Stream the first single “Dreaming Out Loud” featuring Ivan Neville and Ruthie Foster here!

“Peace…Like A River is very ambitious from a musical arrangement standpoint in the way that a
lot of the songs take twists and turns that is not common in today’s pop music world. At the same time, it’s very much a song record and covers a lot of ground, stylisticallyspeaking. Song for song maybe my favorite one.”


Peace…Like A River was recorded during the same sessions as Heavy Load Blues at The
Power Station New England with co-producer John Paterno (Elvis Costello, Bonnie Raitt,
Los Lobos) alongside Warren Haynes.

One distinguishing difference on Peace…Like A River is the presence of talented friends in
important guest roles. Billy F Gibbons’ trademark vocals underscore the tasty ZZ Top textures
that inform the humor-infused “Shake Our Way Out,” while Billy Bob Thornton adds his
distinctive vocals to “The River Only Flows One Way.” For introductory track “Dreaming
Out Loud,” Haynes wanted a Sly and the Family Stone vocal style where different singers take
different sections of the song, so he called upon previous collaborators blues great Ruthie
Foster, whose backing vocals graced Mule’s 2006 album High & Mighty, and longtime friend,
New Orleans soul legend Ivan Neville. Lastly, rising soul artist Celisse adds her incredible
vocals to “Just Across The River.” Full track list is below.
