The Demolition String Band Gracious Days Featuring Elena Skye And Boo Reiners

The Demolition String Band Gracious Days Featuring Elena Skye And Boo Reiners

New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Varese Sarabande Records) Eminent mainstays of New York's bluegrass and country-rock scene, Elena Skye and Boo Reiners bring their singular Demolition String Band back to their roots in their latest album Gracious Days. The set showcases traditional-styled originals like Skye's "Misfortune" and Reiners' "Under The Weather" along with meaningful covers from Woody Guthrie, Appalachian old-timey singer-songwriter Ola Belle Reed, legendary outsider Blaze Foley and even The Ramones. But whatever the sources, Skye and Reiners--and their gathering of stellar guest musicians--stamp them with their own indelible and instantly recognizable signature.

Comprised of members Elena Skye (vocals) and Boo Reiners (guitar), this Hoboken quartet has strong musical roots in bluegrass traditions, but those roots are shot through with plenty of rock 'n' roll electricity. Correlations could be drawn to towering roots/punk bands like Lone Justice and X.

Track List:
1 Jethro's Lullaby intro
2 Misfortune
3 Under The Weather
4 Questioningly
5 Why You Been Gone So Long
6 Dress of Roses

8 Hard Ain't It Hard

Produced by Three-time Grammy winner Steve Rosenthal
