This is the debut, self-titled album by The New Old-Fashioned. The New Old-Fashioned is a Rock-n-Roll / Alternative Country band hailing from the Dayton, Ohio area. The New Old-Fashioned pairs big vocal harmonies with songwriting that really paints a picture of life in the current Midwestern United States. Led by vocalist and songwriter David Payne, the voices of Kent Montgomery(Guitar), Tom Blackbern(Bass) are are all very present on the record making for big almost choral sounding vocal harmonies reminiscent of the Beach Boys or The Beatles, two groups these guys really aspire to. All these vocals sit very comfortably atop a thick wall of sound created with help from producer/engineer Patrick Himes(Ryan Adams, Gillian Welch, Shrug, Bonneville).
If you love the heartland rock sound of Tom Petty or Bruce Springsteen and the harmonies or Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, you should find this album right at home on your shelf and in your player.
