Never “2 Late” To Hear New Music In The Albany Area
I guess I deserve 20 years in the pun-itentiary. I had a chance to hear some great music from a local twosome with a great name - 2Late. I can tell you right now, it’s not….
I participated in a jam session a few weeks ago at the home of Dean Howard and had a chance to meet one Mike Short. He proceeded (in between songs) to tell me about the singer-songwriting duo that he’s been involved in with Vicki Gayle. They call themselves 2Late.
Origin of the name?
“We were too late for a major recording contract,” according to Gayle.
Hey, I can relate! I loved the sense of humor about the “aging process” and was even more intrigued when the jam session with both Dean and Mike began to take a weird turn into the world of comedy songs.
These guys seemed to be loaded with them that nite – and Mike gave me a sample of some self-penned tunes – funny and otherwise. Very impressive.
At the end of the evening he handed me their new CD – 10 Years 2Late - a really nice compilation of originals.
Their are 14 cuts on the album. I particularly enjoyed both the title track, along with “Dust and Dreams”, but their are many other well written cuts that are worth taking a listen to.
You can read more about them, check their appearance schedule, and get information about their CD on their website. Do it now before it’s ……… (you finish it)
