Bassist-composer John Davey is excited to announce the release of his new CD “Open Range”, featuring guitarist Ken McGloin and drummer Dean Sharp. The recording was produced by Davey and Sharp, recorded primarily at The Clubhouse Studio in Rhinebeck NY by Paul Antonell, with additional recording at Dean’s Elbo Projekt Room in Kingston, NY. The recording was mastered by the amazing producer-guitarist-composer-sound sculptor David Torn. The record features ten new compositions by Davey, as well as two classic Western tunes “Home On the Range” and “Wayfaring Stranger”. The music covers a wide range of the American landscape – a hobo stew of acoustic-electric power-trio/country/indie-rock/jazz/improv. This recording was partially funded by a Kickstarter campaign. and is available NOW through CDBaby, iTunes, and Amazon.
For a taste of the wide (open) range of the CD, here are two tracks – the pastoral “HEARTLAND” and the slammin’ “BETTER DAYS” ….Enjoy!
