The first solo release by the Grateful Dead guitarist since 2000

"A moving group of tunes worthy of any campfire." — Entertainment Weekly, October 2016

Before he co-founded the Grateful Dead, Bob Weir spent a summer working and living on a ranch in Wyoming, sparking a lifelong fascination with the stories and songs of the American West. Blue Mountain, Weir's first solo album in more than 10 years, brings his musical journey full circle.

Working with producer Josh Kaufman, acclaimed songwriter Josh Ritter, guitarists Aaron and Bryce Dessner and bassist Scott Devendorf, Blue Mountain is a moody, highly textured modern interpretation of Weir's unforgettable experience.

"The Grateful Dead guitarist's first solo album in a decade is a set of 'cowboy songs' crafted with singer-songwriter Josh Ritter and indie-folk heavies like the National's Bryce and Aaron Dessner. Weir, who delivered most of the Dead's country covers, sings about 'plain-spun and rough' lives, 'cutpurse' evenings and unhappy trails, while a nimbus of electric guitars surrounds his acoustic bunkhouse strumming. The highlight is his self-penned and unaccompanied 'Ki-Yi Bossie,' in which 'a 12-step meeting under harsh fluorescent light' occasions a wry round of soul-searching, no wide-open spaces required." — Rolling Stone, September 2016
