Album Notes
Like cool breeze on a summer night or a letter you thought you'd lost, Danger & The Steel Cut Oats catches you when you least expect it. With songs much older than the band's youthful spirit, they carve melodies out of memories long forgotten. Led by the gossamer vocals of Caylin Cervetti, Danger has one foot firmly planted in the mountains while the other foot keeps rhythm with the pulse of their home base in Nashville, TN. Stories about the Civil War, gambling, old love, Westward Expansion, train hopping, and black lung are woven over catchy songs with an air of independent sensibility.

In late 2007, Danger released its first EP entitled "The Birds Woke Us Early." With six song spanning the emotional gamut, "The Birds Woke Us Early" is a humble recording that feels like an old friend.

A great little album
I never gave Folksy-Bluegrass music a look until I accidentally discovered Danger & The Steel Cut Oats on Myspace.
This album of 6 songs is worth every cent. My personal favorites are \"Earthquakes\" and \"Eye of the Storm\". The use of what I think is a theremin at the end is also very fitting.
Great, great work you guys.
I am looking forward to another one.

Haunting melodies and harmonies, go with you long after hearing these songs. Great listening. Can't wait to hear more from this group.


Emphasis on steel cut
Wow! Great harmony on these heavy hearted songs. Can't wait for the next release.


Ive had the honor of talking with the "creator" of the band and they make honest music. Really a great listen with a fresh new twist to the folk genre.
