Winner of Americana Covers Contest Announced: Profane Sass's "Wayfaring Stranger"
Profane Sass's "Wayfaring Stranger" has been announced as the winner of Neil Young's Americana covers contest.
As luck and skill would have it, a medley of American and Canadian songsters by the name Profane Sass took it upon themselves to submit their gripping take on “Wayfaring Stranger” to the Invite, playing with such verve and spirit that Neil was moved to select that song as the bona fide Winner. We were fortunate to capture the band’s onscreen reaction upon being told that they’d gained Neil’s recognition in a big way. Having absorbed the good news, the members gathered themselves for a follow up interview. Read up on the story of each member finding their way into the band, how they keep their ecological footprint minimal, as well as the lengths they’re going to keep this association of musicians traveling strong.
Profane Sass: "Our advice to help all these struggling musicians out there would be to cut back on unnecessary expenses, dump any ego in the trash (and look for tasty food while you’re in there), don’t expect to get rich, love your art and play what you want and not what they want.
There is also a big difference between a hobby and a lifestyle, decide for yourself."
