Familiar Roads & New Horizons
Somebody's Mother and the Acoustic Detour Somebody's Mother and the Acoustic Detour is an acoustic-based vocal harmony group playing a wide variety of well-known to more eclectic music, as well as more and more original songs. The group was originally formed by Camano Island, Washington residents Carla Helin and Cathy Tibert in 1993. In 2005, after singing together as a duo for many years, the two singers added Cathy's husband Paul on bass, and fellow Camano Island resident Mike Hilley on Mandolin. In early 2006 Eric Wilmoth, a new resident to the island, joined the group lending lead guitar and vocal contributions. 2006 was a busy year for SMATAD and they enjoyed many fruitful gigs, finally entering Plum Tree Recording Studios (Stanwood, WA) for their debut CD in June. The result of that experience is Familiar Roads and New Horizons, A CD representing the band's strongest material and also featuring original songs by Paul, Cathy, Carla and Eric. Released in October the CD has already received an enthusiastic response and has sold surprisingly well on the island. Sit back, put your feet up and let Carla and Cathy and the rest of the band take you on an Acoustic Detour.
