Bob Thiele and the Forest Rangers Enlist Alison Mosshart for ‘Trying to Believe’
The new single from the 'Sons of Anarchy' music supervisor's band features the Kills singer
Though he’s penned tunes for Bonnie Raitt and Ray Charles, songwriter/composer Bob Thiele is best known to TV audiences as the music supervisor — and with his band the Forest Rangers, the occasional soundtracker — to FX motorcycle gang drama Sons of Anarchy. Now, the veteran has finally launched a solo career, with his upcoming debut LP (with the Rangers in tow), Land Ho! The album’s first track, “Trying to Believe” features a guest vocal from Kills/Dead Weather singer Alison Mosshart, and sounds like a song that could’ve easily scored a Sons misadventure, with crisp drums, searing guitar licks, and Mosshart’s peerless howl as she pleads, “Throw me out a little line / Show me some kind of sign.”
Listen to the track below, and check out Land Ho! on InGrooves this July 10.
