On their upcoming album, Miss Guided Angels cover the song, “Let’s Drop It,” written by Josh Brooks from Vergennes, Vermont. This is what Josh had to say about it:
“Having a song covered by George Nostrand is a sign you’re doing something right. He rubs shoulders with some of the state and regions best musicians and songwriters, so I’m humbled and honored that he picked one of my songs for his album.
I love how he re-envisions the song as a duet, like a conversation between two lovers who want to get past arguing and on to the good stuff. A good cover keeps the spirit of the original while adding a new flavor or perspective, and George and his Misguided Angels have definitely done that with ‘Let’s Drop It’”
We had the honor and privilege of playing a couple of great festivals this summer and want to thank Ray Massucco at Roots on the River, as well as, Chris and Matt Lillie at NoTown.
There are a lot of festivals out there, run to varying degrees of success, but these folks really know their stuff and treat musicians not as trash or royalty, but as friends. Kudos to Ray, Chris and Matt and hope to see everyone next year.
The successful release party for the single and video, “Here Today, Gone Tomorrow,” from the upcoming album by Miss Guided Angels was held May 30th at Strangefellows Pub, 13 Evelyn St., Rutland. There were brief acoustic performances by the band, as well as producer Phil Henry. Here’s the video:
