Brand New Day is The Mavericks first independent studio album on their own label Mono Mundo Recordings/Thirty Tigers. Touring the US after the release, they stopped at the MPAC in Morristown, NJ. T2c’s Genevieve Rafter Keddy was on hand to capture the magic.
On the spectacular Brand New Day CD, the beloved veteran band convincingly proves that they may have not even reached their apex yet. The 10 songs tracks feature The Mavericks genre-defying style. The tejano/bluegrass-inspired “Rolling Along”, 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.
Considered by many to be one of the great and most unique American bands, The Mavericks formed in Miami in the late 1980s, eventually moving to Nashville and launching what would be an incredible career that featured hits, sold-out tours and the creation of a large and loyal fan base. The Mavericks created a one-of-a-kind sound that seamlessly blended elements of rock, Latino, folk, blues, country and more.
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
