Product Notes

'The style of 7 AM can be called "Americana," but to limit the description to one word would be a great disservice. For one thing, Boyd brings in sounds that are not usually associated with the genre. On the last song, "Wide Awake," (unfortunately not a Katy Perry cover), there is gorgeous saxophone work reminiscent of Stan Getz, and "Being Beautiful" uses flute parts that sound more like something from Pet Sounds than Live at Folsom Prison. The song is a pop masterpiece, full of the sort of pretty sustained and extended chords and up-strumming that only the cynical can resist. The organ playing is brilliant throughout, the backing vocals beautifully balanced and never unduly intrusive, and the rhythm section almost flawless. The blues solo on "Wide Awake" is remarkable for the guitarist's technique and touch. Every song on the album displays a great deal of attention and care from the musicians and engineers and producers - the album is a technical achievement of which to be very proud.' - Robert Nuse of SIMGE local music blog Boyd USA is the musical journey of Salvatore Boyd. Born and bred on the ocean in NJ, ever the restless soul, Sal's journey has brought him far north and south across USA. These journeys have fueled Sal's ever prolific juices to create his not quite rock 'n' roll but more like heart 'n' soul sound. It's a joyful noise! Salvatore is greatly inspired by gospel music and it's universal freedom. This has led us to the peaceful and warming sounds of 7am, Boyd USA's debut album. The songs of 7: am were created in two separate 2 day recording sessions at Shorefire Recording Studios (elegantly recorded and mixed by Joseph Demaio) in Long Branch, NJ. Boyd and producer Marc Swersky (Joe Cocker, Gedeon Luke) took advantage of the feel and size of the studio, decided to just throw the music in front of great players and record it old school. Playing through each song about 4 times with Boyd singing and playing acoustic guitar or mandolin the band featuring Steve Holley (Paul McCartney & Wings) and James Williams (Gary Burton) on drums, Thad Debrock (Aimee Mann, Spring Awakening) and Al Street (Sugerman 3, Charles Bradley) on guitars, Todd Caldwell (CS&N, Burlap to Cashmere) Plinky Giglio on B3 and piano, and Swersky covering the bass, laid the foundation for the bed of 7am. With Steven Salcedo (Gedeon Luke) on saxophones and flute, and Kenny 'Stringbean' Sorenson on harmonica adding great color and mood to 7am's dusty beds. All that was left was the need for sunrise and that came from featured vocalists Layonne Holmes (Bruce Springsteen), Gedeon Luke, Brielle Brown, Janet Mendez, and The Puryears who brought that sweet gospel sound. 7am is music to be listened to on your way to work or church or when your the only one just arriving home when the rest of the world is waking back up.
