Rusty Truck


Rusty Truck founder and frontman Mark Seliger was born in Amarillo, TX and now resides in New York City. Before Seliger’s musical career began, however, he established himself as a world-renowned photographer. Today Seliger owns a studio in New York City’s West Village and is currently under contract with Condé Nast Publications, shooting for Vanity Fair and GQ. Previously, he was the Chief Photographer for Rolling Stone from 1992 to 2002. While working with Rolling Stone, Seliger shot numerous top names in music, many with whom he developed lasting friendships. It was during that period Seliger also began writing his own music. Jakob Dylan heard Seliger’s material and was impressed enough to invite him to his studio to record and write. “Jakob took the time to show me the ropes in a recording studio and produced a demo of Never Going Back.’ After that, I was hooked.” When renowned keyboardist Rami Jaffee invited Seliger to play at one of his big jam shows in LA, he jumped at the chance. Jaffee (The Wallflowers, Foo Fighters) rounded up a group of Los Angeles-based musicians to join Seliger and these players ultimately became Rusty Truck. In addition to Seliger, Rusty Truck consists of drummer Joey Peters (Grant Lee Buffalo), guitarist Michael Duff (best known for his melodic playing style with Chalk Farm), Nashville-based dobro and lap-steeler Andy Gibson (Hank Williams III), and bassist Sheldon Gomberg (Ryan Adams and Warren Zevon). Completing the ensemble is Kristin Mooney, a singer who lends her sweet, rootsy voice to the album’s signature three-part harmonies with Seliger and Duff.
