Old Reliable - Gone Are The Days
A fixture on the independent music and roots scene for ten years, Old Reliable has earned a name making gritty, honest roots music combined with the fire of rock and roll and the howl of bluegrass. Centered on the songwriting of Shuyler Jansen and Mark Davis, Old Reliable’s unique style is combined with lyrics that are unafraid to explore the darker themes of traditional country music. The key to the group’s success is their ability to sound utterly natural; nothing appears forced or artificial, and no one raises an eyebrow at the bubbling synthesizers lurking behind the fiddle or the fuzz guitar solo. Gone Are The Days features songs from both Shuyler Jansen and Mark Davis, and sees the band welcoming guest musicians like Howe Gelb (Giant Sand) and Robin Hunter (The Imagineers).
