Recorded during his previous performances at Red Rock Resort, Jeff Bridges & The Abiders’ new 14-track album Live was released in Sept. 2014 and features live recordings of songs from his debut album Be Here Soon, as well as his self-titled follow up, original music from the critically-acclaimed film “Crazy Heart” and some of Bridges’ favorite chosen covers of The Byrds, Tom Waits and Creedence Clearwater Revival. The album was produced and mixed by the band’s musical director Chris Pelonis and mastered by Kim Rosen (Franz Ferdinand, Dashboard Confessional) at Knack Mastering. Live is available for purchase in stores and online today.

Although previously releasing his debut album Be Here Soon in 2000, it was his portrayal of a grizzled former country music legend in the 2009 film “Crazy Heart,” an Academy Award-winning performance, that helped reignite his musical passions alongside collaborator, Academy Award and multiple Grammy Award-winning songwriter, musician and producer T Bone Burnett. Bridges’ 2011 self-titled album debuted at number 25 on the Billboard charts, while reaching number two on the Folk Albums, number five on the Top Rock Albums and number 10 on the Top Country Albums charts.
Over the years, Bridges’ musical endeavors have led him to perform at Neil Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit concert, on the charity-single remake of “We Are the World,” with his band on the “Today Show,” “Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” Austin City Limits, “Live with Regis & Kelly,” “The Colbert Report,” live sessions for Yahoo!, Sirius XM, AOL Music and shows throughout the country. The band has been performing live across the United States from clubs to theatres to the famed Stagecoach country music festival.
Bridges’ latest film work “The Giver” is currently in theaters, with his next project “Seventh Son” slated to be released in early 2015.
