His new album, "Alright Now," marks the apex of a musical career that began when Mallett was eleven years old, playing in a country and folk duo with his older brother, Neil. " 'Alright Now' is smooth, intimate, and it's so real that I would say that it's almost scary to any mainstream music scene. But for true hard core songwriters, 'Alright Now' is a masterpiece and one that you can listen to and learn from for years to come. Yes, David Mallet has proven that once again it really is all about the music." ~ Jan Duke for nashville.about.com In the millenium edition of The Bangor Daily News, in his home state, Mallett was named along with Marshall Dodge, Andrew Wyeth, E.B. White, Stephen King, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and others, one of the most memorable "Mainers" of the twentieth century.
Published poet turned singer/songwriter Holly Hanson (from Massachusetts) and guitarist/songwriter Steve Hayes (from New Hampshire), collectively known as Neptune's Car, blend their lyrical and musical sensibilities together on their debut album Strawberry Moon. The appeal of this album is ageless as both young and mature audiences will enjoy these carefully-crafted story songs. Strawberry Moon is an album full of literate songwriting and a stand-out debut by this new duo. Holly and Steve call themselves Neptune's Car after the title of a historical biography song that Holly wrote. Neptune's Car was a clipper ship. In 1856, nineteen-year-old Mary Patten navigated the ship around Cape Horn to complete her husband's voyage from New York to San Francisco after he became ill at sea. The recording of Strawberry Moon is the culmination of six years of songwriting. Many of the songs grew out of Holly's research as a teacher. homeschooling her two sons. "The Charm," for example, was formed out of a lesson about pirates and life at sea. As the collection of songs grew, Holly sought out the musical companionship of fellow guitarist Steve Hayes. Steve's guitar playing and harmony vocals add a lively acoustic layer to the songs.
