"Damned Dynasty" is about the concept of God and how it can be twisted or corrupted. "How does it feel when you're only praised, cause no one wants to be the devil's slave." It was inspired by Aspen’s personal struggles with organized religion and faith. This latest single is part of a second recording project with Dominic Davis who not only produced her new songs but also played bass. He is a highly sought out producer and has worked with everyone from Greensky Bluegrass to Willie Nelson. He is best known as the longtime bassist for Jack White. Aspen and Dominic have been working together since meeting several years ago at the Wheatland Music Festival.
This new single was recorded at OmniSound Studios in Nashville with Chief Engineer Rory Rositas. OmniSound Studios has been one of Nashville’s top recording studios for over 35 years. Rory Rositas has worked with multiple gold and platinum musicians. Studio musicians for “Damned Dynasty” include Fred Eltringham (drums), Anthony da Costa (guitar), Dominic Davis (bass), Rachael Davis (background vocals) and Maya de Vitry (background vocals).
