This music is original Americana Folk Country flavored sad and not sad snippets of life full of ups and downs. Bruce Muckala is a songwriter living in the US. He started playing professionally at the age of eighteen as the guitarist in a 4-piece rock & roll band, later moving on to a Chicago/Blood Sweat & Tears style group and then to smaller acoustic duos and solo guitar gigs. He has been writing songs for most of his adult life, from Traditional Country, Country-Rock to Folk. The songs here are adult oriented and are in the folk, country-folk and country-rock genres and also what is often referred to nowadays as Americana. 'Older Now is a project begun with the thought of having old and new friends contribute their many talents,' Muckala relates. 'Along the way I asked other singers and musicians I admired to join in. I hope you enjoy it.' Thanks to all the fine friends and musicians who lent their wonderful talents. Kelly McGuire at Midnight Hour Studios did a great job mixing and Robert Hadley at The Mastering Lab did a superb job mastering it.
