Video: Sturgill Simpson “Life of Sin” – Live on Fallon

Sturgill Simpson performed a bluegrass version of his 2014 track ‘Life of Sin’ on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show earlier this week. Sturgill and his backing band delivered the song from the legendary Station Inn in Nashville, including a nice little solo from mandolin player Sierra Hull. “Lately things have been a little complicated,” Simpson bellowed as Hull provided backing harmony, “Quality of life has got me down/Sex is cheap and talk is overrated/And the boys and me still working on the sound.”

“His backing band”: That’s Scott Vestal, Stuart Duncan, Tim O’Brien, Sierra Hull and Mike Bub, all stellar performers in their own right.

You can hear and buy both volumes on Bandcamp now. A salve for the current madness.

Thanks for the clip. Great start to a day.
