The Washboard Union – ‘What We’re Made Of’

The Washboard Union – ‘What We’re Made Of’ (Warner Music Canada): Less bluegrass, more crossover, the single serves as the title track to TWU's just-released 12-track sophomore album featuring their previous top 10 hit, “Shine”.

Their debut included the Top 10 hits “Maybe It’s the Moonshine” and “Shot of Glory” which became the band’s first certified gold record and set them up for a CCMA trophy in the Roots category last year.

As expected, the message is bright and uplifting, and ably spelt out in the accompanying video directed by Stefano Barberis from an original concept developed by The Washboard Union.  “The clip celebrates those little moments in our lives that make us who we are," the band offers by way of explanation, adding that "Our very identities are a culmination of every experience we go through and all those who surround us. That is ‘What we’re made of.’”
