ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"They are rockers, they are jazzmen, but first of all what the four musicians in Bathtub Mary do is produce a deliciously smooth, unforced sound, a sound introduced and constantly carried by their skill on the acoustic guitar - even when they play electric, as they sometimes do. "
- John Stifler
8/29/02 Daily Hamshire Gazette

Originally concocted as a pair of acoustic guitarists with a flair for rhythmic string play and a desire to build on each other, Phil DaRosa and Jon Wearn, with the direction of Professor Ted Mann, began writing and playing songs together. Realizing they were onto something, but looking for a bit more sound, they teamed up with fellow Classical Guitarist Jeremy Milligan (all three were Music Majors at Keene State College) who added a softer touch, sweet guitar hooks and a third voice to buff-up the harmonies.

After playing acoustic gigs as a trio in Keene, NH and during the summer on Martha's Vineyard, MA, the trio recorded Shortly After Dawn, an all acoustic release, under the name 'The Sofa Kings.' After graduating from Keene State, Milligan moved on to become a Jazz Guitarist for a major Caribbean cruise line. Sensing their need to continue, DaRosa and Wearn connected with Wearn's long time friend, bassist Jackson Smith. Smith added what is now the core funk and groove to BM's music, and through the following summer played numerous Martha's Vineyard gigs, and recorded a few studio demos with the band.

The missing link was still the drummer, and upon Milligan's return to the continent and the band, he virtuosically picked up the sticks and filled that hole. As a full band, they currently live and play in Northampton, MA, with venue listings constantly expanding. To support their vision, Bathtub Mary has founded Tight Records™, and records and mixes all of their own music.

A tight group of friends, and a tight group of musicians, their live performances feature improvisation and a humorous and light stage presence. Utilizing both Acoustic and Electric guitars, the band plays a range of music broad enough to fill a two and a half hour set without feeling repetitious.

If this is a "Demo" I'm ready for more!
"The Ubiquitous Demo" is no demo. Bathtub Mary hits the bullseye with this highly listenable (is that a word? - how about "euphonious") recording.

Their classical roots show through with their crystal clear harmonics and their arpeggios reminiscent of Ottmar Leibert, or even the classically trained Robby Krieger of The Doors.

Their vocals on "The Ubiquitous Demo" are tightly honed. These guys have been around for awhile to produce music of this quality. Perhaps holed up in a Cavern Club in Liverpool or some GI bar in Hamburg?

They remind me of Dylan's line in "Hard Rains A Gonna Fall," where he said, "I'll know my song well before I start singin'." These guys know their song well.

Thank goodness they have started singing.

The song, "Untitled" jumps out as a winner. Reminds me a lot of Quicksilver Messenger Service. That chord progression is straight John Cippolina. Chills.

Buy this sucker.

DP of MV

Great live band. Very well produced CD's. Lyrics, harmony and competence
The cd has a wide range of music that spans about 3 years. The lover of guitar licks will be very happy while fans that look to socially & politically inspired lyrics will be pleased. The musicianship of all four players is impressive. BM is a band we will all say I knew them when.... Their live covers are great too.
