The Jason Spooner Band – New album (“WIDE EYED”) release celebration concert at Skal, Vinalhaven
11.22.19 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$15
Popular Maine-based roots rock quartet, The Jason Spooner Band, will be celebrating the release of their fifth studio album WIDE EYED at Skal on Vinalhaven on Friday, November 23. The album is currently receiving nationwide airplay on a large number of Triple A and non-commercial radio stations across the US.
As the band approached the recording of the new material, they moved central operations to a small studio in Portland, Maine to which they had unhindered access at all hours which spawned a period of unprecedented creative energy. What ensued was the band’s most fruitful and creative recording experience to date with the core tracks for the album recorded live on the floor. The raw energy created in the space permeates the album.
Sara Willis of Maine Public Radio describes the album as “A rich musical journey. I can’t really put Jason in any category, his musical reach is wide and deep. And his songwriting is rooted in musicality, I mean the melodies are beautiful and goosebump producing… It’s all there and his band is strong, a full sound with really satisfying touches. Fully realized.”
