Jennings covers Zevon

Monday, October 9, 2023 – Shooter Jennings is celebrating the songs of Warren Zevon with "Shooter Jennings and the Werewolves of Los Angeles Do Zevon," a live album, dropping via BCR Media on Nov. 3.

Recorded in concert at Monterey, Cal's Rebels & Renegades Music Festival, today marks the premiere of an official live performance video for "Excitable Boy."

Shooter Jennings and the Werewolves of Los Angeles – which includes multi-instrumentalist Brian Whelan (Dwight Yoakam, Jim Lauderdale) alongside longtime Jennings collaborators drummer Jamie Douglass, bassist Ted Russell Kamp and guitarist John Schreffler – made their debut at the Rebels & Renegades Music Festival. The group also played during GRAMMY Week at the Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood, Cal.

"This last year, we had a blast doing two separate shows paying tribute to one of my favorite artists of all time, Los Angeles legend Warren Zevon," said Jennings. "When Zevon was picked to be potentially inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year we, along with millions of Zevon fans, were hoping that he would finally get his due in the halls of Rock & Roll History. Unfortunately, Zevon didn't make it in this year and won't be honored on Nov. 4, 2023, in New York City at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ceremony."

"Upon hearing this news, the Werewolves of Los Angeles gathered in our Wolfcave to discuss what we could do about it. We decided that even though Warren wasn't going into the Hall of Fame, we could take a special trip up to New York City that weekend and do our own celebration of Warren's bad-ass music."

Jennings and the Werewolves of London head east for their New York City debut, set for Nov. 11 at Brooklyn's Brooklyn Made.

The 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards saw Jennings receive his second career "Best Americana Album" for helping produce Brandi Carile's "In these Days."

CD review - Shooter Jennings And The Werewolves Of Los Angeles do Zevon Shooter Jennings' tribute album of Warren Zevon covers is clearly a labor of love. Zevon was a legendary Los Angeles singer/songwriter that somehow has been overlooked by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Jennings, though, has chosen to willfully focus his attention on this great artist's life work with this excellent overview. If you really need any more proof of Zevon's greatness, just give it a listen. The album was recorded live at the Monterey, Cal. "Rebels & ...
CD review - Shooter Shooter Jennings is the latest to link to Dave Cobb for production on the simply titled "Shooter." As one of today's leading outlaw country voices, Jennings is adept at marrying traditional country with fierce rock n' roll. When you're born into musical royalty, the bar is always set remarkably high, but Jennings has been a constant explorer, who has formed his own signature style. This time out, though, Jennings puts aside the eclecticism he is known for, deciding instead ...
CD review - Don't Wait Up (For George) Let's get one thing straight right off the bat. This is not a tribute album. For one thing there are only five songs on it. But it's not a tribute EP either. Only three of the five were ever recorded by Jones. Whatever you call it, this is the first of two recordings celebrating two very different musical icons. The second, due in January, will fete another George - Giorgio Moroder, an influential producer who worked with Donna Summer and paved the way for electronic dance music. ...
