This album is out of print. They are now gone forever. You can, however still buy it as a digital download from all the fine folks listed in our links to the left of this bio. "All Over The Road" is still available and we will have a new record released in October, "Hello Cruel World", featuring special guests David Grisman, Sam Grisman, Al Perkins and Billy Block.
The road less traveled usually begins in familiar territory. Only after some time spent wending along, do the recognizable signposts become few and far between. The subtle contours of a new landscape begin to show themselves. The locals aren't as easily identified. Welcome to Mars Arizona.
Attending one of their shows is like sitting down with a few good friends that nurture your soul with vocals and songs that are earthy in character played in an understated style. The transparent lyrics are short stories of disappointment, desperation, falling from grace, recovery, falling in love, mourning, excess, joy and renewal.
"Mars Arizona takes yesteryear's cosmic American music and kisses new life into an old vision." - Café Du Nord
"Led primarily by singer Nicole Storto, songs such as 'Promise Me Nothing' and the soulful yet winding "Voyeur" seems to fly off the disc, bringing Natalie Merchant and Liz Phair immediately to mind. What is most interesting is how they straddle the line between contemporary rock and an Americana sound... a rather lovely album." - Pop Matters (Jason MacNeil)
"Mars Arizona melds a roots, alt-country and rock sound that flows well from song to song through the versatility of main songwriter Paul Knowles. Lead vocalist and co-writer Nicole Storto at times sings with the hush and lilt of Sundays' vocalist Harriet Wheeler, but with the added grit of Concrete Blonde's Johnette Napolitano." - Miles of Music
"While I've done a little bit of traveling in my time, I've never happened upon anything quite like Mars Arizona in my travels, musical and otherwise... I not only want to hear more from the band but would also like to live there for awhile." - Freight Train Boogie
