The Madisons Fourth Album 'Greener' Nestled in the Tennessee Smoky Mountains, The Madisons
left behind gritty city life to find something greener. They ditched traffic jams,
sirens, and oppressive humidity for mountain air and a different life outlook.
Changes in their environment affected not only their lives, but added new dimensions
to their music. “We feel we made the right move to surround ourselves with forest
and mountains”, says multi instrumentalist and vocalist Lizzie Harrah. “We followed
our instinct to return to ancestral roots, and to be graced with the presence of
Wayne Bean. Greener reflects the change in locale, in sound, instrumentation, and
Greener, the band’s fourth collection of songs, weaves together various American
musical influences (Country, Blues, Traditional, and Jazz) into a refreshing sound
which refuses to be genre-fied. Recorded old-school style, rehearsed and played together
live, the Madisons maintain a spontaneity and spark lacking in much modern music.
Studio veteran Lizzie Harrah’s production experience with acts such as ZZ Top and
Timbuk3 help define Greener’s sound which ranges from sparse arrangements to electronic
or full orchestral feels. Musicians appearing on Greener include: Pete Gorisch, Allan
Gill, Dahr Jamail, Rusty Stone, Ivy Latham, Garrett Hartman, Bob Wall, Valerie Haltom,
Phil Leonard. Keep up with The Madisons at www.MadisonsMusic.com
