Here are some of the artists we are helping "Look for America"
A full integrated conventional and digital media promotion service for the independently minded musician.
Every now and again, a really good one appears! As is the case with Case Garrett’s (acoustic, electric guitar, piano, Fender Rhodes, B3, backing vocals) album Aurora is given stellar support from Eric Swiontkoski (drums), Jimi K. Bones (electric, acoustic guitar, mandolin), Michael Douchette (pedal steel guitar), Jennee Fleenor (fiddle), Kevin Post (dobro), Aaron McDaris (banjo) and there’s others too. That guest on selected tracks. Garrett wrote all but JJ Cale cover “Call Me The Breeze” (I recall an excellent cover by Bobby Bare on his As Is album).
Memphis-born, Garrett’s songs aren’t short of irony. His music as he takes a wry look at life is often as not entertaining. Albeit “Long Way Down” reminds me in the style, lyrically and mood wise of something Mary Gauthier could well have recorded! Dark. As for his cover of “Call Me The Breeze” it bounces along at a fair rate of knots as you have excellent Dobro, electric lead guitar and harmony vocals lend support to his fine lead vocals. Entertaining throughout “She Never Likes Elvis” is a nice piece of drama, and with the bottle dictating the fiddle draped “The Thought Of You” you can’t help but smile. I imagine from some people you may not think first off would be prompted to react in such a fashion.
All in all, the album has eight tracks. One of which “Going Down To Mobile” (the first version warmed in fiddle and a chugging rhythm is the one I prefer) figures twice.
Others include the Geezinslaw Brothers-esque “Fill ‘Er Up”, what brilliant work as he provides more humour, and give the listener a genuine feel good feel set to stay with them for sometime. You also have “What Can I Say‘; again of the same tone it has more of that feel good vibe. Sure, it isn’t the most taxing but perfect if you feel like a pick-me-up.
