“Get Me Home By Christmas Eve” is a new song, arriving just in time for the 2012 Christmas season.  Yet, it was written 20 years ago.  What happened in between involves an intriguing  back-story.

The song was written and recorded by the band Cold Beer & Broads, a country-tinged rock band with a great Americana, rock ‘n roll name.  The mastermind behind the project is Larry Studnicky, a man with enormous musical talent that began his career pursuing other ambitions.

The cover for Kev Rowe’s 2010 album ‘Hi Love’ features a picture of the singer/songwriter relaxing alone with nothing but his thoughts on a sunny beach, and that’s exactly how the music makes you feel.  Rowe’s positive, mellow tracks evoke the laid-back simplicity of Rowe’s native South Carolina, but his lyricism is still filled with very human doubts and uncertainties.

I had the distinct pleasure of catching Doran Danoff and his very large and talented band at Hotel Café in Los Angeles last Saturday night.  It was the last show of a month long residency, and I’m sincerely grateful that I got the chance to see them.  First off, homeboy can play the freakin’ piano, and the dudes that play a smattering of instruments behind him (including bass/drums/guitar/3 piece horn section/sometimes ukulele) have no problem keeping up.

Recent musical trends have proved that Americana is a genre no longer confined within the Southern and rural Midwestern states.  Bands like Deer Tick (from Rhode Island) and Dawes (from Los Angeles) have proved that you don’t have to be from a specific part of the United States to be classified as country.  Even foreign bands like Mumford & Sons have been at the forefront of the Americana resurgence.
