Goofin Records 2010
GOOFIN RECORDS, in joint venture with RIPSAW RECORDS, will release "NOT FOR NOTHIN‟," a 15 track CD by MARTÍ BROM (www.myspace.com/martirockabil ly), in Europe end of October 2010.
MARTÍ BROM, a performer internationally acclaimed for her hard-driving rockabilly and sultry traditional country vocals, collaborated on the album with premier Washington area musicians and Grammy-winning producer PETER BONTA to create a contender for best roots rock, hardcore country, rock „n‟ roll, rockabilly, Americana album of the decade. According to MARTÍ, however, her goal was more modest - simply to record a DC-themed thank you note for the Washington music community‟s hospitality during her family‟s military tour of duty here.
" NOT FOR NOTHIN´ "
MARTÍ‟s core support consisted of DC mainstays PEDRO SERA on guitar, LOUIE
NEWMYER on bass, and SAUL McCORMACK on drums - with Boogie Man DARYL DAVIS on piano. This energized crew was supplemented with key contributions from Dieselbilly BILL KIRCHEN on guitar and vocals, bluegrass fiddle player TAD MARKS, rockabilly BILLY HANCOCK on guitar, DAVE VAN ALLEN on twangin‟ steel guitar, veteran DEL PUSCHERT on tenor sax, down and dirty CHRIS WATLING on baritone sax, and bluegrass BRYAN SMITH on slappin‟ doghouse bass.
Martí selected all natural ingredients in making this tribute to the current and historical musical resources of the Washington area. Not only was the musical roster home-grown, so was the studio (BIAS), production team, engineer (Grammy Award winner JIM ROBESON). GOOFIN RECORDS also approached the DC label of RIPSAW RECORDS as a partner to ensure 100% DC bona fides.
Songwriters with a D.C. area connection include rockabillies TEX RUBINOWITZ, JANIS MARTIN, and SEAN MENCHER, BILL KIRCHEN and his wife LOUISE, as well as Baltimore‟s honky-tonkin‟ ARTY HILL and Virginia‟s Austin, Texas
transplant and long-time Marti songwriter, TERI JOYCE. MARTÍ also gives her signature spin to tunes popularized by Winchester‟s PATSY CLINE, rhythm and blues hall of famer RUTH BROWN, rockabilly/punk rocker MARTHA HULL, bluegrass hall of famer BILL HARRELL, and legendary Baltimore rocker PAT BROWN.
