Read the Billboard Magazine interview with Denise Kaufman of Ace Of Cups announcing the new release.

Ace Of Cups, were at the epicenter of the ‘60s cultural and social revolution. From the Acid Tests to the protests, from the free concerts in Golden Gate Park to the ballrooms of San Francisco; they played with everyone from The Band to the Grateful Dead, and were highly regarded by their peers. The Ace were chosen to open for Jimi Hendrix, one week after his groundbreaking performance at The Monterey Pop Festival. When asked by Melody Maker magazine about his favorite musical discoveries on his U.S. tour, the Ace Of Cups were the first thing he mentioned.

“I heard some groovy sounds last time in the States, like this girl group, Ace Of Cups, who write their own songs and the lead guitarist is hell, really great.” -Jimi Hendrix, 1967

Despite being well-known for their exceptional songs and charismatic live performances, Ace Of Cups never made a record of their own, until now. When the opportunity arose to finally record their first proper album, the Ace leaped. With the enthusiastic support of High Moon Records, and the guidance of celebrated producer Dan Shea (Mariah Carey, Santana) and recording at Marin’s Laughing Tiger Studios, four of the band’s original members began exploring fifty years worth of exquisite songwriting and writing new material. As the word spread that a record was being made, old friends and allies began to come by the studio to offer support and musical contributions. In total, 36 songs were recorded during the sessions, and what had started out as a chance to set the record straight turned into a history-making second act.

Despite the number of songs and guests on the album and the range of material, there is a remarkable consistency born from the band’s deep personal and musical connection. Right from the start the Ace understood the art of the song, and that spirit remains true and close to everything they do. Ace Of Cups blends rock, pure folk, blues and gospel influences with a pop sensibility and a garage band rush; all tinted by an intoxicating psychedelic sheen.

Special guests include legendary players – and long-time friends of the band – Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, David Grisman, Charlie Musselwhite, Pete Sears, and Steve Kimock, as well as lead vocal turns by Bob Weir (“The Well”), Taj Mahal (“Life In Your Hands” and “Daydreamin”), Peter Coyote (“As the Rain”), and Buffy Sainte-Marie (“Pepper In The Pot”).
