The Masarie Gang - August 27th
Susannah Masarie on Vocals and Rhythm Guitar
Doug Morton on Lead Guitar and Vocals
Phil Anderson on Upright Bass
Steve Baird on Drums
The Masarie Gang features the songwriting and vocal style of Susannah Masarie. The steady presence in Masarie's early life of a wide variety of music genres – from jazz, classical, opera, folk, rock, bluegrass, and country - has produced in her a diverse songwriting style that nearly defies description. The range of musical artists that listeners compare the music to includes The Cowboy Junkies, Mazzy Star, Toni Price, Patty Griffin, Gillian Welch, Nick Drake, June Carter, and Pink Floyd. There is “space” in Masarie's music - leaving room for her smoky and haunting vocals. The sound is a mixed bag of folk, rock, blues, jazz, gospel, bluegrass, alternative country, and Americana sung with the voice of an old soul. We like to call it “Appalachian Gothic.”
The Masarie Gang’s sound is rounded out by her talented band. Doug Morton, Phil Anderson, and Steve Baird have all been playing music in the Atlanta area for decades. On April 23rd, 2016, The Masarie Gang released a new album entitled The Mountains Are My Home. It is a diverse collection of upbeat songs, including both originals and covers, arranged in Masarie's own traditional music style with hints of jazz and folk. This new album features various musical guests, including Bill Fleming on pedal steel guitar, and a version of Hank William’s "Ramblin Man" featuring Masarie’s mother, Gayle Masarie, on cello.
