Eddie Seville (Steel Rodeo)
Based in Connecticut, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Eddie Seville has further enhanced his considerable reputation with this outstanding third full-length album. It opens to the pulsating folk-rock of "A Crooked Mile" with its superb mandolin introduction and backing, and slows down with "The Queen Of Kerosene" (the goddess of gasoline), the latter is memorable for its iconic lines, "you're a blow torch in the dark, a powder keg on a spark, you're the one that I blame when my heart goes up in flame" - BLUES MATTERS
The Buttondowns are a three-piece band based in the New Haven area. The band's set list emphasizes original compositions ranging from rockabilly to power pop to good old fashioned rock and roll. Plus there's always a few unexpectedly interesting cover songs. And The Buttondowns have been hard at work this summer on a new, full-length CD of original music recorded with Vic Steffens at Horizon Music Group. Look for it to be released later this year. If you like Nick Lowe, if you like Robert Gordon, if you like NRBQ, you'll like The Buttondowns too!
