CD Review: Massy Ferguson Drinks "Hard Water"

Massy Ferguson, from Seattle, WA, will release their sophomore album "Hard Water" on October 19 through Spark & Shine Records. The band has become a fixture in the Seattle rock scene as well as opening for nationally known acts as Son Volt, Fastball and Bill Kreutzmann of the Grateful Dead. Their new album is looking to make an impact on the east coast as well as on the west coast.

"Hard Water" begins strong with the rocker "Long Time." The songs carry an almost southern rock/americana flair with lyrics that are hard to resist as displayed in "Pretty Plain Jane" and "Sparks and Shrapnel." The band's passion shines through on the storytelling "Freedom County" while the gentleness of "Dreams of St. Peterburg" is also a welcome addition to this mostly good-time guitar rock album.

Massy Ferguson is already performing dates in the Washington state area for the next couple of months. For more information, please visit their website www.myspace.com/massygeruson.
