San Diego Music Award Win!

sdma win

Our second album, The Southern Pacific and The Santa Fe, won Best Local Recording at the 2015 San Diego Music Awards!

SD Union-Tribune & Troubadour

It’s been a great week for the band in local press. We made our 4th appearance at the Carlsbad Music Festival’s Village Music Walk, where San Diego Union-Tribune’s music critic Jim Chute was in attendance. The next day he wrote:

“Seriously, this is one tight, well-balanced, entertaining, five-piece (including jug) ensemble. The fine violinist Batya MacAdam-Somer is the real deal and singer/guitarist/banjo player Clinton Davis is a skilled frontman and capable vocalist. The most remarkable moment in their 25-minute set: They played a waltz, and all of a sudden you were somewhere else. It showed the amazing power of 3/4 time.”

Also: The San Diego Troubadour has featured us on the cover of their September issue! It’s on news stands around the county now and online.

It seems only right to celebrate the honor with Chris Hobson, who recorded, mixed, and mastered the album with us at Rarefied Recording in North Park. Read Chris’ writeup on our recording session at his website here. The awards ceremony is on October 5th – Wish us well!
