ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Recorded in their old chicken coop garage turned recording studio in Pasadena, CA, Old Californio set out to mix a gritty soup of bucolic rock and roll influenced as much by Moby Grape, Crazy Horse and The Grateful Dead as by the chaparral canyons and ungovernable San Gabriel mountains themselves. Songwriter Rich Dembowski sings with a heartfelt voice that might remind some of the Band's Richard Manuel. His lyrics on the 10 song Westering Again evoke winsome images of riparian vistas and wine stained front porches, of places forgotten and out of the way. The album feeds from bright guitar-driven melodies with complicated and earthy arrangements, mixed in with a little down-home country twang and dovetailing instrumental jams that venture to the psychedelic/ philosophic.

Robert K

Enticing blend of Country-Rock-Americana
These guys set the bar quite high in terms of the writing and musicianship. The band comparisons in the "Album Notes"
are good reference points indeed, and if you like what "Everest" are doing - You will dig this as well. The recording shifts into high gear on tracks 5, 6 & 7 - and you really start to get the sense of the range of styles they are capable of tackling.
This is a band that clearly has something fresh to add to the Americana & Roots-Rock genres.
