Cadillac Sky @ The Mucky Duck March 2nd

cadillac-sky_main1Here’s the 411…

WHO: Cadillac Sky

WHERE: McGonigel’s Mucky Duck

WHEN: Tuesday, March 2nd

Start Time 7:30 / Ticket Price $20

Website: http://www.mcgonigels.com/

The new album Letters in the Deep, produced by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, is anything but traditional and marks the metamorphosis of Cadillac Sky from a critically-acclaimed Bluegrass band to a band without boundaries. Over the past year, Cadillac Sky has explored a lot of new terrain live on stage and with the recent addition of David Mayfield on guitar the band has developed into one of the most exciting rock-shows around. That new energy also translated into the studio as Cadillac Sky began recording the new album in Auerbach’s studio, Akron Analog. The Akron sessions proved to be a pivotal moment for the band and Auerbach played an instrumental role with a hands-off production approach, totally concentrating on shaping the sound of the record. The result is an honest, breathing piece of art that is amazingly authentic and gut-wrenchingly real.

Letters in the Deep is scheduled for release nationally in June.
