The extraordinary pairing of Jim Campilongo and Steve Cardenas has been a rewarding one for the two guitarists, who have been performing in tandem for the past twenty years. Though they have recorded together before, the pair had never released an album of this grouping. The opportunity was seized when Campilongo was planning his return to the Bay Area, the pair realizing the project that was always simmering and needed to be put to a boil. The result is their fantastic new album, New Year.Campilongo moved to New York City from California in 2002, becoming enmeshed in the local rock and singer/songwriter scene, most notably with his own trio and as a member of The Little Willies with Norah Jones. It was around this time that he was introduced to Cardenas, through a mutual friend singer/songwriter Richard Julian. The two immediately connected and a fast friendship turned into a mutual admiration society from their first time playing together.
