Sara Riley Mattson One of my favorite albums for road trips because my husband loves it, too. It's solid, fun music by talented artists you can tell are having a good time. I go back, often, to Close to You and We Are Still At War. Favorite track: We Are Still At War.

Draff Beautifully recorded, sensitively produced set of excellently crafted songs, at times evoking Bob Dylan. Rolling Ocean & Summer Sun sounds like a beautifully updated version of the Byrds. Absolutely excellent!
Left and Right -- perfectly placed comic relief. I laughed out loud at the "not even any James Taylor" line! Favorite track: Rolling Ocean & Summer Sun.

about

The Music
Thank you for investigating this music and I hope you hear something you like. We recorded this the “old way.” We all got together in the studio and jammed, with charts and almost no rehearsal. No click track or grid or autotune or whatnot. (I’m not against any of that on principle, but since I’m not on a label or anything it’s alright if I do it the way that makes me feel comfortable.) It’s rare to meet musicians now a days who enjoy working like that. I’m very grateful to know a few.

Your Support Is Appreciated
Recordings like this are not too expensive to produce in the grand scheme of things, but it does add up for a little guy like myself who’s not exactly a Wall Street banker by day. Please donate if you enjoy the music and you have the means. The more money I make from this recording, the sooner I can get the guys together in Pittsburgh to make a follow up. If you enjoy the music but money is tight, It’s all good. A kind word of encouragement or recommendation to a friend is rarer and more valuable than cold hard cash.
