Advanced listeners had this to say about “Roads”;
“The sweet and perfect harmonies of Sky draw my ear deeper and deeper into it. The instruments and their players spin and weave in an out of the verses like a long awaited summer breeze”. Larry Albert San Francisco, CA.
“Soil.. This one KILLS me. I was so excited to hear this song come out of you. It’s a classic movie crescendo song. A lasting song. I had a vision for a video with this one. Hear me out! A woman swimming in the ocean, slowly multiplies into smaller pieces, either reflections of her whole self or mirrored parts, eventually turning into sand, then slowly being reclaimed by the ocean bit by bit until she is whole again.” Hattie Peterson Duluth, MN.
“Roads” was produced by multi talented Michael Connolly of Empty Sea Studios in Seattle. He also lends his abilities with Strings, Mandolin, Voice and keys. “Roads” includes a stellar steel guitar performance by Orville Johnson on the track “Dirty Entity”. Holly Figueroa provides backing vocals on the title track “Roads”. Trina Willard of the indie smash film “Hump Day” contributed syrupy sweet vocal performances on the tracks “Dirty Entity”, “Bare Witness” and “Desk Criminal”. Suggested songs for airplay are “Dirty Entity”, “Sky”, “Bare Witness” and “Soil”. The FCC will not appreciate “Big Shitty”
“Roads” is a record that travels through many emotions, if you’re a fan of timeless writing, performance and production chances are you will have much in common with this effort.
