Long Road of Doris Voxy
Dormancy is one hell of a place to wait! It is deceptively inactive, yet underneath, creativity stirs. And sometimes, if you get the right mix of ingredients and patience; magic and movement stir together. Soon, cracks open up to let out what can no longer be contained. Finally, a break-out occurs, and a rare sound is launched. And so goes the bio of Mattie McGrail and his 2009 debut CD, 'The Long Road of Doris Voxy', mastered by engineer Evren Goknar at Capitol Records Mastering Division in Hollywood, CA. Tracked and mixed with producer/engineer Enoch Jensen at EastLake Recording in Shelburne Falls, MA, along with producer Andrew Anthem. Love won and lost and a continued exploration of the human condition drive his songs. Songs that do more than just hold a mirror to the listener; but ones that reach through and pull the listener into the facade to have a look for themselves. ... acoustic and electric powerpop that blends gritty guitar riffs, haunting vocals, driving beats and atmospheric keyboard overlays.
