ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Indiana Town, the debut album from The Usuals, is filled with great songs featuring big acoustics, crunchy electrics, driving drums, and emotive vocals and lyrics.

Featuring Dan Castagna on vocals and Kevin Jackson on guitar, The Usuals formed in 1995 when the pair met at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. Castagna, from the streets of New York City and Jackson, from the back roads of small town Indiana, discovered a mutual love for great music that crossed genres. Rock, pop, country, bluegrass...it didn't matter as long as it was a great song.

The pair brought that love of great tunes to Indiana Town, a collection of 12 songs that range in theme from love lost, love found, love far away, and love in your arms. Musically, you'll find references to the electric rock of Matchbox 20, the acoustic pop of Toad the Wet Sprocket, the jangle rock of the Gin Blossoms, the emotive vocals of Counting Crows, and the diversity of Sister Hazel. But in the end, it's still Usuals' music.

The music was recorded in Indianapolis at Jackson's home studio, with Castagna's vocals tracked in Nashville. The Usuals made the record a family affair, bringing in Jackson's wife Jennie for harmonies, brother-in-law Dan Aud on drums, father-in-law Dennis Aud on bass, and extended family Eric Detweiler on guitar, Chris Mix-Foley on piano, and Jonathan Barnes on slide guitar.

Indiana Town is filled with great songs that you'll be singing long after the disc stops spinning. Go and listen.

great songs, excellent debut
the usuals have arrived on the scene! jackson and castagna do a great job with their debut in 'indiana town'. they are constantly mixing and matching various instruments, vocals, and genres on this album in order to paint a picture of the town -- it opens with rootsy acoustic guitar with sweet piano phrases on 'sweet hazel', with castagna showing his vocal prowess and his bluesy/rock edge. they are not afraid to rock out either, ad blues is a great example. all in all, a great debut and i hope there's more on the way -- don't not rock on! buy two.

Stong, Upbeat Music and Vocals.
This particular CD is filled with strong and upbeat music and vocals mixed with life experiences that run the gamit from joy to despair. Indiana Town is one of those rare sets that makes you want to tell others about its impact. I bought 5 and have handed them out to many an impressed fan. 3 thumbs up!!!
