CD Review: The Damngivers Bring Back Classic Country Rock

From Long Beach, CA comes The Damngivers with a self-titled debut EP available through CDBaby.com. The Damngivers is country-rock at its purest, including pedal steel guitars, feel-good lyrics and topped with Gerry Gomez's aged vocals.

The EP begins with the fun, up-tempo "Your Mouth Doesn't Know What Your Mind Oughta" with Gerry belting out his playful words. The heartfelt lyrics of "Lift Me Up" plays-out like a campfire sing-along. The radio-friendly "Plan On Me" contains the perfect combination of instrumentation and a memorable chorus that keeps you returning to this song.

The album was produced by Gerry Gomez and Anthony Arvizu (Ryan Bingham), who also engineered and mixed the album. Visit damngivers.com for more information on one of country-rock's newest bands.
