Miko Marks will release her upcoming EP, Race Records, on Oct. 1. Ahead of the full release, Marks has released “Long As I Can See The Light,” written by John Fogerty and originally released by Creedence Clearwater.
The 6-song project was created to honor a few of country and Americana music’s pioneers, to whom Marks feels a deep connection. Included on the EP are tracks by The Monroe Brothers, Willie Nelson and The Carter Family, among others.
“I love the connection I feel between genres when I listen to these artists. Blues, Gospel, bluegrass, country, all of these styles were influencing each other early on, crossing racial and cultural divides the way music should,” Marks explains.
Race Records is named after the catch-all named for music by Black artists until the mid 1950s. Read more about the history of “Race records” here.
