Verve Daddy has been hard at work and now we are ready to share our new album with you. We are happy to release the 11 song CD, Dangerous Days on Electric Earth Records. You can check out the songs and buy the CD or download the album at www.CDbaby.com, iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, Spotify or wherever you typically go for music.

Here are some notes on Dangerous Days ! We hope you enjoy it ! !

After the release of their first album Ain't My Street in 2009, Verve Daddy proceeded to play live and refine their sound in the clubs of northeast Ohio. Taking a break to write in 2011 at a Lake Erie cabin produced the seeds that eventually became this Dangerous Days album. The band has evolved. The songs evolved and through the wonders of the Sonic Lounge Studio Neve console, they have been captured with warm, organic production for your enjoyment. More horns... more melodies that stick in your head. This album includes something for everyone. Some highlights... a funk rock groove with the Hammond B3 work of the great Joe Vitale on Confusion. In Devil Don't Take My Soul, you get 12 bar blues confession with clean guitar, nasty guitar and a weaving trumpet and sax combined solo featuring the Verve Daddy horns. Mandolin and piano create the dramatic backdrop for Go Your Way with the highlight of Joe Grace's soft saxophone touches. Filled with memorable guitar riffs, soaring horns and excellent keyboards throughout. Each song with a story to tell.

- Chris Gibbs, Mark Ecclestone, Joe Grace, Kevin Armbruster, Michael Abraham and John Jesser  (aka Verve Daddy)

VERVE DADDY

Verve Daddy

Verve Daddy is a group of six guys with six string rock and roll, blues, and garage roots - honing their craft in the clubs of Northeast Ohio, where nothing is given and everything is earned. Guitars, drums, harmonica and horns take you to great places with many comparisons: The Heartbreakers, Eagles, The Who and The Stones. More modern comparisons include The Smithereens, Gin Blossoms and Lumineers.

In late 2008, they took a break from playing live to complete their first album of original music. The end result is a CD, "Ain't My Street." Each song is unique and diverse, yet the songs are connected to each other in themes that span decades. In 2016, they released “Dangerous Days,” 11 songs that put melodies in your head which you’ll hear days later.  Funky horns, slide guitar, ballads, blues and rock and roll come pouring from the disc or vinyl album.

The band members bring years of bar band, recording and songwriting experience from a blend of hardworking backgrounds.

The best way to appreciate Verve Daddy is to listen to their music and spend an evening rocking with them.
