Michael Ray Brought his version of Americana music to "Live From Studio 5!"
The band goes by the name of Michael Ray & The Nasty Notes but only had one Nasty Note with him, Curt Hutchens.
The sound coming from Curt’s guitar, was far from nasty. Curt and Michael blended well and gave us an excursion through their new album, The Higher You Climb.
It was surprising to find that just two guitars and a little tower amp filled the studio.
There was even an old standard, Oh Suzanna, remade on the nasty notes forge.
Combining great pickin' with storytelling, and you have the makings of a great sound.
Michael even brought out something for dog lovers, Dirty Old Dog.
There was also a rockin' rendition of Hotel Sadie, that had me smelling barbeque.
I can’t wait to see them as a full band. Go see them whenever you can.
The Nasty Notes are working on fleshing out the band, so expect to hear even more amazing things from this band.
