ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Game Six is the Olympia, Washington-based acoustic duo of Rob Morgan HIll and Derek Harris, whose album "God, Love & Mexico" on Exit 104 Records is slated for release in March of 2009.

Mixing a country music base with spiritual themes and twists of tropical, folk, rock, Latin and jazz sounds, Game Six has come to call their music "country-slash" because, as songwriter Hill says, "There's at least a little bit of country in everything we do, but there's almost always a slash before or after the country." Adds singer Harris, "A country music purist might not even think of us as country at all, but the same could be said about a lot of modern country artists that have influenced us and who we listen to."

The theme that unites the 13 songs on the new album can be found, the duo says, in the album's title. All the songs are about God, or love, or Mexico, or some combination thereof. But it's not just the title of the album for Hill who says "God, Love & Mexico" is also his formula for happiness in life. Finding much of his inspiration in spiritual themes, he's a husband and father of three daughters, and though he's a fair-skinned Irish boy, the singer-guitarist can't get enough of the sun, the culture, the pace, the music and the people of the small towns on the Mexican Riviera. In fact, the group is scheduled to celebrate the release of the album on two stages - one in their home town of Olympia and one in the Mexican coastal fishing village of Bucerias, the unlikely location for the "Shamrock Bar", the Irish pub that inspired one of the songs on the album.

Joining Rob and Derek for their album release concerts and on several of the tracks on the album is the spectacularly talented vocalist Brittany Kingery, who is working on her own solo album project this year with Exit 104. Among the other talented artitsts who contributed to the recording are producer-keyboardist Brent Pendleton and pedal steel player Milo Deering, both of whom have extensive country music credits that include work with superstar LeAnn Rimes.

Wonderful country CD blended with spiritual themes and tropical flair
The musical duo, Game Six, mixes country music with spiritual themes, tropical, folk, rock, Latin, and jazz sounds on “God, Love & Mexico.” Their sound is primarily country, but the choices of instrumentation really throws each song in a different direction. For instance, “Shamrock Bar” has the classic pedal steel sound which is very much associated with country, but it is played more in a Hawaiian/Slack key form with a tropical drum groove underneath. “Bahia de Banderas” is also another unique track that features some eclectic Mexican sounds with a sweet brass section and the occasional Spanish sung vocals. “God, Love & Mexico” is a great CD for any Jimmy Buffet fan as it mixes country with tropical themes throughout.

Pleasant Surprise
I have been listening to this CD quite a bit on my morning commute and regardless of the fact that I am NOT a country fan and am as secular as Bill Maher, I really like it. Shamrock, Bahia and the Long Ride Home are absolutely stellar songs! I catch myself humming or singing these songs to myself more often than I ever expected.

The songs are heartfelt and the harmonies are spot on, so when I apply my criteria of "talent and passion" to define good music, this album passes with flying colors.

Put it on and take a drive and I'm sure you'll catch yourself singing these songs just like I did.

Kudos to you , Derek and Brittany.
