Routes and Branches Play List 6/06/09

This week I had the band Sideroads into the studio to talk about their new album Destinations. Sideroads is a local group that has been together for about two years now. They first played together when Michael Kevin Daly and Richard Gabriel were looking for a bass player (Willie McEachern) and drummer (Joel Narva) to back up their guitar playing. They told me that by the end of that first rehearsal they all felt good about the group and looked forward to the next time to play together which continues to this day.
They have just released their first CD Destinations which features songs written by Michael, Richard and Willie. They each bring a different perspective to song writing, but then they back each other up which brings a balanced harmony to the whole CD. Even though he didn't write any of the songs, Joel also feels like he helps to make the band's sound blend together.
