The Mavericks are back. The country-steeped garage band with a Cuban-American lead singer that had emerged from Miami in 1989 with their sultry debut reunited in 2012 after an eight-year hiatus. Two decades have passed since their polyrhythmic brand of post-modern country has given the world All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down, Here Comes The Rain, and Dance The Night Away.
The band’s first major label release debuted in 1992. What a Crying Shame, the band's second album produced four top 40 country hits including O What a Thrill, There Goes My Heart, as well as the title track. 1995's Music for All Occasions included the singles, Here Comes the Rain, which won the band a Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. This was followed by the hit All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down.
With their new album, In Time, the band that defied definitions, blurred genres, and made everybody feel good has returned. Songs like Dance In The Moonlight, Born To Be Blue and Back In Your Arms Again show that the Mavericks have once again found the way to make genre-defying soul music.
Songs: All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down, Dance the Night Away, Here Comes The Rain, What a Crying Shame, O What a Thrill & There Goes My Heart
Whitney Rose - Since storming onto the Toronto singer-songwriter scene in 2011, Whitney Rose has endeared herself to just about everyone with her intriguing, affecting and effective songwriting, powerful voice, immense personal charm, and throwback style influenced by Patsy Cline, Kitty Wells and, gender-be-damned, the likes of Tom T. Hall and George Jones. She started singing at her grandparent’s kitchen parties as well as in their little PEI bar at approximately the time she was able to walk and/or form sentences. Her debut album was co-produced by Blue Rodeo's Bazil Donovan along with David Baxter.
