Wrapping up their Brand New Day tour The Mavericks made a two night stop at The Music Hall in Tarrytown, NY. The tour was in support of the release of Brand New Day – their first independent studio album on their own label Mono Mundo Recordings/Thirty Tigers.
After years on major labels, The Mavericks chose to set a new course with the founding of Mono Mundo and the release of their first live album, 2016s captivating All Night Live, Volume 1. On the spectacular Brand New Day, the beloved veteran band convincingly proves that they may have not even reached their apex yet.
The 10 songs that make up Brand New Day feature The Mavericks genre-defying style. Case in point, the album opens with the tejano/bluegrass-inspired Rolling Along, which sets a tone before the wall-of-sound power of the title track thrusts the listener deep into the musical journey. From the ’60s flavored Easy As It Seems to the accordion-fueled shuffle of I Will Be Yours to the heart-melting beauty of Goodnight Waltz, Brand New Day finds the eclectic unit as inspired, passionate and commanding as ever.
The band has been nominated for two Grammy Awards for 2017-Best American Album for Brand New Day and Best American Roots Song for I Wish You Well
