Our version of Lovesong (The Cure, Adele) is up. We struggled a little with tempo — too fast? too slow? — will probably pick it up a little in live performances. We all really like the overall sound, though, including tasty solos by both Nathan and Greg. Enjoy.
The band pulls many of its tunes from Dr. Jody Yeary’s (vocals, guitar) 2002 album Fast Horses and Beautiful Women, reflecting both her personal and professional experiences as a licensed therapist, and delivered with uptempo rhythms reminiscent of her childhood home in the hills of Kentucky. Other songs come from Nathan Ladyzhensky’s (violin, guitars, keyboards) background with Russian folk songs, and a sprinkling of traditional and modern jazz supplied by Elissa Stevens (vocals), the odd country or rock tune via Greg Richey (guitar) or Lee Richardson (bass), or whatever else may strike its fancy.
