Tommy Malone Trio (of The Subdudes) + Clarence Bucaro

On June 18 MC Records release’s Tommy Malone’s “Natural Born Days.” Produced by John Porter (Buddy Guy, Roxy Music, Taj Mahal, The Smiths) “Natural Born Days”  tracks one man’s journey through life, suffering through hard times from hurricanes to heartbreak but always finding a way to keep on keeping on. Malone’s songs alternately offer masterful psychological insight, a bulwark against troubles and a lighthearted sense of wonder, all sculpted by his remarkable voice and steadied by an intricate array of guitar textures, rhythmic foundations, fills and solos, from Travis-picking country to deep south electric slide. His writing reveals the same strain of southern R&B that informed such genius songsmiths as Bobby Charles and Dan Penn.
