The Lost Ark Studio presents "On The Road" by Old Salt Union, the latest single from the Lost Ark Studio Compilation - Vol. 09. Enjoy!

Old Salt Union are a new generation of bluegrass, influenced by the bluegrass roots of The Del McCoury Band and Sam Bush, but also drawing inspiration from Bill Evans, Danny Elfman, Punch Brothers, and many more talented musicians. What makes Old Salt Union special is their ability to stretch the boundaries of traditional bluegrass music by incorporating in-depth musical arrangements, a catchy hook, and an uncanny pop sensibility.


Old Salt Union - On The Road

The midnight oil burns in waves of infrared.
A girl carving Kerouac in wooden table legs.
And outside the weather became you and flung the gate.
Your interesting timing has kept me here awake.
Just beyond the breeze.
So much left to see.
It's worth a life to leave.

We chased the desert sun and settled for the coast.
Still we found our younger years are gone and missed the most.
And all around the burning wood there’s tales of woe and shame.
In the middle of the night I'm reminded why I came.
Just beyond the breeze.
So much left to see.
It's worth a life to leave.

Live a thousand lives, it still takes your breath.
Never mind your prime, and learn to love the rest.
You're stuck inside this paradigm you'll see,
You're free.
