Sometimes the songs are so doggone good that the doghouse plays itself. Skip Ward works the pocket on upright in the service of urban / urbane Americana songstress Emily Duff who waxes oh-so-poetic over our collective human condition throughout Maybe in the Morning .
Cut at FAME Studios, you can feel the history of this iconic locale in the grooves and melodies as rendered by Duff, Ward, drummer Kenny Soule, guitarist Scott Aldrich and session legend Clayton Ivey.
Dig Ward’s rhythm & blues and jazz flavored motifs which afford the Duff ensemble a definitive swingin’ disposition.
And they’re even better on stage….
