View Full Version : Anyone Wanna Review My Album??

Dec-17-2015, 12:19am
Hey all!

I don't always post, but I've loved the cafe for many a year. Just recently I came out with my first album - all original material, many many different genres - There's Gypsy Jazz, Bluegrass, Ratime, R&B, Funk, Blues, Swing, and even a little Latin!

Anyway, I would love if any of you could listen and tell me what ya think! I wrote, recorded, mixed, mastered, and produced all of it with my drummer friend and am setting up a summer tour.

Here goes nothin'! :mandosmiley:


Everything you hear that sounds like guitar, is me on my 5 string Fender mando, the rest is my Loar (You acoustic folk will like tracks 1, 5-7, and 12, the rest are electric, but hopefully you'll like a couple anyway!).

If you happen to like the sound, you can find us here on the book (https://www.facebook.com/DrunkandInTheWoods)

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

I listened to the first 6 tracks and track 12 all the way through. I just sampled the rest. I like the songs, there is surely a variety. I feel like someone into blues/funk is better to comment on overall sound, because I am also country/bluegrass minded.

Things I especially liked:
Production Quality
Track 3
The female vocals (not to say the other vocals were bad)

Good luck to you!

few bars in and I'm knocked for six & very envious of your ability. Great stuff dude
production sounds nice too.

I'm a "if I like it I like it" man, so I'm not limited (very much so) to bluegrass. If that helps!
What I'm not usually is a jazz sort, but my mandolin music playing is starting to have jazz inflections creeping in, so who knows!

great drummer by the way

Ah! Thank you all so much, I'm so glad people like it!

I don't know if those of you who posted will check this again, but if you do - would you mind if I ever happened to quote your posts for some gig ammo??

Thank you thank you thank you!

Don't ever EVER quote something off the internet.
Abe Lincoln told me that.

Nice playing hank!

To me, the recording sounded compressed but maybe it was my speakers.
