Boston Americana Band birth
This Boston Americana Band formed in 2007 when the drummer joined the three other musicians of the group for an old fashioned jam session. They immediately knew they had something good, so they spent the next two years developing original songs which fit the style of Roots/Americana music. The songs tell familiar stories, from the heartache of "Taken" and "If You Were Mine" to the communal search for meaning in "In the End" and "Troubled Shoes", to the homesick yearning in "Home." Contributions from a vocalist and a keyboardist enhance the album's musical potency. This CD represents everything that is important to this Boston Americana Band: real people playing real instruments, rich vocal harmonies, and inspired songwriting.
Boston Americana Band acclaim
The Boston Globe "Top Local CDs of 2009" -- "[This Album] masterfully blend roots-rocking guitars, ragged-but-right vocals set to rustic melodies, and other good stuff that never goes out of style when it's done right. Echoing the late-night/early morning feel of alt-country progenitors such as the BoDeans and the Jayhawks, this is an auspicious debut that brims with equal parts heartache, swagger, and a dose of hard-won wisdom." - Jonathan Perry, Boston Globe
They want people to enjoy their music as much as they love making it. Over the next several years, this Boston Americana Band will work diligently to promote their music and establish a reputation as a highly acclaimed roots/Americana band.
