In 1993, as part of the first-generation Bloodshot roster, Robbie fulks
helped us define “Alternative Country.” In 2013, after two decades playing
music everywhere from the taverns of southern Illinois to the honky tonks of
northern Norway, from Austin City Limits' soundstage to the historic Grand Ole
Opry, he reunited with us for the highly acclained Gone Away Backward.

Upland Stories continues and - with sprinklings of pedal steel, drums,
electric guitar, and keyboards - expands the sound of that acoustic set.

and powerful voice. It's a philosophically reflective album, written “with
clear eyes and a full heart” (Ken Tucker, NPR). Don't get us wrong, his wit
is still as quick as his picking, but it's reflected through the lens of
fatherhood, marriage, middle age, and the literary voices he is drawn to and
draws from. Accompanied by an incredible cast of players and produced by Steve
Albini, Robbie makes songs that offer more than verse-chorus-hook: These songs
have space, calmness, unresolved tensions and the hallmarks of lived
experience.

Twenty years ago, Robbie's exuberance for old-school country made a lot of
noise. Today, his storytelling through folk and bluegrass music on Upland
Stories delivers the quieter, sometimes unsettling truths of humanity
