He would not be the last. Soon Oren attracted the attention of Ken Coomer, the drummer for Wilco
and a producer in Nashville. Together, the duo assembled a backing band featuring some of the city’s finest session musicians, including keyboard player Michael Webb (John Fogerty
), singer Maureen Murphy (Zac Brown Band
), and guitarists Sam Wilson (Sons Of Bill
) and Laur Joamets (Sturgill Simpson
). On Anthropocene
they provide stately backing for Oren’s songs, with drips of pedal steel and quivers of strings subtly reinforcing his observations about the state of the world.
