Cambridge's Matt Storch and the Usual Suspects Have the Power of a Big Band and the Soul of a Troubadour
On their debut album, Big City, Cambridge gang, Matt Storch and the Usual Suspects have all the power of a rockin' swing big band mixed in with the soul of a troubadour. They kickstart things with the energetic Big City Blues then follow with the countrified How Do you Deal With It. After that, the boys dive right in to bombastic blues, smooth soul and tender ballads.
There's also a lot of history on this debut disc. These tunes were from their early days in 2007 to the present. band members past and present grace these wonderful recordings. The incredible Bob Egan of Blue Rodeo pops in on two tracks as well.
You can pick up this explosive CD at their fabulous live shows or by visiting Millpond Records in Cambridge and Sherwood Music in Kitchener. It can also be downloaded via the band's website or iTunes.
