    Thirteen new, instrumental tracks from Michigan USA native, Toby Bresnahan.

    Acoustic guitars, mandolins, bouzouki, banjos, slide guitars, strings, fiddles and rhythms are featured on Americay to create sort of an Instrumental, "Americana" vibe.

    Let's be honest. When you wear all of the hats, the chances increase exponentially that the bouzouki will be too hot and kick drum too weak. There's also an advantage to wearing all of the hats... no one to tell you that the bouzouki is too hot and the kick drum is too weak.

    I'm confident that I've learned quite a bit since my 2010 CD release Far From Home. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing back then. Well, I still have absolutely no idea what I'm doing but, I think I've gotten better at it. 

    Even if instrumental "Americana" (and I'm not convinced that is what this is) is not your "cup 'o tea"... I can only hope that you find these sounds pleasing to the ear. I worked very hard on this one to make it just that. Regardless if you listen on ear buds, Beats by Dre, in your car, truck, RV, kitchen, living room or 50,000 seat arena with huge sub woofers (dream on) it should sound quite nice.

    In my opinion, it is the perfect addition for those who love Summer bon fires, a nice glass of chardonnay, a pint or two of Guinness or, one of the myriad of excellent, local brews. I know you'll be having a nice get together with good friends very soon so, throw Americay on the player and your friends will beg you to burn them a copy. You have my permission to do so. Go for it. I would be honored. I really just want all of the ears on the planet to hear it. Is that asking too much?

    So, most bands / musicians who release a new CD tell you to "CRANK IT!". Well, not me. I think you'll enjoy this one set at a nice, comfortable, listening level. Preferably, surrounded by loved ones and wearing pajamas.

    I'm starting to realize that these vessels that we inhabit need more than basic food, water and love. These ports on the sides of our heads can very effectively feed the soul and are very efficient microphones when cleaned once a day with a soft Q Tip and fed with proper nutrition. Americay is the perfect ear nutrition with a nice balance of low carbs {woofer}, high fibre {tweeter} and of course, it's gluten free.

    I certainly enjoy the months and months of writing, arranging, recording, mixing, mastering, rinsing and repeating between all of lifes obligations. But, one of the most satisfying events is when it's finally finished. Of course, most satisfying for me is for you to hear it. A living, breathing collection of ones and zeros. I strap on headphones and take a nice, long bike ride for the critique. If I don't get hit by a car and upon returning, I still like it... it's a success and I know it is indeed ready for human consumption. Today is that day.

    I've read recently that there is far too much music in the world. That may be but, I hope you'll give this one a good listen or three.
