Live in Times Square

by James Dalton

supported by


Recorded live in front of a studio audience in Times Square, New York with Adam Alexander on percussion and Craig Akin on upright bass. Bonus track, "I Know Your Name Is Karen Ma", was recorded live at the Annex in Asbury Park.

"Offering up four tracks worth of highly eclectic and engaging folksy blues, this sweet little EP makes for alternately relaxing or invigorating listening. Dalton’s strong and booming vocals project a certain laid-back charm while his guitar, ukulele, and harmonica playing are quite sturdy and adroit. Recorded in front of a live audience, the music contained herein possesses a real intimacy and immediacy that’s both exciting and appealing in equal measure. The first two songs for the most part are very frothy while Dalton works that lowdown grindin’ grit somethin’ fierce on the fabulously hard-diggin’ “Dusty Old Goodbyes” and “I Know Your Name is Karen Ma.” A real kick-ass beaut.
