meet until the summer of 2007 when both were booked to perform at a festival in Spain. Band members, including Marc's son Elijah, jammed together onstage - a scene that was repeated when Ford's band toured through Chicago in July. The mutual admiration of each others' musical tastes and styles opened the door to working together in the studio.

A live DVD will be released March 21st. It contains footage of a show in Nashville recorded last November.
