The song was co-written by Waddy Wachtel with Danny Kortchmar and Tito Larriva, and Wachtel handles lead vocals. Wachtel was working with GRAMMY®-winning producer Greg Ladanyi on a project by The Cruzados, a band fronted by Larriva. Wachtel, Kortchmar and Larriva got together in the studio, and the song was born. “It was quite a joyous musical collaboration, and a hell of a night,” recalls Wachtel. “It's a serious rock and roll song and the record that we, The Immediate Family, made of it delivers like a runaway train. We are so proud that we are the ones who get to show this song to the world.” The single was recorded at Groove Masters Studio and Katonah Studios, engineered by Niko Bolas and Steve Postell, and mastered by Richard Dodd.

The Immediate Family, which was formed approximately two years ago, has been performing live and has released new music in Japan and Asia. QVR signed The Immediate Family to a multi-album deal and will be releasing the Slippin’ And Slidin’ EP on October 16. The five-song collection will give fans a deeper look into the music of this rock and roll powerhouse. A Denny Tedesco documentary about their iconic careers is also in the queue for release in 2021.

Scott Goldman, Host/Moderator, GRAMMY Museum® Public Programs, heard the single and remarked, “The Immediate Family has the cure for the social-distancing blues. ‘Slippin’ And Slidin’’ is a slice of rock and roll heaven!”

Remarking on the song, Christian Swain, Founder & CEO of Pantheon Media, DIY & How Studios and the Rock n Roll Archaeology Project, adds, “Not surprising to hear such a clean and tight down home rock n' roll song, co-written by Waddy Wachtel, but here being played by the legends of The Immediate Family band. A cool dobro slide hook slips and slides in and out, while Waddy growls his way through the femme fatale lyrics and the rest of the ‘Family’ follow in pursuit throughout the song!”
