Hard on the heels of his recent solo outing “Little Town Blues”, local troubadour Mark Lucas is back with a new offering from his stalwart band, The Dead Setters.
‘The Continental Drift’, the band’s fifth release offers gritty observations on life & love driven by a bunch of musicians schooled in everything from punk to country, but all with a taste for tale well told & a melody that hooks you in.
Press so far:
“The recipe seems pretty simple: creeping easy on the ear melodies, songs written with ingredients from the store where Tom Petty and Elliott Murphy shop, a voice which is very akin to that of Gerry Rafferty, guitar sounds emerging from the strings of Bonnie Raitt … well, enough parts to make the great record that this CD has become.”
