Ten Dollar Pony
Ten Dollar Pony is Larry Nair and Liza Beth Oliveto.åÊåÊ They met in the usual way.åÊåÊ He asked her to sing, and people said they liked it.åÊåÊ So they just kept singing and playing and now look what‰Ûªs happened‰Û_
They've just released their first album as a duo, and they certainly have a signature sound. Sure they've got banjo mandolin and dobro on this one‰Û_ so you might be thinking "Bluegrass??" But you'd be wrong. For starters most of the songs on this CD are underlaid with strong rock drumming and bass, then there's rock guitar and Reggae licks played on a banjitar, REM flavored mando, swamp soup dobro all mashed up into a country rock gumbo‰Û_ maybe you better have a taste and you tell me what the genre is? Larry and Liza Beth‰Ûªs music is firmly based in a ‰ÛÏvocal-centric‰Û� and melody driven aesthetic.åÊåÊ Their lively blend of original and cover tunes encompasses many styles‰Û_folk, pop, blues, and country rock to name a few. åÊ Whether delivering intimate and heart wrenching ballads with warm harmonies, or raucous blues, their music ranges from sweet to wryly observant, to perversely funny, all served up with intelligence and wit.åÊåÊåÊ They‰Ûªve spent a lot of time in the woodshed and on stage together‰Û_ and it shows.
