Album Notes
Empty Roads is a collection of original music that was released to a sold out crowd on Friday, September 13, 2013 at Club Cafe in the South Side of Pittsburgh. The album is a collaboration with talented writer and friend, Roman Marocco along with four time Grammy Award Winning Producer/Engineer Jay Dudt of Audible Images Studios.

“This is the best collection of music and the best work I’ve done as a producer in years” said Dudt.

Dan worked with the best of the best in Pittsburgh’s music scene.

“Eric DeFade, Pittsburgh’s premier saxophone player and Ralph Guzzi, well known horn arranger are on the album” says Bubien, “I also have Chris Nacy of “Izzy and Chris” fame playing harmonica on a few tracks.”

Backed by bass player Gary Ripper, drummer Andy Taravella and Timmy Mabin on keys the album is a solid mix of funk, blues and old school soul.

“There are two sides to this album,” Bubien explains. “There is the gritty blues sound that I Iike to call Louisiana Swamp and then it goes to the opposite end of the spectrum with smooth soul sounds rounded out by harmonies from Jimmie Ross (The Jaggerz), Morgan Maybray and Andre Marocco.”

Joe Monroe, Jonathan Vallecorsa and Stan Kleja are also a part of the All Star line-up contributing to the end result of Empty Roads.

“I feel very blessed to have all of these guys on my album. I knew how I wanted it to sound and they really helped bring it to life” said Bubien. “The songs themselves are traditional but I feel we were successful in making them sound fresh and new. We really did cover a wide spectrum of music and arranged the songs in a way that is something Pittsburgh hasn’t heard in some time.”

Empty Roads dropped on Friday, September 13, 2013 to a SOLD OUT crowd at Club Cafe in the South Side. The release event was preceded by airplay on WDVE’s Homegrown Show and was followed by extensive play on WYEP’s Soul Show, Big Town Blues and Rollin’ and Tumblin’. 93.3 The Wolf Youngstown also played the single “To Youngstown” on their Tangled Up in Blues radio program the weekend of its release. That is the same track that was used to promote the album with a music video directed by Pittsburgh native, Joshua Franzos. The video is on its way to going viral with over 5,000 views around the world.
