Dave Matthews has teamed with Jakob Dylan and others for a new project called The Nauts, as Jambase points out. The lineup also features Bob Dylan guitarist Charlie Sexton, his brother Will, and drummer Brady Blade.
According to Mix, Matthews and Co. recently recorded new material at Brady’s Blade Studios in Shreveport, LA. A biography posted on Shreveport music website Unscene! includes additional details about their collaboration:
What started out as a fun project for Brady Blade to get some musicians together and jam—such as Dave Matthews, Jakob Dylan, Charlie Sexton and Will Sexton—has turned into a full-fledged band called The Nauts, and this newly formed group has been working on a forthcoming record. Blade, a rock/pop/country drummer, record producer, composer, and Blade Studios partner—along with Scott Crompton (executive producer and CEO) and mix engineer Chris Bell—is also a part of The Nauts, who recorded the new material in the Russ Berger-designed Studio A on a 48-channel SSL Duality SE. Other equipment of note includes Neve 1081 and API 512mic preamps; Universal Audio LA-2A compressors; and Telefunken 251, Mojave 300 and Royer R-122 mics. The Nauts produced the tracks, with Bell serving as engineer.
The Nauts are expected to make their live debut in Shreveport as part of the Unscene! concert series.
Matthews is also said to be working on a new album with Dave Matthews Band.
