Album Notes
Great Big House is Rick Berlin w/ The Nickel & Dime Band’s 5th record in a decade. In my mind it’s our best, most coherent and multi-genre (hard rock, americana, pop, crazy). I was going to include a parenthetical under the title which might have read: (Sgt Pepper in Hyde Square) but I’ve changed it to read: (Orchestra luna - my first ever band - in Hyde Square). Partly because of the big hearted vibe this band puts out live and as it reminds me of the early innocence of Orchestra Luna

see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rick_Berlin

tho it’s grown up differently and has no actual orchestra. It does cover many bases musically and is fully produced without sounding processed. To a great extent, all the songs are true and come from a life lived. The trombone player’s mom, my sister Lisa, was in Orchestra Luna so with my nephew Sam playing with us, it’s a full circle.

What’s been said about us recently:

I'm really loving this record...it's pure genius! ...it’s seeping into my bloodstream
- Brian Charles. Zippah Studios/The Sheila Divine

The band was a lot of fun. Rick is like some amazing combo of David Byrne, Neil Young, and Fred Schneider.
- Chris A’s friend Bill

TJ (our engineer/producer) is the G.O.A.T.
- Jane Mangini

And what YOU brought to this record (in every song you played on) put each one of them over the top. Truly. Would not have blown Brian Charles's mind (mastering) without.
We are (I am) so lucky t have you on this stuff.

Masterful - amazing work TJ and Rick (and whoever else may have worked on that mix)!
- Chris A

It’s beautiful. I’m blown away. What I just heard captures the essence of it. It’s really great work.
- Brian McCaffrey

This is gonna be an epic record.
- Edrie (Walter Sickert & The Army Of Toys)

Love this song (Great Big House) Rick!
Thanks for sending out into the world.
Glad you're still out there making a lot of noise!
