Shaden Garett & the 12 Midnights
A DEFINITE step beyond his WCMA nominated 'S.G. and the Stratospheres' album, S.G. delivers with 'The12 Midnights'; It's heartfelt, honest, hypnotic, gut-felt, and somewhat gritty at times. Featuring a hefty handful of top-notch guest appearances such as The Be Good Tanyas (Frazey, Trish, and John), Paul Rigby (Neko Case), Jeremy Penner (The Wailin' Jennies), Chris Gestrin (K-OS) and famed east-coaster Christina Martin. Think of road trips, spinnin' Neil Young 'Harvest Moon' or Ryan Adams 'Gold'. The album also features a tribute to the legendary Mark Knopfler (Dire Straights) in the form of a CLASSIC alt-country version of 'Money For Nothing' (I might add, the AMBITIOUS 'Money For Nothing / Headphones' official video (youtube) is an ABSOLUTE MUST-SEE RIOT!!!) The sound is richly produced and recorded through analog/digital combo, retaining those old sounds from the 70's. The band is predominantly acoustic, featuring grand piano and stand-up bass (on almost every tune), violins, vibes, and some old organs..............for more visit shadengarett. Ca.
