Biography

Cabin Fever is the seventh studio album by Corb Lund. Available worldwide from New West Records. This is Corb’s second album to be released in the United States. Said to be “a different sound.”

Losin’ Lately Gambler, is the 6th album from Corb Lund, Alberta’s acclaimed, alternative country star.
Produced by the noted Nashville drummer and vocalist Harry Stinson (of Marty Stuart’s Fabulous Superlatives), this is Lund’s first album on his new record label New West Records.

Lund’s latest series of songs on Losin’ Lately Gambler, features a gallery of subjects drawn from real life.

He says, “A lot of my ancestors pop into the songs. I’ve got quite a cast of characters to draw from. I feel a real kinship with the old West. A lot of my ancestors were ranchers, but one of my great-grandpas was a road gambler in Montana in the 1880s. I’ve got some miners in there. My grandpas in particular were full of lore – they had lots of stories.”

Lund’s great-grandfather may be the model for the hard-luck gambler of the new album’s “A Game in Town Like This.” His own rodeo experience animates “Steer Rider’s Blues.” And Lund’s father, a veterinarian, likely served as the inspiration of “Horse Doctor, Come Quick” and “Talkin’ Veterinarian Blues.” Some characters, like the deadly female gunslinger of “Devil’s Best Dress,” hail from Western folklore, while others – the busted-out rancher of “Long Gone to Saskatchewan,” the farmer displaced by oil drillers in “This is My Prairie” – spin stories torn from the daily papers.

    I keep hearing Staan Roger's Idiot behind I Wanna Be In The Cavalry. Probably the same Morris Dancer beat. Also definitely hear the Ian Tyson influences.

    i was singing along to every song at the show i went to on march 2nd, and i think everyone was looking at me funny...probably because I even knew all the words to all the hard ones like Expectation and the Blues, All I Wanna Do Is Play Cards, and Apocalyptic Modified Blues
