THE MAVERICKS

 

It took life for us to get to this point – Everybody was so free. 

From the first notes, it sounded like an explosion of sound; We went where the songs took us with a singularity of purpose.

We came in to make music as grown-ups, to make music as men.

-- Raul Malo, lead singer of The Mavericks

 

             The Mavericks are back. The country-steeped garage band with a Cuban American lead singer, emerged from Miami with their sultry debut that was equal parts innocence, intensity and vintage influences. But time has a way of melting when you’re busy living life – and two decades has passed since their polyrhythmic brand of post-modern country has given the world “All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down,” “Here Comes The Rain” and “Dance The Night Away.”

 

             With their new album, time melts once again and the band that defied definitions, blurred genres and made everybody feel good, is back. The "most interesting band in the world" has captured the infectious energy and robust sound from their LIVE shows on their first release on The Valory Music Co., IN TIME. Whether it’s the Buck Owens-influenced “Dance In The Moonlight,” the panoramic Orbison-esque “Born To Be Blue,” the horn-punctuated retro noir “Back In Your Arms Again” or Tejano-esque “All Over Again,” the Mavericks have once again found the way to make soul music and sole music.

 

             For Malo, the lead singer with the rich supple voice that’s second to only Roy Orbison in its ability to convey lonesome, desire and vivre; drummer Paul Deakin and multi-instrumentalist Robert Reynolds; as well as longtime collaborator keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden and seasoned guitarist Eddie Perez, life has made them richer in terms of experience, playing acumen and a sense of their own musicality. It has also deepened the connection between them in a way that heightens the singular chemistry that made the Grammy-winning band one of the most exciting live propositions in any musical genre.

 

             “Maybe the space has given us a sense not of how, but more what can happen when we come together,” says Deakin, whose spent the years apart balancing master-level carpentry with touring with David Meade and Jason White. “Just being there, and experiencing it, you don’t think about it. But there is definitely something when you get Raul, Robert, Eddie, Jerry Dale and I in a room that’s more…"

 

             “And the way this record happened: it really fostered the passion, the urgency and the hyper-listening of being in tune with each other. It’s a way of being in tune we don’t have with anyone else.”

 

             Ironic, since other than a disjointed album seven years ago, the Mavericks had gone their separate ways. Through happenstance, serendipity and a collective convergence of the cosmos, the band members found themselves entertaining the notion of some live shows for major festivals, then the idea of recording emerged.

Seth Walker


The driving delivery and infectious down-home style of Seth Walker's voice and songs resonate with Blues and Roots music. Although he is heavily influenced by guitar players BB King, T-Bone Walker and Snooks Eaglin to name just a few, Seth also has a great gift for songwriting in the blues idiom.
