The four tracks on the album cover the two sides of this talented Michigan picker. Half were recorded in an acoustic session with a bluegrass rhythm section and Mark on square-neck resophonic guitar, and the other half in an electric session where Mark plays an 8-string straight steel.
All four tunes are Lavengood originals, recorded on Mark’s newest acquisition.
“Last summer I raised $6,400 with my Kickstarter campaign – part of it went to investing in my new, custom Rayco resonator (who I now endorse), and the other part went to making this vinyl.
Here’s a listen to one of the tracks, Roll On, Rayco, Roll which Mark dedicated to his new guitar.
When you purchase the vinyl EP, you also get a download link to grab the tracks (with 2 bonus tunes) digitally.
