We've been writing and playing progressive acoustic music for the better part of 18 years. Yet it is only recently that our songs have been available outside of a live performance environment.
We're thrilled to present our 2nd CD, the 2006 release called "Kick Back on Maple Street".
Our debut called "Attitude on the Street" (also available here on CD Baby) featured older material - in some cases unrecorded songs dating back more than twenty years. "Kick Back on Maple Street" is all new. Well, as new as can be for a process that took two plus years to complete!
"Beyond Imagined" was the first song we recorded for this collection and "Running Out of August" was penned just after tracks for the first CD were completed. The rest evolved over the following 24 months, with "Spin Doctor" the newest. In fact, that was the last song completed back in July 2006.
Our music is still very much a mixture of myriad influences each member brings to the stage and recording studio. The principle voices remain Mel Green (Guitar/Harmonica/Vocals), George Pultz (Guitar/Vocals), Bob Littman (Mandolin/Violin/Vocals) and Eric Luskin (Bass/Vocals). Jim Mavor rounds out the group with percussion and stoic non-vocals (occasional accordion).
