'Like' us on Facebook - Engineer - Nick SmithAudio & Video production by Joe Lynch and Brian LevinPRESENTED BY HADY MAWAJDEHMichael Fracasso recently released his seventh album, Saint Monday. The recording marks a more experimental path for Fracasso, who's been a nationally acclaimed singer-songwriter for two decades. Rather than take a more conventional approach to his newest material, Fracasso called in his friend, novelist Jim Lewis, to produce and play on the record -- Lewis' first -- and co-write a few of the songs. "It's like being called down from the stands to coach the Yankees," say Lewis. For Lewis -- whose most recent novel, The King is Dead (Knopf), was named a New York Times Notable Book of the Year -- it was a chance to work with some of his favorite musicians.Guest appearances feature Patty Griffin, who lends her incomparable voice (and her lesser-known whistling skills) to a rocking Everly style duet called "Ada, OK" and Kevin Russell and Jimmy Smith from the legendary Gourds, as well as a crack rhythm section composed of Fracasso's long time collaborators George Reiff and Mark Patterson on bass and drums.www.michaelfracasso.comTUNE IN AGAIN SOON FOR MORE FROM BALCONYTV AUSTIN!!!
