My Blue Heaven
"A hidden musical gem waiting to be discovered. A wonderful surprise." ~Powerpopaholic \'Sharp, tuneful, straightforward, unpretentious pop-rock. A transatlantic stew in which Beatle-y hooks and the classic 70's pub-rock sound of Squeeze, Graham Parker, and early Nick Lowe blend comfortably with the distinctly American strum & jangle of Wilco and the Jayhawks. Try it, you'll like it." ~DJ SJA San Francisco's Town & Country grew out of a songwriting salon that meets occasionally in deepest Merced, California. Arnie Kim (lead guitar/vox) is a professor of mathematics at UC Merced; Scott Gagner (guitar/vox/production) is a graphic designer who also records under the name Cartographer; Dan Weir (vox/guitar) is a writer who also helms the studio project, Orphan Town. Their debut EP, "My Blue Heaven" features the talents of John-Paul McLean (bass), Richard Wood (organ), Jonathan Chi (guitar), and John Hofer who drums for NorCal stalwarts, The Mother Hips. Recorded under the redwoods by J. Chi at In the Pocket Studio, with overdubs in various home studios. Mastered by Mike Wells. "My Blue Heaven" is available for download via iTunes, Amazon and eMusic.
