Yes, we here at Nippertown.com have unfortunately let several excellent homegrown CDs slip through the cracks. These things sometimes happen when you’re a little Mom & Pop website trying to cover a whole bunch of stuff around a rapidly growing arts scene. But we’re making a renewed effort to play catch up over the next couple of weeks. So some of the upcoming CDs that we’ll be reviewing might not be “new” new, but we didn’t want them to go unnoticed…
Chris Carey is probably best known around Nippertown as the drummer with Railbird, and let’s face, when a drummer steps out to record a solo album, sometimes, well, eyes tend to roll.
Fortunately, that’s not the case with “Sunset Moon,” an excellent showcase not only for Carey’s considerable talents as a lead vocalist, but also as a songwriter and arranger.
These ten original tunes by Carey sparkle with an easy-going, country-folk feel, eschewing the progressively adventurous, indie-rock path that Railbird has been following.
